Others on the list range from Ellensburg to Winthrop.
Walla Walla made another list of top places. This time for being among the 10 Most Beautiful Towns in Washington.
The list was written by Marcelina Morfin for The Culture Trip, described as “a one-stop digital platform for global culture and lifestyle” for every country.
“From the west coast to the east coast, Washington is a photographer’s dream,” the piece opened. “Not only do they have lovely cities such as Seattle to capture on film, but also many towns and villages with distinct characteristics — from picturesque coastal finds to charming mountain towns and rural villages.”
Communities that made the cut: Ellensburg, Friday Harbor, La Conner, Leavenworth, Port Townsend, Poulsbo, Prosser, Republic, Walla Walla and Winthrop — clearly listed in alphabetical order.
