If you're assembling a vacation itinerary for seeing all the best sights in Seattle, we've got you covered. (Or perhaps you have a few hours to kill between business meetings and want to know the best way to maximize your time.) Either way, our 10Best list will help you save time on doing all the legwork yourself.
Some top picks don't come as a huge surprise, like visiting the Space Needle, located within the vibrant Seattle Center and (appropriately) proving to be one of the city's most-frequented sightseeing spots. Other must-see locales range from observation decks in historic towers to sprawling natural parks and even some quirky theme tours (think subterranean!).
While you've likely heard of some of these suggestions before, others will offer brand-new perspectives on how to experience this city and all that the surrounding region has to offer. Since weather here can be notoriously finicky, there are indoor suggestions as well as those that send you outdoors into the beautiful elements. (And even when the gray and mist do descend here, you'll quickly learn that this twist doesn't deter locals from getting out into the Great Outdoors.) So throw on some good walking shows, pack a rain jacket (just in case), and be prepared to learn why so many have fallen in love with this spectacular city.
