5 Must See Places in the Northwest United States

The Northwest United States is a gorgeous wonderland full of mountains, forests and lots to explore. If you've never been to Washington or Oregon, here are five of the must see places for when you plan your trip!

Multnomah Falls

Multnomah Falls is a gorgeous waterfall that is just a 30 minute drive outside of Portland. Towering at 620 feet high, it is breathtaking to see, especially in the winter! Currently, it is the tallest waterfall in the state of Oregon.

The Space Needle

Visiting the rainy city is never complete without seeing the Space Needle. The view from 520 feet up lets you see all of Seattle from a new light. Plus you can even see the Cascades in the distance! The Space Needle is a must see if you're in Seattle.

Bellevue, Washington

There are so many things to do in Bellevue from shopping downtown to just enjoying the scenes.

Bellevue has an amazing array of cultural and scenic places to visit, making it one of the best places to visit and live in Washington.

Bellevue is located right across Lake Washington from Seattle making it the perfect place to be close to everything. This area of Washington state is known for all the beautiful scenery and its outdoor parks and recreation. Bellevue is a very charming place to unwind and even make home.

Since it is so close to Seattle, it is a convenient place to live if you don't want to live in a major metro city. Plus you are close to all the museums and cultural places including the Bellevue Museum of the Arts, KidsQuest, and Bellevue Square. 

Located on the water, Bellevue is the perfect place to see for a visit or make home. It has a quaint artistic vibe and a cozy atmosphere. And if you're looking for an apartment in Bellevue, you will no doubt have some amazing scenery with all the nature around you!

If you're searching for a place to live, using an online apartment guide is very useful. Not only can you search for your desired price but you can see the locations on a map of where you would like to live. For this, I would recommend Zumper. You can submit digital applications over the computer using their screening service, their listings are updated in real time, and you can filter to get real time alerts sent to you too. 

Crater Lake National Park

If you're in Southern Oregon, Crater Lake National Park is an amazing place to visit. It is the only National Park in Oregon and the park itself encompasses the caldera of Crater Lake, the remnant of a destroyed volcano.

Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon is a fun city, especially for families to visit. You have everything from Japanese Gardens, a Zoo, a children's museum and even an amusement park. Portland is a must see if you're traveling with kids!
