Exciting attractions in Seattle

Despite the fact that Seattle plays a huge role in the economy and commerce of America, don’t expect it to be a town with skyscrapers and white collars. You’ll be surprised, but locals call it “The Emerald City”, and it’s not because of the blinks of the sun on the office windows. Seattle is a very green town with lots of parks, public gardens, and squares. Its location is scenic enough alone - between the Puget Sound and Lake Washington, but the local government maintains and creates new spots of green all over the town. If you don’t know what to visit in Seattle when you only have a couple of days, we prepared a list of attractions to check out:

If you get hungry, there’s a restaurant called Sky City with a very unique cuisine. The price to enter the tower is $22, but you can buy a ticket to attend it two times and to admire the evening view for only $32;
  • Pike Place Market is a business card of the town. Located in a 6-story building it attracts over 10 million visitors annually and offers everything you can imagine. It has the biggest seafood choice you have ever seen, various fruit and vegetables, pastry and sweets and more! Moreover, the place is full of street musicians and actors, cafes to grab a snack and souvenir shops to buy something for your friends. The atmosphere there is just incredible!
  • Seattle Waterfront is a beautiful place to enjoy a walk on a sunny day or a chill evening. Take a ride on the Ferris wheel to delight the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, and then head to one of the numerous restaurants, order plates of seafood with wine and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets. If you haven’t bought souvenirs yet, there are plenty of shops here.

Seattle is rich in museums and you won’t regret visiting any of them. Clearly, if you don’t have much time, you’d better enjoy the city itself, but if you have a couple of free hours, don’t hesitate and attend one of the following museums:

  • Museum of Flight;
  • The Museum of Pop Culture;
  • Police Museum;
  • Chihuly Garden and Glass;
