The landscape of the state of Washington features two distinct sections. In the western regions, green forests full of tall trees and babbling waterfalls dominate the landscape. In the eastern portion, desert conditions offer extensive views and warm temperatures. Between the two sections lie the Cascades, a lushly forested mountain range that serves as the natural division between east and west. Beyond the natural beauty of the state, there are plenty of attractions to find in the state's cities and towns, including art shows, cultural events, theater products and more.
