From its coastal waterways, wild salmon streams and fresh oyster beds to its orchards, farms, vineyards, spirits distillers and breweries, Washington State provides a cornucopia of culinary delights and fine beverages served up in locales rich with personality and seasoned with good company and beautiful scenery. Whether it's unique local flavors or exotic international cuisines, Washington offers a diverse menu to delight the most discriminating gourmand or the more down-to-earth diner.
As a coastal state graced with agricultural abundance, it’s a place where fresh ingredients abound. As a major Pacific Rim seaport, it’s a place where the world’s cuisines cross-pollinate in all sorts of creative and delicious dishes. And as a no-nonsense northwestern state, it’s a place where you can still get a great cheeseburger — with or without grilled onions.

Or take a brewery tour and savor the flavors provided by both Washington farmers and brewmasters. Maybe it’s all those artesian wells and glacier-fed streams and rivers that help produce an amazing variety of microbrews on tap around the state.
Washington's craft spirits distillers have been growing in quality and variety in recent years, many of which are creating liqueurs, vodkas, gins, whiskeys and others that are crafted and infused with unique ingredients only grown in this region.
