Welcome to Washington

Washington in the Pacific Northwest comprises the northwestern corner of the contiguous U.S., forming the Pacific Coastline with Oregon and California to the south. Officially called the State of Washington to distinguish it from Washington DC, it is a large state with forested Cascade Mountain wilderness along the coast and vast rolling arid plains in the eastern interior. The Seattle metropolitan area, famous as the home of Microsoft, is the largest city and holds 60 percent of the state’s population. The Seattle Space Needle, the original Starbucks café, towering Mt. Rainier, the Olympic Peninsula rainforest, the islands of Puget Sound, craft breweries, and great seafood are noted state attractions.
