Washington State is a fantastic road trip destination full of amazing scenic drives and outdoor adventures. We’ve included some of these in our best USA road trips list.  

Olympic National Park

For its diversity, it’s hard to beat Olympic National Park, located in north western Washington. It’s one of the best things to do in Washington State. 

Mt Rainier National Park

Standing more than 4,300 meters above southern Washington, Mt Rainier is strikingly beautiful – we could see its awesomeness from Seattle. 

LA Conner and Deception Pass State Park

Tucked between the Cascade mountain range to the east and the San Juan Islands to the west, historical La Conner is a favorite weekend getaway for Seattle residents. 

North Cascades National Park

With dramatic alpine views to rival Glacier National Park, North Cascades National Park is one of the coolest places to visit in Washington State and offers a more secluded experience. 


Leavenworth is a tastefully done tourist town with a lot of soul and plenty of reasons to enjoy a little taste of Bavaria. And of course, a few pretzels, bratwurst, and steins – you are welcome to wear lederhosen while doing so!
