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.
Step out of the city life by going to Tolmie State Park and Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square. Explore Seattle's surroundings by going to Tacoma (Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium & 5 Mile Drive & Trails), Bloedel Reserve (in Bainbridge Island) and Mount Walker (in Olympic National Park). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Alki Beach, admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, identify plant and animal life at Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Woodland Park Zoo.

To see traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Seattle day trip site .

In January, plan for daily highs up to 47°F, and evening lows to 37°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
