  • Olympia

Located at the south end of the Puget Sound, Olympia, Washington's state capital, is graced with elegant government buildings and gardens. Stroll across carefully groomed lawns for a closer look at the dome on the Capitol. If you're after some fresh air after exploring the inner workings of the State, mosey out to Capitol Lake Park for fun in the water and a picnic on the grass. Or, walk along the harbor for salt air and regular sea gull sightings.

  • Olympic National Park

From ice encrusted-crags to crisp glacial lakes, salty ocean beaches and the deep, quiet damp of temperate rainforest, the Olympic National Park is a small paradise on earth. Bears meander along slopes strewn with wildflowers in summer, while visitors wander narrow trails that penetrate this beautiful wilderness. A relatively short jaunt from the civilized world, a visit to the Olympics can be short, sedate and scenic or, with the proper pack, long, solitary and strenuous.

  • Port Townsend

Port Townsend runs down to the waters edge on the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula. With spectacular views of the Olympics to the south and a stretch of the Juan de Fuca straights to the north, Port Townsend seems like the edge of wilderness, despite the close proximity of the San Juan Islands, Whidbey Island and Victoria B.C. Port Townsend has plenty of attractions to keep visitors occupied, though most pass through on their way see Olympic splendors.

  • Seattle

Seattle's skyline is at its best when the sun begins to sink into Puget Sound. The harbor takes on the colors of sunset and glass office buildings grow bright with blinding intensity before night descends on the city, revealing the Space Needle's graceful silhouette. Seattle is a cosmopolitan city - the modern coffee craze was born here in this bustling commercial port city. Today, the arts thrive in Seattle and outdoor pursuits are an integral part of city life. Seattle is sophisticated yet earthy, a mix of martini's, urban-hip, runners and Recreational Equipment Inc.(REI), headquartered here. While the proliferation of downtown parks means that a stretch of grass is never far away, Seattle's infamous rain sometimes drives the public indoors to the numerous educational and entertaining attractions that make Seattle such a great destination.

  • Tacoma

Located just west of the Puget Sound's bear claw-like protrusion into Washington lands, Tacoma has waterfront views in addition to a fine selection of parks and cultural offerings. Port Defiance Park, north of Tacoma's center, sprawls out on 700 acres of land jutting into the Puget Sound. While the park's proximity to civilization limits natural wildlife spotting, a zoo and aquarium allows visitors to choose between tigers and sharks in a controlled environment. Arts flourish in the Seattle-Tacoma area. Stop in at the Museum of Glass, then, when glassy-eyed, head over to the Tacoma Art Museum or Washington State History Museum for a little variety. Outdoor enthusiasts will be pleased to know that Tacoma is within easy driving distance from both Mt Rainier National Park and Mt St Helens National Volcanic Monument.
