This month’s Memorable City takes us to the great northwest and the city of Seattle, Washington. Seattle, more commonly known to the locals as The Emerald City, is a city woven together by many neighborhoods. Most visitors view Seattle as an urban, outdoorsy, artsy city, where rain is a usual nuisance to be dealt with. It rains between 150 and 200 days a year, but because of this, the city offers plenty of things to do inside.
It's difficult to think of Seattle as anything but natural. After all, the city owes much of its appeal to its natural features—the numerous hills offer views of mountain ranges and plenty of water. Outside of the downtown area and other smaller commercial cores, Seattle's neighborhoods fan out in a web of tree-lined streets. Immense parks like the Washington Park Arboretum, Discovery and Magnuson parks make Seattle one of the greenest cities in the country.
Taking a stroll, browsing a bookstore, or enjoying a cup of one of Seattle’s numerous coffee brands can feel different in every one of Seattle's neighborhoods. It's the adventure of exploring that will truly introduce you to the charisma of Seattle.

What Do Our Clients Say?
I have been working with TravelPlex for many years and I must say it has been a refreshing experience. Our travel needs often require instantaneous service, and they are always there for us. TravelPlex offers us great personal service, great pricing and a 24/7 hotline. To me, THAT equals a hat trick!

We’ve been with TravelPlex for over 20 years. The lone exception is when we left them for (a mega travel agency). It took us about a year before we realized that the personal service and attention that the TravelPlex staff just wasn’t there with (the mega agency). Neither was the savings (the mega agency) promised. We were so low on the totem pole that we were lucky if we ever had anyone contact us. But at TravelPlex, the staff always goes above and beyond to make sure we get the best prices and that our travelers are always taken care of. TravelPlex makes all our travelers feel like VIP’s, and that’s important – and rare!
Carrie Willard is the reason I keep coming back to Travelplex. She is "WONDERFUL". She is always so helpful and goes the extra step to make sure everything is satisfactory and done the way the customer wants it. She always has a smile on her face, which is even apparent over the phone. I have entrusted our vacations with Carrie now for 3yrs and could never imagine using anyone else to help us plan our trips. I have referred at least 5 of my friends to her, and they all have had nothing but glowing remarks about Carrie. She is an asset to your company and exemplifies the true meaning of "CUSTOMER SERVICE".
With the announcement by President Trump on March 11th banning travel to/from Europe starting March 13th (Friday) starting at 11:59pm, TravelPlex has already been reaching out to our clients who are affected by this announcement.
