WASH STATE RANKS IN TOP TEN PLACES TO VISIT ON THE PLANET!
January 13, 2010
(NATIONAL) -- It was just last year that an Irish travel writer raved about visiting the Sky Valley – particularly up around Index and the general upper valley area – and some locales in Eastern Washington.
Now The Specialty Travel Agent’s Association has picked Washington State to be on the group’s annual Top Ten list of great places on the entire planet to visit.
In a statement the group said, “Washington State is an amazing destination for travelers and this year it makes the list as STAA’s top domestic pick. Cruisers can experience some of the most incredible coastal views of the Pacific Northwest as they make their way up the coast to Alaska, while others that follow the scenic drives through the North Cascades, Columbia River Gorge, Olympic Peninsula and Wine Country are treated to equally beautiful scenic treasures.”
“Also known for its salmon streams, oyster beds, wine and culinary delights, plus an array of outdoor activities that will challenge even the most avid sportsman, fisherman, runner, or hiker. There will be plenty to see and do, so if you haven’t had a chance to travel to Washington, this year might be the year.”
The group says Washington ranks right up there with great places to visit along with such diverse locations as Vancouver, B.C., Ireland, Brazil, Egypt and Italy.
