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 Snoqualmie Falls and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Let the collections at Chihuly Garden and Glass and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Seattle side-trips: Hurricane Ridge (in Olympic National Park), Bloedel Reserve (in Bainbridge Island) and Tacoma (LeMay - America's Car Museum, Owen Beach, &more). There's lots more to do: immerse yourself in nature at Fort Casey State Park, kick back and relax at Alki Beach, wander the streets of Pike Place Market, and look for all kinds of wild species at Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.
