Need to Know Info

Entering the US

Money, Measurements & Time Zone

  • The US uses a combination of paper currency and coins. Learn about denominations and your currency conversion before preparing to shop your heart out on the Cascade Loop.
  • Just for fun, we like to make measuring things as complicated as we can around here. We use miles, not kilometers. Inches, feet and yards instead of the metric system, and our temperature is measured in Fahrenheit, not Celsius. Enjoy!
  • The Cascade Loop is located in the Pacific Standard Time Zone (PST). This is good to know when making reservations and checking in after crossing a multitude of time zones.

Accessing the Cascade Loop

  • Sea-Tac International Airport offers a fast-growing number of direct flights to and from all over the world. It's a perfect jumping off point to Seattle and The Cascade Loop. Rent your car and hit the road for The Great American Road Trip! Get all manner of info on our Fly-Drive and Getting Around pages.
  • Check out the Practical Information from necessary permits and passes for trail and park access, to current roadway conditions.


Looking for a serious dose of American culture? Then you might think about adding a little camping to your trip! Don't worry if you don't have camping gear and don't want to spend a ton of money buying and flying all of your gear over. Just stop in to Seattle and pick up everything you need/want in organized inclusive camping kit rentals courtesy of Peace Vans Outfitters!
