While SeaTac Airport is by far the dominant airport with over 15 million enplanements per annum, this area offers some alternatives, even though they are very limited. However, for the tourist there is another airport available with a relatively good selection of major airlines, less crowds and close to the great tourist destinations of western Washington State: It is Oregon's Portland International Airport PDX, located just south of the Washington State border. To get to the Olympic National Park, head for State Hwy 26 to Astoria and cross the bridge into the Olympic Peninsula. Or head north on Route 503 to Mt.

Or simply cross the River and take Route 14 east along the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. For connections to the Olympic Peninsula you can choose between King County International and William Fairchild International--both fly to/from Port Angeles.
