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.
Step out of the city life by going to Finnriver and Tolmie State Park. Let the collections at LeMay - America's Car Museum and Museum of Glass capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Seattle: Port Townsend (Fort Worden State Park & Northwest Maritime Center), Snoqualmie Falls (in Snoqualmie) and Bloedel Reserve (in Bainbridge Island). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Alki Beach, make a trip to Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, pause for some photo ops at Fremont Troll, and learn about winemaking at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery.
