Visiting Seattle is thrilling. This sight-seeing city boasts a treasure trove of exciting things to do and see. Situated on the West Coast of America there’s so much to experience, it’s wise to book plenty of time to visit everything. Marvel at the Olympic Sculpture Park, gaze at the exhibits at the Art Museum, watch the fish flit backwards and forwards at the Aquarium and wonder about the scientific discoveries at the Pacific Science Centre.
One of the tourist destinations that mustn’t be missed is Pike Place Market which is jam-packed full of trinkets and gifts made by Seattle’s own artisans (as well as the best place to buy fresh fish). The scenery is magnificent, with Seattle Harbour in the background, a super opportunity to admire the many boats moored in the marina.
Take in the city’s views on The Space Needle (a huge Ferris Wheel) and the place where people look over at Mount Rainer. For the most sublime sunrise, witness a spectacular display from the Smith Tower. Better still, experience the view on-board a Bolt Jets, it beats any other view hands down and shows off Seattle’s magnificent skyline featuring both skyscrapers and ocean.
Be part of an NFL match at CenturyLink Field and witness the Seattle Seahawks strut their stuff or head to a bar close-by and get in with the locals cheering their team on (they’re a passionate crowd!). If hip bars are what’s needed then head to Portland which is renowned for its laidback attitude and trendy restaurants and bars, don’t miss out on a great tasting Seattle corndog! If coffee is a must-drink then Seattle boasts coffee bars on almost every corner, often more than two and is probably home to the best-tasting coffee in the whole of the USA.
