Seattle

— 3 nights

Emerald City

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.
Change things up with a short trip to ILovekickboxing in Kirkland (about 40 minutes away). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, stroll around Volunteer Park Conservatory, tour the pleasant surroundings at Discovery Park, and appreciate the history behind Fremont Troll.

For photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Seattle trip planner.

Salt Lake City to Seattle is an approximately 13.5-hour car ride. You can also fly; or drive; or take a bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Salt Lake City to Seattle due to the time zone difference. In April, plan for daily highs up to 61°F, and evening lows to 46°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Portland.
