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.
Let the collections at Chihuly Garden and Glass and The Museum of Flight capture your imagination. Bring the kids along to Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and Woodland Park Zoo. When in Seattle, make a side trip to see Snoqualmie Falls in Snoqualmie, approximately 58 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Pike Place Market, walk around Kerry Park, make a trip to Space Needle, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Seattle Aquarium.

A big city with a small-town feel, Portland is home to the country's biggest rose test garden, perched on a hill overlooking downtown.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Horsetail Falls- Columbia River Gorge and Mount St. Helens Visitor Center. Family-friendly places like Washington Park and Powell's City of Books will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Vista House (in Corbett), Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum (in Hood River) and Cascade Locks (Oneonta Gorge & Starvation Creek State Park). And it doesn't end there: admire all the interesting features of The Grotto - National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother, steep yourself in history at Columbia River Highway, take in the exciting artwork at Live Laugh Love Art, and see the interesting displays at Freakybuttrue Peculiarium.
