Seattle

— 3 nights

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.
Shop till you drop at Pike Place Market and Starbucks Reserve Roastery Seattle. Step out of the city life by going to Snoqualmie Falls and Alki Beach. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Chihuly Garden and Glass, see the interesting displays at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center, enjoy breathtaking views from Space Needle, and take in nature's colorful creations at Washington Park Arboretum.

To find where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Seattle online trip maker.
