Seattle is one of the greenest cities in the country, and this is reflected with the biodiesel tour vans used by outdoorsy Evergreen Escapes Eco Tours. Recycling has been de rigueur in Seattle since the early 1990s; Hotel 1000 and the popular REI Seattle Flagship store noticeably sport solar panels and composting facilities.Recommended for:

While in Seattle be sure to take the Ferry to the islands. You can spend the day going on and off the ferry at the different ports and exploring the colorful port towns. If you take a car on there are some locations that you can drive from one end of the island to another ferry location and cross to another town. My favorite is to cross to Port Townsend which is really a cool town with lots of old buildings and great shops and restaurants. Also lots of island deer wandering about town in yards and on the hillsides. Being on the water in Seattle on a sunny day is the very best place to be. The Seattle arboretum also has kayaks you can rent which is a great way to spend the day!

The surrounding area of Seattle is fairly nice. The only thing that really stinks is the traffic. It can get really bad. However, with the scenic mountains and abundance of pine tree forests, the natural scenery surrounding Seattle makes the area worth a visit.
