Flights to Seattle
Discover the Emerald City
Seattle is a big city, sure — but in many ways, it also feels like an escape into nature. This Pacific Northwest locale overlooks the clear blue waters of Puget Sound, and the snow-capped silhouette of Mt. Rainier (the tallest peak in the Cascade Range, and an active volcano at that) is an ever-present figure in the distance. Beyond city limits, you’re also within skipping distance of Olympic National Park’s rugged coastlines, Washington State’s award-winning vineyards, and millions of acres of protected, old-growth forests. But once you’ve had your fill of fresh air, don’t forget that Seattle is also a thrilling cultural (and counter-cultural) centre. This is the city that birthed Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and riot grrrl act Bikini Kill after all, and today its quirk is also expressed through third-wave coffee shops filled with laptop warriors, creative crowds in Fremont and Ballard, and eclectic neighbourhood restaurants. Once you book your flights to Seattle, pack your hiking boots, but don’t forget your Doc Martens, too: this city offers the best of both worlds.
