A coastal walk, a satisfying seafood feast, and a connection with Seattle’s quirky culture and its walkable, breathtaking scenery—there’s something in Seattle that you will want to discover.

Experience Seattle

Lean into the beauty that is Puget Sound. Take a cruise or ferry across this immense Pacific Ocean inlet, along its forested shores, and delight in sailing smooth salt waters. Puget Sound has more than 170 islands, some connected by bridges, so there’s much to explore here. Kayaking and boating, hiking and biking, birding, whale-watching, diving and snorkeling, golfing—the Sound is rich in recreative adventures.

Soar over Seattle as Wings Over Washington transports you on a virtual aerial ride of the whole state—from Mount Ranier’s glacier-topped peaks to Olympic National Park’s seashore cliffs.

If you are up for a great view from the heights, overlook Elliott Bay from the Seattle Great Wheel (the West Coast’s tallest ferris wheel). Walk along Waterfront Park for inspiring views. Wander through masterworks along the zigzag path of the Olympic Sculpture Park

Take in aircraft and space vehicles plus historical exhibits at the Museum of Flight. Explore flight simulators, get a feel for what pilots experience, see the aviation pavilion and watch a 3D movie, and take a Boeing field tour.

For an artistic must-do in Seattle, visit Chihuly Garden and Glass, the international glass headquarters of Fulbright Fellowship recipient Dale Chihuly, and browse the Glasshouse. 

Taste Seattle

Can you say “pancake heaven”? Take a fork to breakfast at Portage Bay, its four locations serve up hefty portions and, yes, you might want to make a reservation.   

You may not be shopping for seafood, but duck into the very entertaining Pike Place Market that overlooks the Elliott Bay waterfront. It’s among the oldest continuously operated farmers market in America, serving patrons since August 17, 1907. Have dinner here, browse some of the independent shops, or taste-test excellent Northwestern adult beverages. For an eatery inside the market, sit down at Place Pigalle.

Chocoholics will want to investigate the free samples and perhaps a tour of Theo Chocolate Factory, a frontrunner in sustainable and organic cocoa bean practices that bills itself as “a company rooted in chocolate.”

Enjoy gazing over glistening waters of Elliott Bay while dining at Elliott’s Oyster House. Or, choose from among the eateries at Pier 57’s Miners Landing. Try the Salmon Cooker for fast, good, and relatively inexpensive fare. The Cooker serves up Alder-smoked salmon, halibut, and cod, classic fish and chips and clam chowder, as well as fresh oysters, Dungeness crab, shrimp and crab cocktails, and beer. Finish off with homemade ice cream. Try one of the other Miners Landing restaurants—the Crab Pot or Fisherman’s Restaurant & Bar. There’s also Alaskan Sourdough Bakery, which offers breakfast in addition to baked goods. Another eatery to try is AQUA by El Gaucho for both fresh seafood and custom-aged steaks.

For those fond of cider, check out the award-garnering Schilling Cider House. The cider shop offers more than 30 craft ciders and features tastings and classes. 

Of course, we can’t leave Seattle without a coffee encounter since it’s home to the following roasters and servers and then some.

If tea is more your taste, visit among these tea hotspots to find your best hot brew.
