Washington Vacation Home Rentals
If there is heaven on earth, many would point to Washington as the prime example of it. Rugged coastline, deserts, forests, mountains, volcanoes and hundreds of coastal islands all contribute to this. It is an outdoor lover's paradise. The state has several regions. On the southeast of the Cascades is the Columbia River Plateau. Here you can see canyons, desert and steppes. The major communities are Kennewick, Walla and Yakima. If mountains and lakes are your thing than the North Cascades is your place. From Bellingham, Leavenworth and Wenatchee you can find some lovely secluded getaways. Rainforests and native culture await you on the Olympic Peninsula. While the state's largest cities are located on Puget Sound, you still find plenty of wildernesses in the islands and waters between Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula. Heading up north to San Juan Islands by ferry, boat, or kayak can get you some exquisite views and maybe even let you spot an orca or bald eagles.
If you are looking for things to do, consider these popular attractions. The Klondike Gold Rush - Seattle Unit National Historical Park which chronicles the story of the 1897-98 stampede to the Yukon gold fields and Seattle's role in this event, the Terminus of Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, Mount Rainier National Park and the 14,410 foot volcano, the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument which preserves the story of the moment that Mount St. Helens erupted, North Cascades National Park which is home to half of all the glaciers in the lower 48 states, Olympic National Park, and the San Juan Island National Historical Park where in 1859 the United States and Great Britain nearly went to war over a dead pig.
