Washington is known largely for its biggest city, Seattle, but when it comes to scientific destinations, the Emerald State is also very famous. Washington is not only confined to any one type of landscape but covers all types of activities like hiking to waterfalls, admiring snowcapped mountains, and spending the day at an island. We will now look upon the top places to visit in Washington.
Lake Chelan is a hub for scenery, outdoor activities, and wine tasting in the area. Visiting different vineyards is a major attraction to this region. For closer looks of the lakes, you can either do water skiing in summers or ride on a seaplane in winters, which would take off and land in the lake itself.
After Seattle, Spokane is the largest city in Washington. You can visit Riverfront Park and admire the beauty of the scenic Spokane River. The cities golf courses and recently developed breweries are also some places you would like to take a tour off.
The rushing waters of the falls make it an unforgettable place to visit, and it a very famous spot for photographers as the exceptional beauty of the waterfall is a scene that it must be captured. Short hiking trails have been made near the falls from where people can view the waterfall amongst the enormous trees and the green lush. A café and a souvenir shop have also been made nearby for you to buy snacks and small souvenirs that will help you remember your trip.
North Cascades National Park
More than half of the glaciers in the U.S are located in the North Cascades National Park. This park is also the home of a shocking amount of wildlife, including animals like bears, wolves, etc. Tourists usually hike or drive to Mount Baker, who is a volcano located in North Cascades to get a view of the most photographed peak of America, Mt. Shuksan.
San Juan Islands
Despite the fact that these islands are in proximity to Canada, they belong to the United States and particularly Washington. These islands give you an escape from the everyday busy life and give you the comfort of relaxing in a peaceful atmosphere, away from all the noise. You can also eat fresh seafood here and take a much closer look into the natural habitats of Orca Whales.
Washington State is full of mesmerizing locations and sites that you can visit and admire their beauty. Ranging from islands to mountains, forests, and lakes, it covers more or less everything. This in itself is a very attractive feature because when you decide to go somewhere for vacation, you would prefer that you find every source of amusement in one area, rather than having to travel a lot and spend your entire time in traveling. This would make your trip more tiring and exhausting, and you would not be able to enjoy it properly. Hence it is preferable that everything is in one state.
