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.
Let the collections at Chihuly Garden and Glass and Glasshouse Studio capture your imagination. Popular historic sites such as Pioneer Square and King Street Station are in your itinerary. Explore Seattle's surroundings by going to Tacoma (Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, 5 Mile Drive & Trails, & more) and Olympic National Park (Mount Ellinor, Lower Big Quilcene Trail, & more). Dedicate the 5th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: take in panoramic vistas at Space Needle, admire all the interesting features of Safeco Field, explore the activities along Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, and appreciate the history behind Fremont Troll.
