The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

A trip to Seattle isn't complete without visiting Pike Place Market. Here, you can browse the stalls of local merchants and artists, take in a street performance or watch the fishmongers entertain their customers by hurling fish to each other!

Other Fun Things to Do

  • Take in the view from the Space Needle, a 198-metre (650-foot) structure left over from the 1962 World Fair.
  • Glimpse the future of aviation technology at the Future of Flight Aviation Centre and Boeing Tour. See the latest breakthroughs in in-flight entertainment and design your very own aircraft using high-tech aviation software. Travel a few short minutes to the Boeing factory where you'll go behind the massive hanger doors to witness the inner workings of the world's largest aeroplanes.

Shopping Around

If you're looking for an upmarket shopping centre with character, head towards the city centre to Westlake Park. To uncover an antique treasure, you'll want to go to the Pioneer Square Antique Mall, where more than 60 dealers have their collections on sale. Or, for more traditional crafts and speciality shops, Pike Place Market is the place to be.

Get a Taste of Local Flavour

Thanks to the fish-abundant waters, Seattle offers fabulous seafood restaurants, ranging from fine dining to casual eating. There's also a great selection of pubs and, of course, coffee shops. With lattes and cappuccinos on just about every street corner, Seattle's easy-going attitude seems to be fuelled by caffeine.

Local Currency

The official currency of the United States is the US dollar (USD).
