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 Alki Beach. Appreciate the collections at Chihuly Garden and Glass and The Museum of Flight. Step out of Seattle with an excursion to Seahurst Beach Park in Burien--about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Pike Place Market, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Seattle Aquarium, admire the masterpieces at Seattle Art Museum, and get in on the family fun at Seattle Great Wheel.
