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 in touch with nature at Olympic Peninsula and Theler Wetlands Belfair Nature Preserve. Discover out-of-the-way places like Bloedel Reserve and Dungeness River Audubon Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Tahoma National Cemetery (in Kent), Snoqualmie Falls (in Snoqualmie) and Black Diamond Museum (in Black Diamond). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, see the interesting displays at LeMay - America's Car Museum, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Point Defiance Park, and step off the mainland to explore Picnic Point Park.
