Seattle & Washington State TourismWashington State is in the Pacific Northwest where Seattle crowns the state and regular cruises head to Alaska. Seattle is a city where art and nature meet, and foodie's fantasies come true. The ocean backcloth is the Olympic Peninsula, mountains and beautiful islands where whale watching, boating and kayaking experiences await. Washington State has three national parks (Mt. Rainier / Olympic / North Cascades), mountain ranges, volcanoes and rainforests of bearded mossy, massive girthed trees. This year, Washington's burgeoning wine industry has blossomed to over 900 wineries. It's a state of spectacular contracts, superb for fly-drive holidays, with a choice of direct non-stop daily flights into Seattle's SeaTac International Airport.
