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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Fishing Charters & Tours and Bloedel Reserve. Relax by the water at Alki Beach and Seahurst Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Olympia (Hands On Children's Museum, Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, & more), Champion Arms (in Kent) and Snoqualmie Falls (in Snoqualmie). There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Washington Park Arboretum, explore and take pictures at Fort Worden State Park, observe the fascinating underwater world at Point Defiance Park, and shop like a local with Chihuly Garden and Glass.
