The Seattle Waterfront area is a great way to kick off your trip as it provides a lively collection of entertainment, shopping and wonderful dining options. In here you may catch a ferry ride across the Puget Sound and perhaps enjoy a dinner cruise on the water. Do not forget your camera as the sightseeing is quite unique.
Perhaps the most recognized symbol in Seattle, the Space Needle features spectacular views of the city and its surrounding areas. Take the 41-second elevator ride to the top of the observation deck and indulge yourself at the restaurant that revolves 360 degrees while you dine.
Another famous Seattle attraction is Pike Place Market, an authentic farmer’s market where local merchants sell a wide variety of meat, cheese, seafood and produce. In addition to the street performers, musicians, flying fish and local honey, you will enjoy the fine seafood restaurants, antiques, one-of-a-kind items and import goods found at this fantastic market.
Go spend some quality time with your family at the Seattle Center, a 74-acre urban park that was built for the 1962 World’s Fair. The center features excellent art and cultural experiences for kids, including a children’s museum, a children’s theater, a hands-on science center and lots of amusement rides.
Downtown Seattle combines everything that makes this beautiful city so unique. Boutique shops, department stores, specialty shops and a wide variety of restaurants and cafes to enjoy a relaxing afternoon with great views.
