The home of grunge, Starbucks coffee and the Space Needle, Seattle is on the radar of many travelers. A vast and dynamic city, Seattle’s size is actually quite manageable, making it a good choice for a quick trip. If you’ve only got a few days to explore this city centered around foodies and art, here is a quick guide to see how to spend your time.
Where to stay
The city is made up of more than 10 neighborhoods, all offering something different. Choose which one to stay in based on what interests you most. If you want to stay by the waterfront and have easy access to Pike Place Market, downtown is your best bet. If art galleries and fine dining is more your style, Pioneer Square makes a lovely base. SoDo/Georgetown is the place for unique bars, coffee houses and restaurants, and the Queen Anne-South Lake Union gets you up close and personal with the Space Needle.
What to do
You shouldn’t have trouble keeping busy in Seattle. Start with a wander around the infamous Pike Place Market for food, drinks and shopping. Don’t forget to make some time to visit the world’s first Starbucks, either. If you prefer a little more guidance in your culinary ventures, consider booking onto a Seattle food tour. Take some time to wander around the museums, like the Pacific Science Center, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Asia Art Museum or the Experience Music Project. If you want to spend a little time in the sun, Seattle offers plenty of green space, but make sure to visit Gasworks park, Green Lake, and Kerry Park.
Where to eat
You won’t have any trouble finding delicious and innovative cuisine around Seattle. In fact, trying the food is a must if you want to really understand the city. The Walrus And The Carpenter is a top choice for seafood, while Nirmal’s is the place to go to get your Indian fix. Beardslee Public House is a fantastic spot for pizza, and Bramling Cross is an ideal venue for relaxing while sipping a cider and eating some house-made sausages.
