Seattle tours and sightseeing

 

Modern day Seattle is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with a tradition of birthing underground music genres and raising fresh new artistic talent.


Seattle Travel


Although Seattle is famed for more adult style properties there is much for the family to enjoy to be found within the city. No trip to Seattle would be complete without a visit to the Space Needle, a 520 foot tower which incorporates a restaurant and several viewing areas, and excellent excursion for the whole family. Seattle Art Museum is a logical point on the itinerary of any art lover, this combined gallery and museum hosts an array of static and specialist exhibits throughout the year.

Seattle's main attraction is Pike Place Market. Even non-shoppers will delight in this feast for the senses. Shops and stands selling fresh seafood, produce, and spices fill this massive waterfront building. A visit to Pike Place Market ensures a good “show” as well; the fishmonger is well known for its theatrical fish-throwing. The market also contains restaurants, book stores, antique shops, and other specialty stores. Pike Place Market is home to the world's first Starbucks. Opened in 1971, the establishment has become a historic landmark and retains its retro furnishings.

More shopping and dining options are available at Pioneer Square, a section of downtown Seattle featuring over 20 blocks of unique architecture, independent shops, chic art galleries, and trendy bars and restaurants. Pioneer Square is the place to be when the sun goes down.
