Pacific Northwest Highlights
While many developed areas seem to go against nature, there are a lot of ingrained features in Seattle and the whole of the Pacific Northwest that do their best to incorporate nature into their very fiber, from front-lawn vegetable gardens, to the many trees on every street, the area's residents embrace the powerful presence of the nature that has shaped the region.
Your trip could include navigations around the glacial fjords of San Juan or a hike through the Olympic Mountains
. A cruise along the Snake River
will wind you through the majestic Pacific Northwest, traversing an intricate system of locks, and ultimately draining into the Columbia River
, where you can catch breathtaking views of the proud Cascade Mountains.
"As big as the city is, there’s an omnipresent feeling that nature still rules the roost."
–Nick Wojtasik, Seattle resident & travel writer.
"The scenic mountain views are incredible."
