Seattle
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.
Appreciate the collections at Chihuly Garden and Glass and Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Bloedel Reserve and The Museum of Flight. Change things up with these side-trips from Seattle: Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (in Issaquah) and Point No Point Lighthouse (in Hansville). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Pike Place Market, find something for the whole family at Seattle Great Wheel, enjoy the sand and surf at Alki Beach, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Seattle Aquarium.

To find photos, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Seattle road trip planning website .

Traveling by train from Mount Rainier National Park to Seattle takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a shuttle. In December, plan for daily highs up to 47°F, and evening lows to 38°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
