The lakes, mountains, and forests in the Pacific Northwest don’t just make it a beautiful place to live, they also encourage Washingtonians to spend an average of 56 days per year engaged in outdoor activities.
This directly leads to:
- $26.6 billion in annual spending in the state’s outdoor recreation industry
- 201,000 direct jobs
