Seattle is an exciting yet laid-back urban city surrounded by unmatched natural beauty against a backdrop of jaw-dropping mountain scenery.
Known for its delightful fusion of urban and rural, Seattle is a place for music & art-culture, a haven for foodie’s and Washington wines that offer perfect pairings, with nature and adventure in abundance and home to the large Tech companies like Microsoft & Amazon.
For a true taste of the city, visit Pike Place Market famous for the fishmongers who toss large salmon back and forth to one another and also home to the first Starbucks Café, Seattle is after-all World-Famous for its coffee. Everyone should experience the Iconic Space Needle building standing at 520ft with panoramic views of the waterfront & nearby mountain Ranges.
Seattle has a thriving music & art scene where you can discover the home of music legends like Jimi Hendrix and Indie Rocks greats Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Visit Pioneer Square, the original heart of the city with its beautiful historic brick buildings, nowadays bustling with notable restaurants packed full of Bohemian boutiques and art culture.
Alternatively relax on a Washington State ferry and cruise through a tide-washed puzzle of islands to San Juan Island’s 'Friday Harbor', perfect for some whale-watching as they play in these waters on a regular basis or perhaps a visit to the 100+ different Washington wineries in nearby Woodinville .
With two centrally located cruise terminals and easy access to the airport, Seattle is also one of the premier points of departure for an Alaska or Pacific Northwest cruise. Better yet, before or after your cruise, you can easily explore Seattle’s major attractions.
Whether you have two hours or a few days in town, there’s plenty to see and do mere steps from your cruise ship. Seattle is a sightseer’s paradise.
