Emerald City

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pioneer Square and King Street Station. Get some cultural insight at Chihuly Garden and Glass and Pike Place Market. Step out of Seattle with an excursion to Discover Nature in Mount Rainier National Park--about 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Flight, take a leisurely stroll along Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and don't miss a visit to Space Needle.

Bayou City

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Fri): admire the striking features of St Mary's Cathedral Basilica, then contemplate the long history of 1892 Bishop's Palace, then appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall, and finally don't miss a visit to Old City Cemetery.
