The last city in the US I have not been to but wanted to visit and close to 3 national parks, Seattle just got served. Each park was a one-day event although walking trails would have extended it out to be much more. Glacier National Park comes with several different biomes, from the Pacific Ocean to mountains. Driving the circumference of the park is an all-day event, 14 hours total it took me, my record so far for driving in one day. Of course, I had to wake up early and take four 20-minute naps that day. One interesting motor vehicle law in Washington State is that if there are more than four cars following you, you are driving too slow and need to pull over to let them pass. Signs everywhere remind drivers of this, a ticketable offense. Mount Rainier National Park has entrances from the North and South side but the one on the North side was closed in the Spring due to snow when I visited so I had to drive the circumference to the South side. Otherwise, this park is just the mountain, although it gets cold in the car on the way up even though the heat was on. North Cascades National Park is pretty straightforward where you can see glaciers on snowy mountains. I came in time for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, apparently one of the more famous ones in the US, and stayed with a friend. The scenery was pretty stunning, along with the Boeing factory and Space Needle which I highly recommend. Famous for its tech industry (Amazon, Boeing, etc), the city itself rains maybe 2/3 of the time and feels too depressing to live in but nice to visit. Also, that week was restaurant week, which drained my funds quite a bit.
