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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hood Canal (in Olympic National Park), USS Turner Joy Museum Ship (in Bremerton) and Tacoma (Point Defiance Park, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, & more). Dedicate the 12th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: view the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, don't miss a visit to Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, take a stroll through Pike Place Market, and see the interesting displays at The Museum of Flight.

To find photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Seattle road trip tool .

Minneapolis to Seattle is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Minneapolis to Seattle. When traveling from Minneapolis in June, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Seattle: temperatures range from 74°F by day to 57°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Minneapolis.

Located on both banks of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis salutes the state's love of the outdoors with numerous lakes, wetlands, creeks, and waterfalls--many connected to one another by a national scenic byway great for sightseeing.
Venture out of the city with trips to Waconia Brewing Company (in Waconia), National Eagle Center (in Wabasha) and Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial (in Rochester). And it doesn't end there: get your game on at Extreme Sandbox, explore the world behind art at Minneapolis Institute of Art, take in nature's colorful creations at Millennium Garden, and enjoy some diversion at Target Field.
