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.
Seattle is known for museums, parks, zoos & aquariums, nightlife, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get a taste of the local shopping with Chihuly Garden and Glass, find something for the whole family at Seattle Great Wheel, stroll around Waterfall Garden Park, and wander the streets of Pike Place Market.

To see more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Seattle visit planning website .

Rancho Cordova to Seattle is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive. When traveling from Rancho Cordova in July, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Seattle: temperatures range from 79°F by day to 60°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 6th (Sat) to allow enough time to take a train to Mount Rainier National Park.
