Seattle is nicknamed the “Emerald City”, and it’s easy to see why – at every turn you’ll find lush, evergreen trees amid the city’s steely skyscrapers. Sightseeing here can take you to sandy beaches or snowcapped mountains; to historical cultural sites or dramatic modern day art venues, such as the Seattle Art Museum.

    Don’t miss a trip to historic Pike Place Market, where stalls are piled high with colorful fruits, pungent cheeses, and freshly sliced meats. For 360 degree views, zoom up to the Space Needle’s observation deck and see Elliott Bay’s bustling waterfront, Downtown’s dazzling lights, and tree-covered Mt Rainier.
