5 Must Visit Attractions in Seattle Washington

Seattle is definitely a city with something for everyone. Whether you enjoy music, art, science, history, or nature, there is sure to be a Seattle attraction that captures your imagination and makes your trip a memorable one. Here are a few of the many exciting things to see and do in Seattle, Washington. We hope that you enjoy these 5 Must Visit Attractions in Seattle Washington.

The Space Needle

No trip to Seattle would be complete without a visit to the famous Space Needle. Built for the World's Fair in 1962, the 605-foot high Space Needle has become a Seattle landmark. In the revolving restaurant, diners can watch as the scenery slowly changes. The restaurant rotates a full 360 degrees, allowing all diners to see a complete view of the city over the course of their meal.

Pioneer Square

For quaint brick buildings, plenty of shops and eateries, and a unique look into the history of Seattle, check out Pioneer Square. Be sure to visit the Klondike Gold Rush Museum, where you can learn about Seattle's role in the 1897-98 gold rush to the Yukon.

Of course the most famous attraction in Pioneer Square is the Underground Tour. The tour guide will lead you on a subterranean adventure through passages that were once the main streets of Seattle, before the city you see today was built literally on top of them. You will learn all about Seattle's colorful past, including the history of its many rogues and outlaws.

Museum of Flight

Visitors can tour exhibits including a collection of World War II fighters, an authentic World War II German bomb, and an SR-71 Blackbird. For those who enjoy a more hands-on experience, there are flight simulators that give visitors a first-hand experience at being a pilot (without having to leave the ground).

Olympic National Park

This national park allows a rare opportunity to see a living rain forest. The Hoh Rain Forest is home to diverse and unusual flora and fauna, making it an ideal place to hike and take photographs. Other activities to do in the park include kayaking and biking.

Seattle Art Museum

The Seattle Art Museum boasts a world-class collection of art. In addition to its impressive permanent collection, the museum has hosted temporary displays such as Roman art from the Louvre, Fresh Impressionism, and Art of China. The temporary exhibits are constantly changing, so be sure to visit their web page to see what be on display when you come.

These are just a few of the many attractions Seattle has to offer. We hope that you are inspired by these 5 Must Visit Attractions in Seattle Washington.
