Overview

Washington is one of the greatest places to visit in the United States and the Evergreen nickname doesn`t do it much justice. Generally, the mild climate and ubiquitous rainfall lends a refreshing year-round lushness to the state`s landscape. But there is much more to its panoramic splendor. Perpetually snow-capped mountains, including the majestic Mount Rainier, glaciers, rushing rivers, rocky seacoasts and dense rain forests are all part of Washington`s varied natural scenery.

Both the traveler who gets most of his or her scenery from the car and the adventurer who enjoys the outdoors will find Washington State to their liking. Larry Ludmer is a professional travel writer who has authored ten other books including five in the Open Road Guide series. His focus on the western United States, and his familiarity with Washington, will lead you to famous destinations and unknown points of interest. Descriptions of places to stay and where to eat are numerous and detailed. Among the many useful features of the Washington Guide are several suggested itineraries for those who don`t like to plan their own trips plus dozens of tid-bits on getting the best prices for airline connections, car rentals and lodging. Whether you follow one of the author`s pre-planned excursions or make your own itinerary, the Washington Guide contains everything you need to know to make a successful trip. Covering the length and breadth of the state, the author will take you on a fascinating journey from cosmopolitan Seattle (long considered one of the best places to live in the United States), to small towns on the islands of Puget Sound, to famous resort destinations. You`ll find that there is a whole lot more to the Evergreen State than you ever imagined. Come enjoy all it has to offer!
