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 Pioneer Square and Point No Point Lighthouse & Park. Chihuly Garden and Glass and The Museum of Flight will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium (in Tacoma), Olympic National Park (Mount Walker, Lake Cushman, & more) and Tolmie State Park (in Olympia). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Pike Place Market, kick back and relax at Alki Beach, stroll through Ed Munro Seahurst Park, and look for all kinds of wild species at Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery.
