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.
Escape the urban bustle at Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve and Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. You'll explore and learn at Chihuly Garden and Glass and Seattle Art Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Point No Point Lighthouse & Park (in Hansville) and Hindu Temple & Cultural Center (in Bothell). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Pioneer Square, contemplate the long history of West Point Lighthouse, make a trip to Space Needle, and get a taste of the local shopping with Pike Place Market.
