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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pike Place Market and Chihuly Garden and Glass. Step off the beaten path and head to Hurricane Ridge and Brackett's Landing South. Get out of town with these interesting Seattle side-trips: Picnic Point Park (in Edmonds) and Snoqualmie Falls (in Snoqualmie). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Alki Beach, admire the striking features of Sky View Observatory, take in panoramic vistas at Space Needle, and stroll around Golden Gardens Park.
