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.
Family-friendly places like Space Needle and The Museum of Flight will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Sequim (Sequim Bay Scenic Pullout & B&B Family Farm) and Tacoma (Museum of Glass & Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Pike Place Market, take a leisurely stroll along Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, get in on the family fun at Seattle Great Wheel, and get to know the resident critters at Woodland Park Zoo.
