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.
Dedicate the 21st (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, see the interesting displays at The Museum of Flight, tour the pleasant surroundings at Alki Beach, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Seattle Aquarium.

To find traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Seattle tour itinerary site .
