Welcome to Seattle

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. In no way is this a comprehensive list of all the incredible experiences to be had in Seattle, but this Top 25 Attractions in Seattle compilation is a start. 

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. Search our delicious selection of restaurants, bars, tasting rooms and food tours and book your reservation today.
