Shopping too abounds, from small designer boutiques to the modern malls of Pacific Place. Explore Pike Place Market, relax at a street-side cafe or stroll the waterfront.

    Cruise north through Pugent Sound and discover a water world of tiny islands. The San Juan Islands, the largest collection, are accessible only by boat or floatplane and provide a gentle retreat away from reality.

    The Cascade Mountains loom above the Seattle skyline drawing hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. Ski the volcanic slopes of Mount Baker, drive the scenic Cascade Loop tour or simply sit back and enjoy the view.
