The Best Pacific Northwest Places To See Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Aries – March 21 – April 19
An Aries is bold, ambitious, and brazenly audacious. You gravitate towards leadership roles, being the trailblazers of their friend group. You are quick to show up and support, but don’t hold back on unsolicited advice (but it’s all out of love!).
Your determination and attention to detail mean you are the perfect person to plan the coolest, most adventurous backpacking trip of the summer. You have the excitement and boldness of a child, so you’re not afraid to push yourself and your group to the limits of what you think is possible.
A backpacking trip to Cascade Arm in North Cascades National Park and camping at Sahale Glacier Camp is sure to make you come alive. Plan a trip in Late July or Early August to catch the alpine wildflowers and some potential for great weather.
Other epic backpacking trips & challenging day hikes to consider:
- Colchuck Lake in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness
- Hiking The Enchantments in One Day (unless you snagged a permit!)
Taurus – April 20 – May 20
Taurus is the most chill of all the Earth signs. However, chill doesn’t mean lazy! You are highly organized, driven, and have a great internal balance that you take at your own pace.
You, Taurus, are deeply rooted in the elements and have a profound appreciation for nature. Witnessing a beautiful location with your own eyes can spark a desire to preserve and protect, which makes you a great advocate for outdoor recreation for all.
Consider taking a Vancouver Island road trip to some of the most remote old-growth forests in the Pacific Northwest. Avatar Grove is the perfect place to learn about the forest’s history, conservation, and stand among the truly giant trees.
More places for a Taurus to be immersed in nature:
- Fern Canyon Trail In the Redwood National Park
- Leslie Gulch in the Owyhee Wilderness (Eastern Oregon)
Gemini – May 21 – June 20
Gemini, you do a little bit of everything! You are naturally talented, fun to be around, and pretty much say yes to every opportunity placed at your feet! You can be a tad indecisive, so a great way to balance this out is with short weekend trips from Seattle.
Even better, you have the ability to RALLY for hikes in Washington at the crack of dawn. That means you are the ultimate friend to take that fire lookout sunrise hike that’s been on your bucket list forever. You prefer a grand adventure, but also love returning home to your cozy bed at the end of the day!

Cancer – June 21 – July 22
Cancer, you are compassionate, complicated, and feel all of your emotions deeply. Your highly emotional and intuitive nature makes you the perfect Pacific Northwest travel companion for contemplative and rich experiences.
Lean into your water sign with a breathtaking Oregon Coast road trip. With endless beaches to roam, waves crashing on the shore, and incredible views, you can fulfill your sense of adventure and connect with your surroundings at the same time. Spend a slow weekend on the Northern Oregon Coast, or see the whole coast on one long weekend trip.
More scenic and beautiful PNW trips fit for an imaginative Cancer:
- Hiking The Gorgeous Elk Flats Trail (Near Cannon Beach, Oregon)
- Hiking Cape Flattery Trail (Corner of Washington)
- A dreamy 3 days in Tofino, Canada
Leo – July 23 – August 22
As a Spotlight seeking fire sign, Leo, your warm-hearted and cheerful nature fills the room! You have lots of friends, and always seem to be the life of the party. You will jump at the opportunity to plan a weekend trip – it doesn’t have to be far! As long as you can have a good time with the people you love, the destination really doesn’t matter.
This is why we think you are the ideal friend to book unique Pacific Northwest cabins to rent! Your creative nature gives you an excellent eye for spotting the best cribs – we’re taking ones with hot tubs, views, and of course, a big kitchen for fun gatherings! You are big-hearted, bring the vibes, and can create fun weekends that people will be talking about all year long.
More fun trips for Leo’s to plan in the PNW:
- Reserve an entire day for just your party at Scenic Hot Springs in Washington
- Gather your friends for some fun weekend trips from Boise
Virgo – August 23 – September 22
Virgo, you are one of the most thoughtful and reserved of all of the zodiac signs. Internally, you tend to be a perfectionist and an over-thinker, but your friends see your generous, practical, and pragmatic sides the best. You approach travel methodically and with caution, making sure that every stop on your road trip is written down in full detail (down to gas stations and snack break spots!).
