Seattle: A Mix of Modern Landmarks and Scenic Nature Spots
Surrounded by mountains, evergreen forests, and water, the city of Seattle in Washington is a great place to visit in Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest where tourists can easily explore thousands of acres of parkland. Home to the 1962 World’s Fair legacy, the futuristic Space Needle, the city is a mix of modern landmarks and scenic nature spots that fit every type of traveler. The gateway to the area, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport offers thousands of flights from all over the world.
Best Time to Visit
The Seattle International Film Festival in May and the Seafair in July are among the top events that draw tourists during the peak season from May to September. While rainy season is from November to May, this is still a good time to visit the city for finding the best Seattle, WA hotels deal and staying away from the bulk of the travelers.
What to Do & Area Attractions
The historic Pike Place Market, home to the original Starbucks, is certainly a must-visit for all travelers in Seattle. The city is also a good destination for curious minds who plans to visit the Boeing Company's original plant set at the Museum of Flight as well as the nearby Olympic Sculpture Park. Its vibrant music scene features the Museum of Pop Culture plus lots of options to enjoy the city's serious coffeehouse and farm-to-table dining scenes.
