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.
Get in touch with nature at Murhut Falls and Lake Wilderness Arboretum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Seattle: Bloedel Reserve (in Bainbridge Island), Chihuly Bridge of Glass (in Tacoma) and Hood Canal (in Olympic National Park). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Chihuly Garden and Glass, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Woodland Park Zoo, take in the waterfront at Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, and stroll through Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.
