This is a fun guide to many fun tourist attractions throughout Washington State, such as the milk bottle-shaped buildings in Spokane, the apple sorting machine at the NCW museum in Wenatchee, and the many sites to visit in Seattle and surrounding King County. There are also included several private collectors who open their homes by appointment to show you their various collections of objects. Take this book with you on your next vacation in the state.

Very good information and histories of places and curious sites and oddities in Washington state. I even learned more about places I had already visited. The historical information is well-written and excellent.

A travel guide of sorts to funny, quirky, unbelievable, "Oh my God, I gotta see that" sites in Washington (the state).

So many offbeat and interesting things to explore in the state of Washington! This book gives more options than standard travel guides and will make traveling the state a little more fun.
