Washington is a state in the United States and its capital is Olympia. It is bounded by the states of Oregon, Idaho and the Canadian province of British Columbia on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. The state is named after America’s first President, George Washington and is referred to as Washington State to distinguish it from the national capital Washington, DC. Its vivid landscape stretches through deserts, pine forests, mountains, volcanoes, coastlines and hundreds of coastal islands. This American beauty reserves a special part of its a signature treat- the giant conifers drip with lush green mosses in the Hoh Rain Forest, dormant volcanoes (Mount Rainier and Mount Baker) and the devastating after effects of an eruption (Mount St. Helens) - to its visitors who choose to look beyond its traditional offerings in arts, classic architecture and delectable cuisines and a host of outdoor activities (like hiking, skiing, fishing and bird watching).
Olympic National Park on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State is a closed bracket of four distinct regions- the Pacific coastline, alpine, the west side temperate rainforest and the east side drier forests. This park is home to some classic rounds of picture-perfect scenery and geographical formations, and two highlights here are Hoh Rainforest and Hurricane Ridge.
The Space Needle is an observation tower in Seattle and the last standing trademark of the 1962 World Fair. It was built in the Seattle Center and clocking at 605 feet, it was then the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River. Climbing atop this superstructure yields a dramatic cityscape consisting of downtown Seattle, the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, Elliott Bay and surrounding islands.
With 97% of its lush spread preserved as wilderness, the Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State makes a compelling case for itself as a tourist magnet. This late 19th century park is best known for its lordly views on its highest point in the Cascade Range that dance around valleys, waterfalls, subalpine meadows, old-growth forest, trails, glaciers and even a dormant volcano. Another attraction here is Paradise, the site of the Paradise Inn (built in 1916) and Paradise Guide House (built in 1920).