Your careful attention to detail means that you will thrive when presented with a chance to visit a US National Park. Virgo, the Redwood National Park is an ideal Pacific Northwest destination for you, with incredible opportunities to visit nature in a very accessible, low-risk environment. You can drive the several scenic routes (like the Avenue of Giants) or walk among the many groves to feel connected with the world around you.
Here are more ways Virgos can connect with nature and beautiful destinations:
Libra – September 23 – October 22
Balanced, soft, and realistic, Libra, you bring peace everywhere you go. You are fascinated by symmetry and balance in nature, and you will happily take a guided tour just to hear about the rich history and geography of your destination. You tend to gravitate towards small, intimate packs for traveling and stay hyper-aware of the unity and comfort in the group.
You are a seeker of knowledge, history, and deep discussions about justice and equality in the outdoors. Spend a week in Glacier National Park, or even just 24 hours in Yosemite National Park, because these parks have lots of resources to help you in your quest for answers.
Lover of all things beautiful, Libra, you might also like these destinations:
Scorpio – October 23 – November 21
Did you see a beautiful nature scene on social media, but they didn’t share the location? It won’t be long until you, Scorpio, use your resourceful tools on the internet to find out exactly where it is! Not only that, but your intense passion and determination will craft up a grand adventure to see it with your own eyes before the day is over!
You tend to be calm, cool, and collected on the outside, but you keep your cards close to your chest to share only with your friends. This is what makes you a perfect partner in executing beautiful and mysterious adventures in the Pacific Northwest, especially if they involve hard to reach places. Consider taking a trip to the Southern Oregon Coast, where places like Samuel H. Boardman, Secret Beach, and coastal hikes feel like they were plucked right out of a fairytale.
Scorpio, you may also like these mysterious and adventurous PNW locations:
Sagittarius – November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius, you are definitely the most fun of the zodiac signs, bringing a great sense of humor and off-the-wall ideas to your upcoming road trip ideas. You are the ideal person to take on epic west coast road trips because you provide the perfect amount of deep conversation and adventure hype, and you sing along to all the best songs.
You can quickly get bored, so spontaneous trips with many unique stops are key to making the most of your time in the Pacific Northwest. Take the time to dive into one particular region (like this Northern California Road trip, or this Rocky Mountain road trip route) or plan a trip around cool features, like PNW hot springs or cool hiking spots.
Sagittarius, you might also like these feature-specific destinations:
Capricorn – December 22 – January 19
You, Capricorn are responsible, practical, and have high regard for traditions and practices. You are the person in the group who can take everyone’s wild travel dreams and mold them into actual attainable experiences. You have an uncanny ability to create masterful agendas, filling your days with destinations and making the most of every moment you are on vacation.
Because of your keen sense of organizing plans and people, you thrive in making masterful weekend plans. That’s why an Olympic Peninsula Road trip is the perfect Pacific Northwest destination for your zodiac sign. With different sections of the park (sea, mountains, rainforest) you will craft a unique and special experience for all.
More Pacific Northwest trips that require the keen planning of a Capricorn:
Aquarius – January 20 – February 18
As an Aquarius, you are one of the most introspective and thoughtful signs. This makes you an incredible asset to any group of traveling friends, because you can see both sides to an issue and quickly solve problems as they arise. You are unique and can surprise your group with original thoughts and ideas, making you the perfect person to supply the road trip podcasts and playlists.
You don’t like to do what everyone else is doing – rather, you’d prefer to find your own Pacific Northwest destinations that are unique and undiscovered. Consider lesser-known locations like the Wild Pacific Trail or Hart Mountain Hot Springs for the road less traveled.
Aquarius, you will like these other original and beautiful PNW destinations for your zodiac sign:
Pisces – February 19 – March 20
Daydreamer Pisces, you are the most tender of the water signs, full of compassion, gentleness, and intuition. Your go-with-the-flow mentality means that you can travel well with a variety of people. However, while kind to the core, you can get burned out really easily and have a hard time saying no, so you generally prefer smaller packs or more chill adventures.
You love romanticizing destinations and experiencing locations that feel like they belong on a different planet. Consider a trip to the Devil’s Punchbowl on the Oregon Coast, the Painted Hills, or stay the night at the Kalaloch Lodge to feel the power of these hauntingly beautiful places.
