Emerald City

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Seattle: Tacoma (Tacoma Art Museum, Washington State History Museum, &more) and Olympic National Park (Mount Ellinor & Mount Walker). Dedicate the 16th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Chihuly Garden and Glass, walk around Discovery Park, admire the masterpieces at Seattle Art Museum, and examine the collection at The Museum of Flight.
