Seattle Travel Guide

Our Seattle Travel Guide! The Emerald City shines bright as we explore this Pacific Northwest Gem.

Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities in America and has so much to offer visitors to its verdant shores.

Nestled between ancient conifer forests, sprawling inland waterways, and imposing mountain ranges, it’s hard to find a city with a more impressive surrounding than the Emerald City.

Home to fresh and delicious seafood, and some of the best burgers you’ll ever have, you’re not going to go hungry in Seattle!

Welcome to Seattle, a city that straddles the modern world and the natural one.

While it’s known for its overcast weather, when the sun comes out in Seattle, you’re in for the perfect photo op, where blue skies and calm seas surround classic architecture and striking modern buildings. Take in a view of the city from the Observation Deck of Smith Tower, then head down to the waterfront for incredible seafood and harbor cruises.

Visit the world-famous Pike Place Market, home to fresh catches, local produce, and yes, the world’s first Starbucks®. From there, explore the great outdoors at Woodland Park Zoo, full of recreated savannahs and tropical rainforests. If you’re still craving more natural wonders, go to Olympic National Park a few hours away and meander through its scenic, wooded beauty.

Round out your Seattle sightseeing and pick your way through the driftwood scattered across the shore. Look out to the ocean, watch the sunset, and know you’re in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
