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.
Step out of the city life by going to Tolmie State Park and Picnic Point Park. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Seahurst Beach Park and Meadowdale Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Dungeness River Audubon Center (in Sequim), Edmonds (Marina Beach Park & Brackett's Landing South) and Tacoma (LeMay - America's Car Museum, Owen Beach, & more). There's lots more to do: admire the sheer force of Snoqualmie Falls, kick back and relax at Alki Beach, stroll through Kerry Park, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hiram M. Chittenden Locks.
