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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Pike Place Market and The Museum of Flight. Take a break from the city and head to Alki Beach and Lower Big Quilcene Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Seattle side-trips: Olympic National Park (Mount Walker & Hood Canal). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, shop like a local with Glasshouse Studio, make a trip to Space Needle, and wander the streets of Pioneer Square.
