University of Washington School of Law

Washington, the evergreen state with more than fifty percent forest cover, is a region that attracts with diverse landscapes. Here, visitors can roam through a temperate rain forest in one day, hike through high volcanic mountains and explore semi-deserts and green, agricultural valleys and river landscapes. This picture is rounded off positively by metropolitan regions such as Seattle and Tacoma.

Washington in the far northwest of the United States

The state of Washington should not be confused with the capital Washington DC, because it is not on the east coast, but on the west coast, more precisely, on the Pacific coast in the far northwest. Washington borders the Canadian province of British Columbia in the north, Oregon and Idaho in the south and east. This state was named after the first President of the United States, George Washington, who is still venerated today.

Washington State: facts

  • Area: 184,665 sq km
  • Population: 6,724,540
  • Abbreviation: WA
  • Capital: Olympia
  • Local time: UTC -8
  • Nickname: Evergreen State

Evergreen State

Because of the numerous conifers and large forests, Washington is nicknamed "Evergreen State", the evergreen state. In the size ranking of all states, this part of the country ranks 19th. With a population of just over 6.7 million people, on the other hand, it ranks 13th. Washington is largely rural, but the quality of life is comparatively high.

This area is a popular destination for tourists, because there are numerous opportunities to spend an active vacation with hiking, fishing, cycling, canoeing and boating, climbing and diving. On the other hand, if you want to be God a good man and just laze around a bit, you can spend relaxing days on the beach.

The Pacific coast is known for its special beaches and wonderful sunrises and sunsets. The diverse flora and fauna can be explored excellently in the three national parks.

The history and economy of the evergreen state

In 1889, this area was named after the first President of the United States, George Washington, and was admitted to the State Union as the 42nd state. This admission to the United States of America took place 100 years after the founding of the same state union. At that time Olympia was determined as the capital and the various counties were founded as administrative units.

However, Washington did not spoil itself with dealing with the indigenous peoples, because most Indians were forced into reservations against their will and wars were waged against those who did not submit to the will of the white majority. In this way, the regional government sparked several wars. However, Washington is not alone in this tradition of Indian wars.

In addition to the gold boom, another natural branch flourished here, the wood industry. However, both raw materials were always available in limited quantities and this area in Washington soon reached its limits. People focused on other ways of making a living and were spread across the country, including previously less popular parts.

As early as the mid-19th century, with the advent of the industrial age and the railroad, Seattle became the most important city in this state. Seattle is right on the Pacific coast, as is much of the rest of the state. Due to its geographical location and proximity to the Pacific and the Pacific states, Washington benefited from the political and economic development in this region, in which there were numerous other armed and political conflicts in addition to the two world wars. In this regard, Washington gained strategic importance for the fleet and air force.

An important armaments industry and a nuclear power plant emerged around this development. Information technology also discovered this northwestern state on the Pacific for itself. Due to the diverse landscape, the tourism industry developed on its own.

Important industries are aluminum and copper extraction, the wood and paper industry, mechanical engineering and shipbuilding, the chemical industry, a core test center, hydroelectric power generation, as well as salmon fishing and salmon farming. Agricultural use is also successful.

The secret capital of Seattle

Seattle is one of the most important international seaports in the USA, because it is from here that cruise ships to Alaska and the Pacific states such as Hawaii depart. At the same time, this city is a direct sea connection to the Asian economy. An international airport completes this picture. The hallmark of this city is its international and young orientation. Not only students come and go at Starbucks, young families also like to settle here.

The atmosphere of the city is cosmopolitan, racism is hardly an issue. A well-positioned range of restaurants and chic cafés inspires residents and visitors. A famous son of the city is the musician Jimi Hendrix, who died in 1970 and whose grave is still a pilgrimage site for numerous fans.

The honor of the capital is due to the much smaller and more tranquil Olympia, in which just 46,000 residents have found their home. For U.S. standards, it is almost a village, or at least a small town. However, this small town has an exceptional inner city center, which is perceived as a historical monument.

A high-quality gastronomy scene attracts many people, especially the oyster farming is considered here. The range of culinary delicacies from the sea is correspondingly large and varied.
