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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and Snoqualmie Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (in Issaquah), Kelsey Creek Park & Farm (in Bellevue) and Sequim (Sequim Bay Scenic Pullout, B&B Family Farm, & more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Chihuly Garden and Glass, wander the streets of Pike Place Market, enjoy breathtaking views from Sky View Observatory, and admire the majestic nature at Point Defiance Park.

To see photos, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Seattle travel route planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Seattle. In July, daily temperatures in Seattle can reach 79°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to fly to Friday Harbor.

Friday Harbor

The tiny town of Friday Harbor is the largest village on the San Juan Islands, and it fits within just 2.6 km (1 sq mi) of space.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Mon): relax in the rural setting at Pelindaba Lavender Farm, then don't miss a visit to English Camp, then see the interesting displays at The Whale Museum, and finally get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour. On your second day here, find something for the whole family at Zip San Juan and then admire the majestic nature at Spencer Spit State Park.

Make your Friday Harbor itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

You can fly from Seattle to Friday Harbor in an hour. Another option is to ride a ferry. In July, Friday Harbor is a bit cooler than Seattle - with highs of 74°F and lows of 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Wed) to allow enough time to fly back home.
