Seattle Washington

Any visit to the Pacific Northwest wouldn't be complete without taking in Seattle, Washington on your vacation. Also called the Emerald City, Seattle, Washington lives up to its name with the lush evergreen trees, mountains and water that surround the city. There are spectacular views. Mt. Rainier towers above, even from 200 miles away. Since it is so close to the Canadian border, it is just a hop, skip and a jump to Vancouver. Read More
