The Pacific Northwest of the United States is incredibly beautiful. With major cities, cliffs, national parks, and amazing beaches, this is truly an experience you cannot pass up with your friends or family. If you’re looking to explore the United States a little bit more, we believe you should consider traveling to the Pacific Northwest to witness the great beauty it has to offer.

How to Get to the Pacific Northwest

City skyline in Portland with Mountain peak

Depending on what part of the country you’ll be traveling from, it’s recommended that you fly into a major city like Portland or Seattle. Once you arrive, it’s best to have a rental car or RV rental ready for your travels. Why do we suggest this? Driving along the coast and to the national parks requires packing up necessities that can take up space. You’ll need some storage space, and who wouldn’t want to explore these areas with a camper van?

Must-See Cities in the PNW

When deciding on what cities to explore, there are some you must see to experience the life and culture of the Pacific Northwest.

Portland, Oregon

Portland is a beautiful city with plenty of culture, night life, festivals, restaurants, and much more. If you’re looking for a culture-filled city, this is the place to go visit along your exploration of the Pacific Northwest.

Seattle, Washington

Seattle, Washington is different than Portland, but it is also filled with amazing restaurants, bars, and events you can check out.

National Park Adventure in PNW

Along the Pacific Northwest, you’ll find some of the best national parks. One thing to remember is that these parks can get heavily crowded, so it’s important to map out your national park adventure a head of time. Roadtrippers is a great site to map out your road trip through the destination cities, national parks, and beaches. You can edit and add stops along your route to make it easier for traveling.

Here are some must-see national parks and sites to stop at:

  • Mount Rainier National Park
