From the cosmopolitan cities to the Great Outdoors, this updated edition covers all the bases
This region has outgrown its grunge rock image to become a destination of choice for travelers looking for diverse experiences. The US states of Oregon and Washington and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and the Yukon, contain some of North America's great cities -- Seattle and Vancouver for a start -- as well as some of the greatest wild places on earth. Whether you're trekking the scorched landscape of Mount St. Helens, exploring the fabulous Olympic and Mount Ranier National Parks, or enjoying a coffee in one of Portland's famous coffee houses, this Rough Guide offers expert guidance.
This guide includes tips on skiing, whale-watching, camping, hiking, snowboarding, fishing and kayaking. Coverage includes the streets of Vancouver, Portland and Seattle, to the peaks of the Canadian Rockies and the ocean islands of the Inside Passage. New maps include one for Whistler.
