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.
Family-friendly places like Pike Place Market and Space Needle will thrill your kids. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Flight, find something for the whole family at Seattle Great Wheel, admire the natural beauty at Bellevue Botanical Garden, and admire the masterpieces at Seattle Art Museum.

Plan a trip to Seattle easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
