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.
Seattle is known for museums, parks, zoos & aquariums, nightlife, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the exciting artwork at Chihuly Garden and Glass, take in the waterfront at Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, explore the world behind art at Seattle Art Museum, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Woodland Park Zoo.
