There are 2 places, in fact, where you can find a little bit of heaven in Washington state. If you have been to either one of these places, then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.

Don't take my word for it. Take the word of those who have actually been there and loved it so much, they had to share it with the world on Reddit.
