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 Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Tolmie State Park (in Olympia), Bloedel Reserve (in Bainbridge Island) and Chihuly Bridge of Glass (in Tacoma). Dedicate the 12th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Chihuly Garden and Glass, enjoy breathtaking views from Space Needle, kick back and relax at Alki Beach, and identify plant and animal life at Mercer Slough Nature Park.
