Davis, CA

Davis! This was the city that I went to University and had an amazing 3 years studying mathematics. While in town I got to go to THE BEST sandwich shop on the planet, Zia’s Delicatessen. It was super phenomenal and

Sacramento, CA

Rounding off my capitol tours was California! California is my home state so I’ve definitely been to this capitol a few times, but it’s always a hoot to visit it again. It’s not the most glamorous capitol out there, but

Carson City, NV

Carson city is home to Nevada’s state capitol. The city itself isn’t to outrageously amazing, but it’s fun to walk down the main street and see everything around town. The state capitol was practically desserted. Apparently the capitol itself doesn’t

Multnomah Falls, OR

On the way to Portland from Goldendale I had heard there was a series of gorgeous falls. I decided to take a risk and took a detour to check out these falls and I’m super glad I did. The falls

Goldendale, WA

Goldendale is the place for one of the best amateur observatories I’ve ever seen! I got to hang out there with a bunch of random people and see so many things I’ll likely never forget. We got to look through

Olympia, WA

The Washington State Capitol was fairly grand. Almost every chandelier was done by Tiffany which is super cool. The main chandelier in the rotunda is so big you could apparently fit a volkswagen beetle inside it! One of my favorite

Seattle, WA

So the first thing I did when I got into Seattle was to go to the Space needle. It costs $20 to go to the top or you can do lunch for $25 and get a free pass to the
