Get out of town with these interesting Seattle side-trips: Olympic National Park (Mount Walker & Hood Canal), Tacoma (Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium & Chihuly Bridge of Glass) and Snoqualmie Falls (in Snoqualmie). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Pike Place Market, enjoy breathtaking views from Space Needle, identify plant and animal life at Bloedel Reserve, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Seattle Aquarium.
