3) Seattle, Washington
Much can be said about one of America’s most unique cities, located on the Puget Sound in northwest Washington State. Surrounded by mountains and forests, Seattle has thousands of acres of parks and natural areas, and two large lakes within the city itself. Home to the famed Space Needle from the 1962 World’s Fair, museums, science centers and the extraordinary Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle literally has something for everyone. The famous waterfront is a marvelous place for a walk on the shore. Equally attractive is a visit to Pike’s Place Market, one of the world’s most famous open markets. Of special interest, would be a visit to Chiluly Garden and Glass to see the world-class glass creations of artist Dale Chiluly. Or, an afternoon walk in the pleasant Queen Anne residential area with a stop at a vantage point that overlooks downtown Seattle and the Space Needle, with the magnificent Mt. Rainier in the background. For nature, culture and commerce, Seattle is a destination spot to be remembered.
