Local Guide Where to Stay

Discover the Pacific Northwest

Nestled in Washington’s beautiful natural landscape, the state’s largest city, Seattle sits overlooking Puget Sound in the shadow of the impressive Mount Rainier National Park. This beautifully green city offers thousands of acres of parkland and is surrounded by water, mountains and evergreen forests providing immediate access to some of the greatest wilderness the country has to offer.

Just three hours south of Seattle, the city of Portland offers a similar experience but with a slightly different, easygoing charm. Sitting on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, Portland is overlooked by the snow-dusted peak of Mount Hood. This artisan city is known for its beautiful parks, laidback coffee houses, and general eco-friendly vibe.
