Seattle: Big City In A Forest

Seattle may be a big and busy city, but it looks as if it plucked up and deposited in the middle of a beautiful green forest. This city is famous for its frequent rain, and it's easy to see what all that moisture does for the trees: These forests are so green and lush that hardly seem real. Cultural activities are everywhere, and the city has an intellectual bent. Visit the Space Needle for amazing views of the mountains and forests. Consider one of the Savor Seattle tours to try some of the fresh local foods and wines, led by a helpful guide. The Seattle Museum of Flight offers an extensive history of aviation, complete with planes such as the very rare prototype of the 747."
