If you’re trying to decide where to be buried in Washington, it may come down to proximity to family or personal taste of appearance. But there are great options available. East Wenatchee is a town surrounded by orchards that produce apples, cherries, pears, apricots, peaches, and plums, to name a few. And its Evergreen Memorial Park is aptly named, as this Washington state cemetery is located amid one of the largest independent stands of evergreen trees.
Tacoma, on the other hand, is home to the Museum of Glass, 31 miles northeast of the capital city of Olympia and 58 miles northwest of Mount Rainer National Park. Tacoma's Oakwood Hills Cemetery is also known for its green landscape.
