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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Chihuly Garden and Glass and Pike Place Market. Get some historical perspective at Pioneer Square and Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve. Explore Seattle's surroundings by going to 5 Mile Drive & Trails (in Tacoma), Clear Creek Trail (in Silverdale) and Olympic National Park (Mount Ellinor, Mount Walker, & more). There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, kick back and relax at Alki Beach, examine the collection at The Museum of Flight, and stroll the grounds of Bruce Lee Grave Site.
