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.
Attractions like Space Needle and The Museum of Flight make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Seattle: Olympic National Park (Hood Canal & Murhut Falls). Dedicate the 22nd (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Pike Place Market, take a leisurely stroll along Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, get in on the family fun at Seattle Great Wheel, and admire all the interesting features of Safeco Field.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Seattle attractions planner.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Seattle. June in Seattle sees daily highs of 74°F and lows of 57°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel to Richmond.
