We were weather fortunate on our day in the park. We arrived by 11:00 which led to an hour line wait as cars shuffle in and out. By the time you reach the visitor center you've been in the park for 13 miles of beautiful. We saw a number of deer. The visitor center has a tremendous amount of information for utilizing the park to your best benefit.See more..

She actually did Rosalie cosplay person in the past.See more..

Inside our FREE Mount St. Helens Forest Learning Center, you’ll feel like you’re walking through a forest moments before the eruption of Mount St. Helens.

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.

4.0Rick Steves' Europe(39 reviews) - A Perfect 10 :: Rick Steves' Best of Sicily in 11 Days Visitor Centers
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..
After departing the ferry, we decided to go exploring in the town. Just happened to pass by the Visitors Center and decided to stop in for information. We are glad we stopped because the gentleman at the desk told us so much about the area. When you are traveling and trying to see EVERYTHING, it's great to have a local's knowledge. Several restaurants were suggested and various routes to Olympic National Park were discussed with attractions described to us. Restrooms were very clean!!! Please stop here and be enlightened while on your travels!!!See more..

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 hikeSee more..

4.5North 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..

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.See more..

We went for a drive to see the daffodils, but we didn't see very many. We decided to visit La Conner and have lunch to think about this. After lunch we walked over the Chamber. The lady there was very helpful and explained (as we thought) were just too early this year because of all the snow in February. She had lots of maps for the upcoming tulip season and info on regional attractions. This is a real handy place on the main drag entering town.See more..
