Welcome to Seattle
A place of surprising contrasts. Seattle is two cities in one—it combines a world-class metropolis within wild, beautiful, natural surroundings. Visitors enjoy Seattle’s lively downtown, great shopping, wonderful restaurants, espresso carts on every corner, and a thriving cultural community full of theatre, music and museums.
Stroll through historic Pike Place Market, marvel at Chihuly Garden and Glass, then end your day with a spectacular meal at a 5-star restaurant. Catch an indie band at the Crocodile or a Beethoven symphony at Benaroya Hall. See a Broadway-bound play or ride a waterfront Ferris wheel.
It’s hard to beat the Pacific Northwest when it comes to fresh ingredients, forward-thinking chefs, and an unparalleled dedication to all things local. Whether you want to dine on flavor-packed dishes or sip small-batch spirits, Seattle is the place to taste your heart out. Local celebrity chefs like Tom Douglas, Ethan Stowell, and Renee Erickson infuse the city with their creative flavors, while a number of Washington wineries, breweries, coffee roasters, cideries, soda makers, and distilleries make it easy to always drink like a local. Sink your teeth into juicy burgers, get a sugar fix at a beloved Seattle bakery, or relax at an indie coffee shop. The options are endlessly delicious.
Seattle is clean, green and vibrant: a city for all seasons. Join us for APhA2019 to see for yourself!
