    Seattle is often referred to as the Emerald City, due to the lush evergreen forests that surround it. Located about 160 kilometres from the Canadian border, Seattle is home to over 600,000 people and the fastest growing U.S. city in 2013. Settled between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, the city boasts a spectacular view of Mt. Rainier. Seattle has a strong cultural background and has been the source of many of well known, internationally successful bands. There are museums of all kinds and ample opportunities for outdoor activities. Tour the Pike Place Market, where hundreds of locals sell everything from comic books to fresh fish. Fishmongers will actually throw fish across the room to each other to save time! Sometimes they even allow willing customers to join in the line- sure to make a priceless holiday photo.

    Take a drive to Olympic National Park, World Heritage Site and home of the Hoh Rainforest. The park offers an amazing array of environments to explore, from sub-alpine meadows to temperate rainforests and glaciated mountains. There are a number of roads that grant visitors access to the exterior of the park. Once inside, there are plenty of hiking trails that offer even greater access to the inner portions of this national treasure. Also worth a visit is the town of Tacoma, Washington, just 40 minutes from Seattle. Tacoma is the home of famous glass artist, Dale Chihuly, and the city is filled with his remarkable works. Take the walking tour offered by the Tacoma Art Museum to learn about this influential artist and his rare talent. If you're carrying on from Seattle, head north to Vancouver or south to Portland- both just a few hours' drive away.
