Washington is filled to the brim with natural wonders of every size and shape, but there’s no denying that our gorgeous, cascading waterfalls are just one of the highlights of our state. Fortunately, we have plenty of them! In fact, there are around 2,000-3,000 waterfalls in Washington. Now obviously, a good portion of these will require a hefty hike to reach — but not the picture-perfect Snoqualmie Falls, one of our state’s most spectacular natural wonders. Best yet, reaching the Snoqualmie viewing area requires no real effort at all and is accessible for nearly everyone.

This iconic waterfall in Washington might just be one of the most photographed spots in the state. But we can say with certainty that Snoqualmie Falls is even more beautiful in person! And if you get hungry, you can always enjoy views of it from The Dining Room at the Salish Lodge & Spa.
