Seattle is an experience, not just a destination.
Recently named one of America's favorite cities by Travel and Leisure and CNN Headline News, Seattle offers the best of both urban and outdoor experiences. Enjoy touring, shopping, lively cuisine, microbrews, fine Northwest wines and, of course, Seattle famouse coffee.
Many of the city's top attractions are within blocks of the waterfront, including the Space Needle, historic Pioneer Square, Pike Place Market and the Seattle Aquarium.
If it's the outdoors you crave, consider a day trip. Three national parks - Mt. Rainier, North Cascades and Olympics - are an easy drive from the city center. Discover the region's island communities, coastal beaches, dense rain forests and spectacular alpine peaks.
