The PNW is rich with history, and this is especially true when moving to Southwest Washington as the area takes great pride in preserving and teaching on the Native American Culture within the area. From museums, shows, and even a popular ferry ride to the beautiful Tillicum Village where you can enjoy alder wood-roasted salmon and immerse yourself in ancient Salish stories, you can find many ways to learn about the culture and history of the area.
