Guides to Washington

The cradle of the Pacific Northwest, shrouded in rain and far from traditional power centers, Washington has carved its own destiny the way the Native Americans once carved their totems. The state -- led by explosive growth in Seattle -- has emerged as an economic force to be reckoned with, and an accompanying mythology has emerged to explain the phenomenon. Think Bill Gates, Starbucks, and the Inland Empire; think Nirvana, rain, and Mt. Rainier. The newest land of opportunity has lured droves of Easterners away from their cramped cubicles, up from the subways and trains, and into the great outdoors. From Seattle to Spokane, Washington is a land of amazing diversity, with seemingly limitless opportunities for every recreational and professional interest.

Accompanying the state's booming commerce is an equally vibrant and diverse cultural life. From Pearl Jam to Picasso, no aspect of artistic expression goes unexplored or unexpressed. Native American traditions rub shoulders with avante garde performance art. Simultaneously, the old West influence emerges at rodeos and county fairs throughout the state, where more conventional values and expressions are given voice. What can we say? Washington's far-ranging economy, unique environment, and raw natural resources reinforce its reputation as the happenin' place to be.
