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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bloedel Reserve and Snoqualmie Falls. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Point Defiance Park and Kerry Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Chihuly Bridge of Glass (in Tacoma) and Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge (in Olympia). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Pike Place Market, don't miss a visit to Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, admire the landmark architecture of Seattle Public Library, and admire the natural beauty at Washington Park Arboretum.

Take a break from the city and head to Crystal Cove and Dolphin & Whale Watching. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Santa Monica Bay and 26-Mile Bike Path. Get out of town with these interesting Los Angeles side-trips: Carpinteria State Beach (in Carpinteria), Laguna Beach (Main Beach, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, & more) and Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley). Pack the 14th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Newport Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at El Matador State Beach, explore the world behind art at Norton Simon Museum, and hike along San Clemente Coastal Trail.
