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.
Get some historical perspective at Bruce Lee Grave Site and West Point Lighthouse. Get some cultural insight at LeMay - America's Car Museum and Pike Place Market. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Seattle: Tacoma (Chihuly Bridge of Glass, Museum of Glass, & more), Olympic National Park (Lower Big Quilcene Trail, Hood Canal, & more) and Olympia (Washington State Capitol, Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, & more). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Snoqualmie Falls, enjoy the sand and surf at Alki Beach, admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, and see the interesting displays at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Seattle trip itinerary website .
