We went on a day trip to Portland Oregon. It is about 180 miles (290km) one way. It usually takes little less than three hours on Interstate 5. About a half way there, there is a place called Tenino and we saw great building being built for last several trips. The place is called The Great Wolf Lodge.
We decided to visit and have breakfast there. It was an amusement park with huge indoor swimming pools and rides. There are a lot of customers. It was a lot more than we were expecting. We had buffet style breakfast ($13 each). We all thought it was an Indian Tribal Casino, but no casino there. We were really surprised by the amount of businesses they are generating being in middle of Seattle and Portland.
No recession there! It is a good sight to see.
