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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Alki Beach and Double Bluff Beach. Get outdoors at Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and Seahurst Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Tacoma (Owen Beach & 5 Mile Drive & Trails), Olympic National Park (Hood Canal, Mount Ellinor, & more) and Edmonds (Marina Beach Park, Picnic Point Park, & more). There's lots more to do: shop like a local with Chihuly Garden and Glass, tour the pleasant surroundings at Rosario Beach, kick back and relax at Madison Beach, and make a trip to Space Needle.

For ratings, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Seattle trip planner .

In August, daytime highs in Seattle are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 61°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
