Mount Rainier attracts about 2 million tourists annually. It is Washington’s highest peak and the 5th tallest in the lower 48 states. Standing tall at 14,410 feet (4,392.2 meters), it stands out in the state of Washington. The beautiful flora, amazing wildlife and mountain scenery, challenging hiking trails, and the fact it’s an active volcano can excite any mountaineer. Though the last minor eruption was in the 1800s, it’s possible that one long-overdue major eruption can melt 26 glaciers on the mountain, including the ones in the lower states. But until then, enjoy its lovely mountain scenery as well as its cool creeks and waterways converging in its terrain, which make it one of the favorite spots of outdoor enthusiasts. Have a tranquil holiday by booking one of the top Airbnb vacation rentals near Mount Rainier, Washington.
