The Top State And Territory Tourist Locations: W

Updated on January 29, 2015

Every area has a prime tourist location. Do you know what the top tourist site is in your State or Territory?

The Frog has decided to go alphabetically through the States and Territories answering what the top tourist site is in each one. Several sources will be used. You may not agree with your area's pick. Use the comments section and tell us what you think it is.

You can see the first seven hubs in this series at these links:








The goal is to give people ideas on something they can do with their family or alone. If you really consider all, you really do not have to travel very far to have a great vacation.

In most circumstances, I will attempt to link the site's website. I will also search for pictures if possible.

Ok, let's see what the top tourist sites are



The beauty of the State of Washington would make a person think that one of the many National Parks would be the top tourist destination. This is not so.

The top choice for visitors to the State of Washington is in the middle of Seattle. It is the Seattle Center. Known for the Space Needle(pictured), this 74 acre park has an arts and entertainment center and many other amenities.

If you are planning a Washington State vacation, you may want to put a visit to the Seattle Center down as a priority.

I am wondering if my friend from Washington, billybuc, agrees.

West Virginia

West Virginia offers many tourist opportunities. The top tourist location in this wonderful State is Snowshoe Mountain. It may seem like it is only a winter time vacation spot, but there is things to do year round at Snowshoe. Some of the activities that go on at Snowshoe Mountain are:

  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding
  • Golf
  • Water park
  • Biking
  • Hiking
  • Camping
  • Off-road fun
  • Segways
  • Much, much more

A great vacation idea is Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia.


One of my favorite States. Wisconsin is where Harley Davidson Motorcycles are manufactured. The Harley plant in Milwaukee is not the top tourist destination though.

The top spot for tourists to Wisconsin is the Wisconsin Dells.

The Wisconsin Dells has one of the best water parks in the United States. There is camping, food and fun, fun, and more fun.

If you are planning a trip to Wisconsin, make the Wisconsin Dells a part of that trip. You will be happy you did.

Well, we are here at the last State or territory, Wyoming. Hmmmm, what would the top site be in Wyoming?

Have you figured it out yet?

It is Yellowstone National Park.

This is where you will see Old Faithful. An amazing geyser. Mammoth Hot Springs and all kinds of wildlife will be right there for your pleasure.

If you have never been to Yellowstone, now is the time. Visit Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park.


Well this is the last one on this series of hubs. Please share them with friends and family you know are looking for a vacation spot.

Thanks for reading these hubs.

Have a great day.

      Yes, it amazed me too.With all that beauty there, why a man-made structure?

      It's interesting that the Seattle Center is the #1 attraction; in Seattle I would have guessed the Pikes Place Market....oh well, shows how much I know about my home state. :)

      Ohh I thought I had seen seen this hub...sorry. Perhaps I read it from your computer. I would like to visit Washington from this list. Another thing we might do is first to Wisconsin to get a Harley three wheel, then we visit the rest 50. Puerto Rico will not be 51.
