24 Best Things to Do in Seattle

People who say you can't have it all probably haven't been to Seattle. The city is like a choose-your-own-adventure book of spectacular experiences. From unparalleled views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains to world-class museums, parks, and fresh seafood, the Emerald City is a dream for all kinds of travelers. And the expansive array of outdoor activities, from kayaking to picnicking in the parks or on the beach, only add to the appeal of this eco-conscious destination.


To help you plan a memorable getaway to the northwest city, here are 24 of the best things to do in Seattle, according to a local.

Visit the top of the Space Needle.

The Seattle skyline is defined by the iconic Space Needle. Tall and slender, with a top that flares into the shape of a flying saucer, it's a beautiful thing to behold. To get the full experience, ride the elevator to the top and take in panoramic views of the city, water, and mountains from the rotating glass observation deck. Make your visit even more memorable with reservations for drinks and culinary pairings at The Loupe Lounge.


Stroll through Pike Place Market.

For more than 100 years, Pike Place Market has been Seattle's go-to spot for fresh fish, produce, flowers, and artisan goods. Even if you don't plan to shop, be sure to set aside some time to stroll through and take in the sights and smells of one of the nation's most famous public markets. And don't leave without pausing to watch the sellers throw fish to customers at the seafood market.


Spend the afternoon at The Museum of Flight.

Set aside a few hours to visit The Museum of Flight. It's one of the largest independent air and space museums, with 23 acres of more than 160 airplanes and spacecrafts, countless artifacts, interactive displays, and exhibits. The collection is spread out both indoors and outdoors, which means it's a great stop regardless of the weather. There's even a children's Flight Zone with hands-on activities for young visitors.

Nice list but they forgot one item:  The Salmon Bake, and American Indian performance at Tillicum Village on Blake Island.  It's a short ferry trip, and a memorable experience that shouldn't be missed

I'll have to look those up, thank you!

The American Indian performance is part of the salmon bake.   Here is some information about it:  Seattle Tours | Tillicum Village Cruise and Salmon Bake | USA |

There are probably more articles/information available. If it seems a bit on the pricey side, I can tell you it is well worth the cost

If you go there, let us know how you liked it.   

It's not that bad price wise considering what  you get and the things you get to see and learn.  I sure will if I do!
