Seattle is gorgeous. The jewels of the "Emerald City" are undoubtedly its evergreens, which seem to decorate every open space. Beyond the foliage, the blue waters of Puget Sound are a joy to behold from your Seattle flight, which eventually lands at Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA). The city is an outdoor lover's paradise, starting with the waterways that invite kayaking or sailing. For land-bound adventures, hike or bike the 18.8-mile length of the Burke-Gilman Trail for paths through maples, firs, lakefronts, and parks. Take a break from the trees by visiting the Seattle Art Museum, watching the Seattle Opera, or listening to live music at local pubs. Many Seattle vacation packages include access to these attractions.
