Seattle — 8 nights

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.
Explore hidden gems such as Roozengaarde Display Garden and Deception Pass State Park. Get outdoors at Washington Park Arboretum and Snoqualmie Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Fall City Wallaby Ranch (in Fall City), Point Defiance Park (in Tacoma) and Bainbridge Island (Battle Point Park & Bloedel Reserve). Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at Bruce Lee Grave Site, get a taste of the local shopping with Pike Place Market, cast your line with a fishing tour, and view the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass.

Columbus — 6 nights

More than just one of the nation's top business centers, Columbus is a mixture of many different parts of America, situated at the spot where the so-called "Bible Belt" meets the varied cultures of the Great Plains and Appalachia.
Get some historical perspective at Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum and Carillon Historical Park. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Conkles Hollow State Nature Preserve and Old Man's Cave. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Columbus: Cathedral Basilica of St. Peter in Chains (in Cincinnati), Dayton Dragons Baseball (in Dayton) and Logan (Cedar Falls Hiking Trail & Ash Cave). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through German Village, sample some tasty brews at Pedal Wagon Columbus, admire the landmark architecture of Ohio Statehouse, and view the masterpieces at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
