Flying in and out of Seattle is one of the most spectacular flying experiences in the US. A beautiful downtown skyline situated along the water, surrounded by islands, mountains, and volcanoes will leave you clamoring for more and praying for a sunny day on your flight out. Here are some of the highlights from the air that you should watch for on your next trip to Seattle.

Mount Rainier is the highest peak in Washington state towering over 14k feet.
On the clearest of days you will be fortunate to see (left to right) Mount Adams, Mount Rainier, and Mount Saint Helens... maybe even Mount Hood if lucky (which would be visible between Mount Adams and Mount Rainier from this angle).
The Olympic peninsula rises from Puget Sound off in the distance. Downtown the Columbia Tower is the second tallest building west of the Mississippi and the Space Needle stands tall on the north end of the city.
