the evergreen state
Home to three national parks, this state nestled in the northwest corner of the country is a hugely popular destination for tourists looking to explore the great outdoors. The carefully preserved Hoh Rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula gets about 14 feet of water and is an iconic temperate rainforest in the Pacific Northwest. Southeast of Seattle lies Mt. Rainer, a historic mountain peak that has 25 major glaciers. With over 140 state parks, Washington has something to offer for anyone who needs to reconnect with nature.
