There’s much more to be explored on a vacation to Washington State than just rain-covered streets and coffee. Washington’s diverse land is full of urban hubs, volcanoes, and coastline waiting to be discovered. Washington’s Puget Sound region is home to the state’s largest city, Seattle. What trip to Seattle is complete without a visit to the iconic Space Needle? Visitors should also stop by the historic Pike Place Market for a smorgasbord of fresh seafood, cheese, and flowers. Within the towering Cascade Range of mountains lies Washington’s most explosive inhabitants. Mount Rainier is the tallest mountain in the state, and is considered to be the most dangerous volcano in the range. However, its neighbor, Mount St. Helens is the only Washington volcano that is actively erupting. The Pacific coastline in Washington State is some of the most unique in the world. It’s dotted with artist havens, actual rain forests, and even beach towns. Another distinguishing factor of Washington’s coast are the sea stacks. These are geological landforms that look like vertical columns, and are eagerly awaiting a photo-op. After one trip to Washington State, you’ll never be confused with the state and the District of Columbia again!
