    Pike Place Market

    282 reviews

    This is the mecca for Seattle tourists, for sure. It's also home to the first ever Starbucks store, as well as the famous fish throwing. Foodies love this area because there are a bunch of great local restaurants like Matt's in the Market, Cafe Champagne, Beecher's Cheese, Piroshky Piroshky, and more! It's definitely a must visit for tourists, and I'm ...

    Space Needle

    242 reviews

    Did you know it costs $19 to go up to the top of the Space Needle? Neither did I, until recently. My friend and I took a trip to the top and we spent some time taking photos of the 360 degree view of the city. Blue skies galore! It was a gorgeous June day. The ticket is good all ...

    Seattle Waterfront

    119 reviews

    NIce for a stroll, you will find Ivars and Elliotts here as well as the Aquarium and the big wheel. There is a little "park" just south of the Aquarium that is off the busy side walk and is a nice place to enjoy an ice cream and the view. The arcade is as you'd expect adds a fun atmosphere. ...

    This destination at Seattle Center is a two-for-one package that makes for a great day. The Experience Music Project is a museum of rock-and-roll and pop music with a lot of great exhibits and hands-on stations. Seattle has always been a great music town, so it's thrilling to see instruments and other memorabilia from artists like Jimi Hendrix. Kids get ...

    Gas Works Park

    61 reviews

    Beautiful Gasworks Park is beautiful year-round, which is probably why it's a popular filming location for movies set in Seattle. It's probably most famous for appearing in a playful paintball fight scene in “Ten Things I Hate About You” starring a young Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. In addition to the striking image of the rusted-but-preserved gas plant decommissioned before ...

    Washington State Ferry

    51 reviews

    Riding the ferry can be another fun family (or couples) excursion. Walk on rates are not bad at all and the excitement of riding on these amazing boats is parallel to none. If you don't live near the water this is a great idea for a filler activity! It's not too long and if the weather is nice it's a ...

    Safeco Field

    53 reviews

    Safeco has great visibility from every seat in the stadium. There's nothing quite like chilling out on a sunny day with a whole baseball game and a basket of fries in front of you. I gave Safeco three stars and Centurylink four because it's more fun to see teams that win. But it's a well-built stadium :).

    Alki Beach Park

    38 reviews

    No tropical beach, this. Alki Beach Park is a great place to stroll the shore, feel the Pacific Northwest breeze, and, maybe, spot a bald eagle or a whale.

    Seattle Public Library (Central location)

    33 reviews

    This is a fascinating place to spend part of your day, especially if you are a fan of Architecture. I also really enjoyed looking through their collection of sheet music. There is something wonderful about acutally holding paper in your hands and reading words, notes or seeing pitcures.

    University of Washington

    35 reviews

    I'm not just biased because I'm a Husky, the University of Washington has got to be one of the most beautiful college campuses I've ever seen. The best time to visit is in the early spring when the cherry trees blossom in the Quad. From there you're only steps away from Red Square and the stunning vaulted ceiling of Suzzallo ...

    Woodland Park Zoo

    28 reviews

    It's all happening at the zoo! I have been going to the zoo for years and it never gets old. They continually improve the park and the quality of life for the animals. They provide education to children and adults on the habitats of the animals and how important it is to preserve those habitats. During the summer months there ...

    Lake Union

    27 reviews

    You just have to love a place like Lake Union where the Kenmore Sea Planes are landing and taking off regularly throughout the day. The yaghts are apparent and the Seattle Skyline is bliss with the Space Needle and EMP as a background. What a wonderland. It's no wonder why they nick name Seattle the Emerald City! I really think ...

    Boeing Museum

    26 reviews

    The "museum" is okay, but a tad small - the best part is the Boeing Tour - a must for any aviation buff. The "Boeing Museum" (at Boeing Field) is not to be confused with the "Museum of Flight" - a much more in-depth and enjoyable experience.

    Kerry Park

    23 reviews

    Kerry Park sits atop Queen Anne, which is the nice and poshy area of Seattle. Kerry Park offers an awesome view of Seattle, which includes downtown Seattle, the Space Needle Park, and the waterfront area. I recommend going to Kerry Park in the evening.
