Visit Washington  - a Northwest Treasure!

  The state of Washington is located in the Pacific Northwest
region of the United States. It is bordered by British Columbia in Canada to the north, Idaho to the east and Oregon to the south.
Washington was admitted as the forty-second state in the union in 1889 after it was carved out of the western part of the Washington Territory which was under British rule until 1846. More than sixty percent of the state’s population lives in or around the Seattle metropolitan area which is the center for transportation and business.
The remaining areas of Washington State are made up of large mountain ranges in the northeast and southwest and small mountain ranges in the middle. Vacationers enjoy the deep rainforests in the west as well as hiking and camping in the mountains.
The capital of Washington is Olympia which is a major cultural center in Puget Sound. The region is well known for its beautiful deep fjords, islands and bays all of which have been carved out over millions of years by giant glaciers and water. Every year thousands of photographers from around the world descend on the state to take pictures of the beautiful scenery to create all kinds printed material and brochures.
Although Washington is surrounded by natural beauty it isn’t simply a collection of beautiful landscapes, it is incredibly rich in history, heritage, culture and arts. In fact, Washington State is a fascinating mixture of maritime, agricultural and high-tech influences all of which contribute to create the state’s cultural heritage.
There are plenty of things to do in Washington. Families with children can enjoy boating, camping, hiking, skiing, art museums, gaming and sports. Adults love the hundreds of spas and small bed and breakfasts that line the state’s west coast in small picturesque towns and villages.
Washington State has two major mountain ranges which are named the Olympic Mountains and the Cascade Range. Both ranges offer a number of places where families can get together to participate in out-of-doors activities such as mountain biking or taking a peaceful hike to enjoy the beauty of the state. In the winter there are countless snowboarding and skiing opportunities in the state. There are slopes for beginners and advanced skiers and children get to play in their own little ‘bunny slopes’ which are perfect for inner tubing downhill.
Washington is the land of ranchers and farmers, fishermen and cowboys and loggers and sailors. It is also home to high-tech visionaries and ambitious entrepreneurs who have helped shaped the future of the United States and together have made the union more prosperous.
Be sure to visit Washington State. There are countless things you can do. You can enjoy a family vacation or simply relax by the ocean. You’ll find beautiful natural scenes that make you think deeply about the world we live in and you’ll build memories that will last a lifetime.
