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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Pike Place Market and Chihuly Garden and Glass. Visiting Mount Ellinor and Hiram M. Chittenden Locks will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Seattle: Mount Walker (in Olympic National Park), St. Paul's Church (in Port Gamble) and Lewis Army Museum (in Dupont). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Flight, identify plant and animal life at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, enjoy the sand and surf at Alki Beach, and make a trip to Space Needle.
