About Washington

Heavy in rugged and vast forests, Washington is rich in many natural resources and is a leader in lumber production. The state ranks first in the production of many fruits and vegetables, including apples, pears, cherries, lentils, and raspberries. Most notably known for salmon and halibut, commercial and recreational fishing contributes significantly to the state economy. 

Washington also has a significant manufacturing industry, producing aircraft, ships, and transportation equipment. Machinery, lumber, metal products, and food processing are also other important industries in the state. 

Washington is one of the greatest states in natural beauty, with spectacular rugged mountain ranges and peaks spread across the state. The most famous peak in the state is Mount St. Helens, the most active volcano in modern U.S. history. Mount Rainier and Mount Olympia are two other breathtaking peaks that many tourists flock to each year for camping, hiking, mountain fishing, and skiing. 

The list of tourist attractions is quite long. Washington has lots of amazing landforms found nowhere else in the country. Seattle is certainly a beautiful city, its skyline made famous by many incredible photos taken from Queen Anne hill. Don't forget to make a trip to the top of the Space Needle, built for the 1962 Worlds Fair. The Puget Sound is full of beautiful islands, breathtaking peaks, and vistas. Many pods of Orcas make their home here, as should you. Sure it rains a lot here, but when the sky is clear, Washington is one of the most beautiful states in the Union.
