Seattle is the largest city in Washington State. It is surrounded by water, mountains and forest and boasts thousands of acres of parkland. It even has a volcano! It is well worth taking the time to explore outside the city limits. Seattle is known as the “Emerald City” because of its famous, lush evergreen forests. The beauty of this destination is a huge attraction in itself. However, Seattle has a lot to offer in culture and diversity as well. The Seattle Center, location of the 1962 World’s Fair, has become a premier destination for arts, entertainment and leisure activities of all sorts. Among many other attractions, this has become home to the ever famous Seattle Space Needle. You will find museums, musical attractions and Pike Place Market in Downtown Seattle.
