Pike Place Market Sign

Puget Sound
A wonderful place to start your visit to Seattle is Pike Place Market. This is home to a large variety of shops, which include fish, vegetables, fruits and delicacies for you to enjoy. Celebrating its centennial in 2007, Pike Place Market is world famous for its flying fish thrown back and forth by vendors to amuse tourists. Finish your visit with a cup of coffee at the very first Starbucks store located on Western Avenue, directly in the center of all the activity.

Puget Sound
A feat of engineering and beauty, the bridges I-90 and 520 are essential to connect Washington's two major cities, Seattle and Bellevue (along with Mercer Island), together over Lake Washington in elegant style. Both have been slowly evolving since I-90 was first built in the 1940's and 520 followed in the 1960's. Recently a second bridge was added on I-90 in the 1990's to help with the explosive growth in the Seattle area. These bridges are a marvel of modern achievement, sure to boost your auto across the lake in no time, while overlooking Lake Washington.

Snoqalmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls
Snoqualmie Falls is one of Washington's most popular scenic attractions known worldwide due to its appearance in the cult television show "Twin Peaks." Over 1.5 million people visit the falls which are almost 30 stories high. The Salish Lodge, located at the top of the falls, is especially sought out for its luxury accommodations and spa, as well as its breathtaking view of the falls and picturesque valley below. After enjoying the falls, stop by the new Snoqualmie Casino for a night of dining and games.


Walla Walla Wine Country
Lake Washington is the second largest lake in the State (behind Lake Chelan) and boarders the cities of Seattle, Bellevue and Kirkland. The fresh water lake has been the center of boating and leisure activity for a century. On any summer day, you may see luxury yachts piloted by the founders of Microsoft, and float planes being flown by Boeing executives. While boating on Lake Washington you can watch the Seahawks practicing at their new state of the art facility. After a dip in the water enjoy a delicious meal and tasty beverage from the variety of waterfront restaurants and venues lining the shore.

Mount Rainier

Mount Rainier
Mount Rainier, or Mount Tahoma, as it is traditionally called, is a large active strato-volcano. At 14,411 feet (4,392 m) it towers over the Cascade Range as the most prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and Cascade Volcanic Arc. It is the tallest volcano and fifth highest peak in the contiguous United States. It is the highest mountain in Washington and the Cascade Range. On days of exceptional clarity, it can be seen from as far away as Portland Oregon, and Victoria British Columbia.

Generally, up to two million people visit Mount Rainier each year, and about 10,000 people attempt to climb it. About half of the attempts are successful, with weather and conditioning being the most common reasons for failure. The park provides some of the best hiking, camping, picnicking and sightseeing in the world.

Orca Breaching

What is that thunder in the sky? Or is it rumbling in the water? It must be the boom from the cannon of the pirates of Seafair, a major festival celebrating the Northwest's connection to its maritime roots. Commencing on the shores of Lake Washington every August, the event features food and activities, but is most known for action-packed Hydroplane racing and a yearly appearance by the Blue Angles aerobatics team. Each experience makes this event one not to be missed.

San Juan Islands

Puget Sound
A visit to the Pacific Northwest would not be complete without a trip on a cabin cruiser or Ferry through the majestic San Juan Islands. Nestled in the tranquil Puget Sound between Seattle and Canada, this collection of small quiet islands is host to abundant sea life, fantastic marine animals and stunning scenic beauty. This would have to be experienced firsthand to be truly appreciated. Pack a meal for the day or camp for a week, treasure this part of the world as our gift to you.
