And I'm totally recommending both : Sunrise is the highest point that can be reached by vehicle at Mount Rainier National Park. On clear summer days, Sunrise provides breathtaking views of Mount Rain. Paradise is famous for its glorious views and wildflower meadows. and it is the park's main visitor center.
