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.

There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Chihuly Garden and Glass, wander the streets of Pike Place Market, tour the pleasant surroundings at Alki Beach, and find something for the whole family at Seattle Great Wheel.
