CULTURE, COFFEE, AND COOL VIEWS COLLIDE

It’s vacation time. And you want the ultimate Seattle experience. All the local must-sees, must-dos, and must-eats are in the mix. Luckily, you’ll find treasures at every turn in the Emerald City.

Pike Place Market

Seattle’s original farmers market is the heart of the city’s food scene – which makes it a must-stop spot for authentic eats. Visit this nine-acre historic district, and you’ll find everything from quick-serve cafes and bakeries to intimate bistros and fine-dining restaurants. You’ll also discover one of the country’s largest and most vibrant crafts market. 

Wine Tours and Waterfalls

Washington’s wine country is waiting for you just 25 miles outside of Seattle. Skip town for the day and visit Snoqualmie Falls, a two-acre park with a spectacular 270-foot waterfall. Then make your way to Woodinville to find family-owned vineyards and tour the acclaimed Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery. 

Pioneer Square

Turn-of-the century lampposts and Romanesque-Revival buildings line the streets of Pioneer Square. Seattle’s “first neighborhood” is rich in history and home to more than a handful of landmark sights. Swing by Occidental Park, tour famed art galleries, and go snap selfies with the 60-foot Tlingit totem pole.

MUSEUM MADNESS

Are you ready for a serious pop-culture explosion? Because that’s exactly what you’ll find at MoPOP. So break out your best throwback tee and go have some fun.

Seattle Art Museum

The Seattle Art Museum is the city’s largest museum dating back to the 1930s and housing a varied collection of artwork that spans multiple eras and geographic regions.
