Seattle

Nicknamed the "Emerald City" because of its abundant evergreen trees, Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a popular holiday destination.
Appreciate the collections at Chihuly Garden and Glass and The Museum of Flight. Get some cultural insight at Pike Place Market and Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Rattlesnake Lake Recreation Area (in North Bend), Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (in Issaquah) and Bloedel Reserve (in Bainbridge Island). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Mercer Slough Nature Park, take in panoramic vistas at Space Needle, take a leisurely stroll along Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, and explore the world behind art at Seattle Art Museum.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Seattle trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Seattle Tacoma International Airport, Boeing Field King County International Airport and William R Fairchild International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in October, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
