A highlight of the learning center is the “Eruption Chamber” where visitors experience the sights and sounds of the eruption through news footage and eye-witness accounts. The multi-media event surrounds visitors with the blast that forever changed the landscape of the Pacific Northwest. Learn about the massive destruction caused by the eruption and the amazing return of plants, fish and wildlife. Take a virtual helicopter tour to soar above Mount St. Helens and surrounding forests.

    Visitor Centers
    Rick Steves' Europe image
    A perfect "10" for the Rick Steves' Best of Sicily 11-Day My 1st tour with any company. This was a perfect combination of scheduled time and free time. Sicily is just pure eye candy at every turn and a tiny island packed with amazing history and art! The tour guide, Stephanie, was an American expat, now living in Florence, who happens to be engaged to a Sicilian! She was able to articulate the cultural experience from our point of view, which was invaluable. There were additional, expert historian-docents almost everyday at the various sites and for city tours. As much as I look back and would have loved more days, I think the 11 days were perfect for my introduction to traveling with 30 people, plus it left all of us wanting more! Bella Sicilia y brava Stephanie!! See more..

  20. 4.5 Heather Meadows Visitor Center (9 reviews)
    - Most beautiful hike I’ve ever done
    Spent 1-2 hours Visitor Centers
    Heather Meadows Visitor Center image
    The visitors center had plenty of maps and rangers to help us choose the best hike for us. We decided to start at Artist Pointe and hike out and back to Hayes lake which helped us avoid the “strenuous” parts of the Chain Lake loop trail. The hike was jaw-dropping beautiful from start to finish, probably one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on with panoramic views at every turn. I would consider this hike moderate in terms of difficulty with a decent slow uphill climb on the way back. I had my hiking poles and was glad I did. There were a lot of rocky areas on the trail that could have been ankle twisters. It was about 4.6 miles round trip. I recommend bringing bug spray as we did encounter more bugs around the lake area that were quite annoying but not horrible. Highly recommend this hike See more..

  24. 4.5 North Cascades National Park Service Complex (8 reviews)
    - Very Spectacular Drive
    Visitor Centers
    When we went to drive the North Cascades Scenic Highway we didn't realized that ALL the Ranger Stations and Facilities were closed, which was disappointing. I was looking forward to stamping my National Parks Passport. The weather wasn't that great but we had some awesome trail hikes. The Trail of the Cedars was beautiful and calming. I was really happy to find a steam engine on display at Newhalem. I didn't realize it was a Seattle City Light Railway steam engine and that it was in very good display condition. I liked how pieces of the power plant were used as display items like the flower planter. The Diablo Lake overlook was spectacular, but a bit windy. Big white caps on the lake this trip! The Diablo Dam road looks like it could get real hard to get back and forth if there is a lot of traffic since it's a one way road. Happy Creek nature trail is also is a nice like jaunt. The weather turned so we were done with hiking for the day. it was a very nice drive into Winthrop. See more..

    Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau image
    We were visiting our son and his family in Oregon in the Columbia River Gorge and we were looking for other places to visit. We’re from Long Beach, MS and we wanted to visit, Long Beach, WA. So we went into the visitor center, used the clean bathrooms and perused the literature for places to visit. My son asked if there were any tide pools we could visit. We learned that if the tides were in negative numbers you would not see any “ treasures.” She explained that we could easily look it up on the computer and it would probably be October before the water would be deep enough.
