With massive glaciers, powerful waterfalls, and alpine meadows, Mount Rainier National Park is among one of Washington's most spectacular reserves, but it can be hard to get to, especially in heavy traffic. Visiting the active volcano on a guided tour lets you focus on the views while your guide takes on the hassle of driving. Plus your guide knows some of the best stops to make at some of the most beautiful places in the park.

If you want to see the city of Seattle and it’s beauty from above, you can also see the mountains that surround Seattle, breathtaking view from the highest building in the city! Go around sunset time, it’s worth to check out!

I love going to the observatories in different cities, but I don't love paying $40 a ticket. That was the main reason we didn't visit the Space Needle (or at least why we didn't go up). My fiancé found a solution to this when he found the SkyView Observatory. It was half the

Didn't feel very special at all. Waitress didn't even walk to us to deliver the champagne or chocolate covered strawberries. I had to walk and ask her several times, then I just went and got it myself. Nothing special about the floor, very casual.
