Washington Flights GuideWashington is northernmost state on the West Coast of the United States, and interestingly, is known for its production of apples. It's home to a number of sites you are sure to have heard of, including Mount Rainier National Park (where the volcanic Mount Rainier is located), Mount Olympus at the Olympic National Park, the Cascade Range, and the Columbia River Gorge.
These locations boast camping and hiking opportunities, with views of waterfalls, glaciers, wildflowers, marine sanctuaries, and canyons. The capital of Washington is Seattle where cloud cover is almost constant and coffee is taken very seriously. The Space Needle offers a view of the entire city, and slowly spins if you eat at its restaurant for an aerial view. Other cities in Washington include Spokane, Tacoma, Bellevue, and Tacoma. Fly into Seattle-Tacoma International or Spokane International. Despite the rain, the climate of Washington is mild - June through August is a bit warmer, but not too hot, and often sees less rainfall than the winter months of November through February, which are moderately cold.
