Seattle — 3 nights

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, sightseeing, and parks. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: wander the streets of Pike Place Market, enjoy the sand and surf at Alki Beach, stroll through Discovery Park, and take in the exciting artwork at Chihuly Garden and Glass.

To find more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Seattle trip itinerary planner.

Honolulu to Seattle is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Honolulu to Seattle due to the time zone difference.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to fly to Portland.
