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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Pioneer Square and The Museum of Flight. You'll explore and learn at Chihuly Garden and Glass and Seattle Art Museum. Step out of Seattle to go to Snoqualmie and see Snoqualmie Falls, which is approximately 42 minutes away. The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Pike Place Market, look for all kinds of wild species at Mercer Slough Nature Park, take in the exciting artwork at Glasshouse Studio, and stroll through Alki Beach.
