Sights to See: Northwest United States

Many times a drivers 34 hour reset period will happen when they are away from home, and though many choose to rest and relax, there are also many who venture into their current destination to sightsee. We want to make it easier to plan for these resets by sharing some sightseeing opportunities, but let’s face it there are thousands of places to go and just as many landmarks so we had to narrow it down to just the best of each region.
