Washington State is a study in contrasts. Formed by volcanic upheaval and born out of a fierce, independent pioneer spirit, the state’s stunning vistas and energetic work centers inspire new ideas that can change the world.
Washington has an international reputation as a Mecca for those who love the great outdoors, a place where you can surf the ocean in the morning, play 18 holes at a PGA championship golf course in the afternoon, and still have enough time to get in a few black diamond ski runs before bedtime.
If your idea of a workout is finding a place to dine or enjoy a show, you’ll find Washington is more than up to the task. Some of the best restaurants in the United States can be found here along with a vibrant arts scene, from symphonies, ballets and operas to museums, theaters and galleries.
