Insider Tips on What to Do In Seattle – A City Guide

Seattle is one of those cities that is recognizable just by a snapshot of The Space Needle or Pike Place Market (Pike’s Place). There are very few cities in the world as iconic as this one. 

Take a trip up The Space Needle, visit the first Starbucks and then take a gander through Pike Place Market. Make sure you hop on the brass pig and try some flavor infused honey sticks. 

Make sure you do The Underground Tour on one of your first days in the city. The Underground Tour in Seattle provides great historical background as well as gives you the Reader’s Digest version of its surly past.

Take a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island to get a different perspective on the city as well as to experience some local living. It’s homely charm will make you think you’re walking through a fairytale. 

Of course, if you’re really adventurous, take a tour of Mount Rainier and a hike if you’re up for climbing one of the country’s most dangerous and active volcanoes.

Starbucks, Tully’s, and Seattle’s Best were all founded here. And while you can’t go wrong with any of these choices, I recommend trying one of the smaller but equally delicious cafes like Victrola.
