You've booked your ticket and packed your suitcase, but how much do you know about your next unforgettable vacation destination? Sit back and let us guide you through Seattle.
Seattle sits 120 miles (193 kilometers) south of Vancouver, a prominent city.
Eager to mix with the locals? That shouldn't be too difficult. 600,000 people call this corner of Puget Sound home.
So much to do and so little time. If you want to experience the best of this city, add the Woodland Park Zoo and the Museum of Pop Culture to your travel itinerary. If you have an extra day to spare, try to get to Seattle Center and the Washington State Convention Center too.
Those fearful of heights may want to avert their gaze, but anyone who's interested in skyscrapers shouldn't miss Columbia Center. Almost piercing the clouds, it's a glorious fixture of the city's skyline. Seeking some more options? Theater can challenge our thinking and asks us to aspire to greater things. Catch a play at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall and open your mind to some big ideas. And there's more. Rainy days are a brilliant opportunity to lose yourself in a book in peaceful surrounds. If it looks as though it's going to teem down, why not hightail it over to Seattle Public Library and see what novel piques your interest?
