Flights to Washington – Washington State or DC?
Just to keep you on your toes, there are two Washingtons; Washington State and the US’s capital city Washington DC. For Washington DC take flights to Washington Dulles International Airport. For flights to Washington State head to Seattle where there are two international airports, alternatively Bellingham or Spokane.
Jimi Hendrix was born in Washington State, in Seattle. I never rated him much but then I’m a girl. I’m not really into great long tedious guitar solos and never responded very well to air guitar. But veteran crooner Bing Crosby was born in Tacoma - that’s more like it.
Washington Flights – Symbolic weirdness everywhere
Take flights to Washington state and you’ll find yourself surrounded by symbolic weirdness… Washington's state insect is the Dragonfly. And their state bird is the Willow Goldfinch. Fair enough so far. But then they go a bit mad. Their official dance is the square dance.
Their official fossil (!) is the Colombian Mammoth. Their official ship is the President Washington and they’ve even got an official tartan. All of which makes flights to Washington state an interesting if slightly bizarre holiday choice.
Flights to Washington – Home to Mount St Helens
Remember the big bang? Flights to Washington land you in the home of temperamental landmark Mount St. Helens, which blew over 1000 feet of its head off and scattered the dust all around the plant via the stratosphere. All in all, a cubic mile of rocks, dust, ash and rubbish. Wow. The blast flattened four billion feet’s worth of trees but not to worry, Mount St Helens isn’t due to go off again in the near future.
So your flights to Washington needn’t end in disaster. Unless you go to Wilbur, of course, where it is illegal to ride an ugly horse. Or to Spokane, where you’ll be thrown into jail of you so much as attempt to buy a TV on a Sunday.
