The northwest state of Washington is one of the most diverse states in the United States. The “Evergreen State” captivates in addition to its huge green forest areas with miles of beaches along the Pacific Ocean, snow-capped mountains, dry deserts, rocky river valleys and climbable volcanoes.
Washington is named after the first American president and is known to many people primarily by Seattle – one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Companies such as Starbucks and Microsoft as well as the first-class music scene carried their products from here to the world. The Space Needle, the structural symbol of the city, also became famous in Germany through series such as “Grey’s Anatomy”.
The state of Washington excites above all with its impressive and diverse natural landscapes. With the Olympic, the North Cascades and the Mt. Rainier National Park, there are three national parks in Washington, which could hardly be more different and are highly recommended as excursion destinations.
Washington offers enough points of contact to spend a vacation of several weeks here. It is said that even the locals have by no means seen all the highlights in their region because there are simply too many. Convince yourself and travel to the “Evergreen State”.
