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.
Seattle is known for museums, parks, and wineries. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass, stop by Elliott Bay Book Company, see the interesting displays at The Museum of Flight, and take a stroll through Pike Place Market.

The Evergreen State
A state with two distinct faces, Washington features a landscape split apart by the Cascade Mountains, separating the damp forested areas to the west from the irrigated farmland to the east. Named after the country's first president, Washington is the second most populous state in the western United States. Nearly 60 percent of its population lives in the Seattle metropolitan area, one of the state's most popular holiday destinations. A land of over 1,000 dams, Washington is a leading producer of products as diverse as wine, lumber, apples, hops, pears, and potatoes. A big contributor to the nation's manufacturing industries, the state also boasts a cosmopolitan culture with plenty of sightseeing opportunities and a selection of small cafes, bars, and restaurants.
