Seattle invites you to explore two cities in one. Here youÕll find a vibrant, sophisticated metropolis surrounded by pristine natural beauty and abundant recreation. Seattle is "metronatural". Downtown Seattle is easily walkable and waiting to be explored. Shopping, dining, arts and visitor attractions are within steps of hotels and inns. The city is surrounded by pristine waterways, two mountain ranges and three national parks. To the west lies the only temperate rain forest in the continental U.S. To the east, a world-class wine region. Whether metro or natural, you can pack a lot into your Seattle itinerary.
