The West Coast of the United States — California, Oregon and Washington, plus Alaska and Hawaii — offers a wide variety of outdoor experiences. All five states boast vast stretches of Pacific coastline, though each state offers features uniquely its own. Alaska has glaciers, Hawai’i has active volcanoes, Oregon has sand dunes, Washington has mountains and California has deserts.

You can enjoy the Pacific’s natural beauty all year-round. And there’s no shortage of impressive National Parks in the region, including Yosemite National Park in California, Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, Haleakala National Park in Hawaii, Olympic National Park in Washington and Denali National Park in Alaska.
