Why do Airstream adventurers love the northwest corner of the country? We asked our residents and members why they’ve landed in the Pacific Northwest and this is what we learned.
#1 –The “Goldilocks” Climate
Ask any local Airstreamer why they love the Pacific Northwest and one of the first answers they’ll give is the climate. It’s not too hot and it’s not too cold.
Winters in Washington and Oregon, particularly west of the Cascade Mountains, are generally somewhat mild. Big snow storms are uncommon and temperatures don’t drop below freezing as often as they do elsewhere. Clouds, rain, and wind are common between November and April, but we’re usually blessed with a few sunny days in January and February to thaw out.
Summertime in the Pacific Northwest can’t be beat. Temperatures tend to stay in the 70s and 80s and there is little to no humidity most of the time. The skies are truly the bluest you’ve ever seen and the greenery is lush. Even residents who have lived here for years still marvel at all the shades of green in our spring and summer landscapes.
#2 – Easy Access to Mountains, Forests, Beaches, and Deserts
Airstreamers love adventure and seeing new sights. When you stay at the Washington Land Yacht Harbor, you’re within a few hours’ drive of Oregon’s sandy beaches, Washington’s dramatic rocky beaches, glacial mountains, a temperate rainforest, acres and acres of evergreen forests, and the deserts and grasslands of eastern Washington and Oregon. As long as you’re not in the mood for a tropical environment, you can get what you need in a few hours thanks to the Pacific Northwest’s high density of geographical variety.
#3 – An Active, Fun-Loving Airstreamer Community
When you visit or move to the Pacific Northwest with your Airstream, you’ll make fast friends who amplify the good times in a serious way! The Washington Airstream Club #112 is the largest club in the greater Airstream Club International. With over 300 members, Club #112 is headquartered at the Washington Land Yacht Harbor.
Thanks to the size of our club, our rally and caravan calendar is full of opportunities to socialize and adventure as a group. Airstreamers in the Pacific Northwest enjoy the support and comradery of fellow Airstreamers, a great advantage if you are a newcomer or if you run into trouble.
When you’re ready to choose your next home base or plan an epic adventure in your Airstream, put the Pacific Northwest at the top of your list. You’ll be happy you chose the Washington Land Yacht Harbor!
