Washington

Which part of Washington is the prettiest?

One of the things people love about living in Washington is its natural beauty. Sure, the average American who doesn’t know Washington could tell you that we have a lot of trees and the sea, and maybe they would mention the mountains. These would all be correct estimates, but Washington has so much more to offer than just the picture-perfect highlights.

Don’t worry, I heard the giggles. Though Seattle gets a lot of criticism for its problems, which sometimes spill over into its nicer neighborhoods, it’s hard to argue that Seattle is beautiful. The view of the waterfront, Pike Place, the Mercer Island area, the view of Mt Rainier. Sure Seattle needs some TLC, but it’s still nice.

There’s plenty for your eyes to love in Spokane, such as River Park Square. But how about the legendary Spokane Falls?

It’s been too long since my last visit to the Tulip Festival.

Actually, all of Washington’s islands are beautiful, but I’ve really only spent time on Whidbey. Beaches can be rocky, but otherwise it hits every note of a Pacific Northwest paradise.

Part of that is knowing that people had to ride their horses or walk through those areas of Washington that now have massive highway systems. Makes you respect our history a little more, doesn’t it?

The Walla Walla Valley has more to offer than just Walla Walla itself and is well worth exploring.

Snoqualmie Pass is especially pretty if you’re not the one pinching the wheel, and gives you a chance to actually appreciate it.

I find the Cascades prettier than the Rockies and will not disagree with that opinion.

The Columbia Basin is home to vineyards, farms, rivers and more.

If Walla Walla and the Columbia Basin are celebrated internationally for their grape harvest and wine industry, the Yakima Valley is basically that, but for beer.

AZ: Celebrities you didn’t know were from Washington

Who knew Washington State was home to so many celebrities? So many, in fact, that it was really hard to figure out who made the list. There were so many athletes and musicians to choose from that we started looking in other directions. However, we had a rule. There are no serial killers or professional criminals on this list. Thanks to Jeff Deminski from New Jersey for this wonderful idea.
