Quick Guide

Seattle is alternative, it’s hip, it does its own thing and it doesn’t care what anyone thinks. It’s all independent stores, quirky cafes, and friendly locals. It’s a small town with a big personality. Visitors to Seattle will feel welcome and at home immediately. There’s none of the sense that you’re getting the ‘tourist version’ of the city that you can sometimes sense in bigger places. The cafe that you’re sipping coffee in, the microbrewery that you’re sampling 10 beers in, the bar that you’re listening to live music in: they’re all places and things that any native Seattle-ite would visit and do.

Pike Place Market is a definite highlight. You’ll find an eccentric mix of handicrafts, antiques, produce, and food stalls. And the people are even more diverse! Pike Place is perfect for people watching and getting a true sense of the city. Take a wander through the streets of the neighbourhoods. Highlights include Pioneer Square Park, Fishermen’s Terminal, and Hiram M Chittenden Locks. When it comes to parks, Seattle has some very special offerings. Visit the Olympic Sculpture Park, Kerry Park, and Gas Works Park.
