About the Northwest
Refresh your sense of wonder along the Cascade Loop Scenic Byway beginning just 28 miles North of Seattle. We explore the Cascade Mountain range and take you through the North Cascades National Park, along the semi-arid Columbia River Valley, past glacier-fed Lake Chelan to the Puget Sound where Orca Whales play. Experience three National Forests, island beaches, lush farmlands, high-desert vistas and glacier-clad peaks. Our friendly towns welcome you with comfortable accommodations and delicious Northwest cuisine. Free 68-page Travel Planner.
