This former coal mining community is perhaps best known for the role it played as Cicely, Alaska in the hit TV show Northern Exposure. The town's close proximity to Seattle, nestled in the Cascade Mountains 85 miles east, makes it a fun place to escape from the city. Visitors can enjoy unique experiences like exploring the Roslyn Museum and dinging at the Roslyn Cafe, featured prominently on Northern Exposure. Fun fact: In 2009, the band Bon Iver collaborated with musician St. Vincent to record the song "Roslyn" named after the small town. It was featured in the Twilight Saga's film New Moon.
