Region/State: Washington

Washington State is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, offering a diverse range of activities that cater to all interests and skill levels. Its dynamic landscapes, from the rugged Pacific coastline to the soaring peaks of the Cascade Mountains, provide a stunning backdrop for a myriad of adventures. Hiking enthusiasts can explore the extensive trails at Mount Rainier National Park or venture into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness to find serene lakes and breathtaking vistas. Cyclists and mountain bikers have a wealth of paths and trails at their disposal, such as the scenic routes in the San Juan Islands or the challenging terrain of the Olympic Peninsula. For water lovers, kayaking and fishing are popular in the Puget Sound, the Columbia River Gorge, and along the many lakes dotting the state. In winter, the mountains offer excellent opportunities for skiing and snowboarding, particularly at destinations like Crystal Mountain and the renowned Whistler-Blackcomb, just across the Canadian border. Whether seeking the tranquility of nature or the thrill of an adrenaline rush, Washington provides an outdoor playground that is both vast and varied.
