Spring break trip: Washington State

Washington State is a great place to go and visit. Over spring break, I got a chance to see a lot of Washington, from Mount St. Helens to the University of Washington. There is a lot to see and do. You can usually find affordable tickets all year around ($300-$318).

When you are in Seattle you are in the land of the Starbucks. There is almost a Starbucks on every block. That is where the first Starbucks is and the head offices are.

I recommend going to the pier in downtown Seattle. There are lots of great shops along the pier. There is the ferris wheel, which I would recommend going on day or night.

Another great spot in Seattle I recommend going to is Pike Place Market. There are a bunch of cool shops underground. There are also a lot of good seafood places that have fresh seafood that they got from the Market that morning.

Another thing to do in Washington, if you like the Twilight movies or books, is to go to Forks. The town of Forks is based on the book and has nothing to do with the movie (they actually filmed the movie somewhere else). Some things you can do are: you can stay in a cute bed n’ breakfast, you can go to Port Angeles and eat at Bella Italia and have mushroom ravioli, you can always go to La Push where you can see the water and cliffs. The Forks town is all about Twilight. It is not a very pretty town, and there is not much to do, but I strongly recommend staying in the bed n’ breakfast if you do end up going there.

The one last thing I want to tell you about is going to see the Olympic National Park which is by Olympia. It is so pretty and super cool to walk through. The trees having a bunch of moss on them and they call the moss “The snow of Washington.” There is a part of the forest that is North America’s only rain forest. There are tall trees with moss covering them. It’s one of the coolest things I have ever seen.

So, if you want to take a nice trip, for not a lot of money, you may want to check out Washington State.
