Emerald City

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 find plenty of places to visit near Seattle: Olympic National Park (Hood Canal & Murhut Falls). Dedicate the 18th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, contemplate the waterfront views at Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, pick up some local products at Pike Place Market, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Seattle Aquarium.

To see reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Seattle trip planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Seattle. In September, plan for daily highs up to 72°F, and evening lows to 56°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) so you can catch the shuttle to Mount Rainier National Park.
