What Makes Seattle One of A Kind
If you recognize Seattle just by a snapshot of The Space Needle or Pike Place Market, you’re not alone.
Seattle has quickly become one of the country’s most livable cities and highly visited tourist destinations, home to iconic and historic attractions that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Whether you’re a foodie, a blogger, a lover of arts, music, and nature, the city has something for you.
From the Space Needle to Seattle Living Room Show, here are some of the things that make Seattle truly one of a kind:
The Space Needle
Missing out on the Space Needle would be doing your trip a disservice. Built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the magnificent tower is now the city’s symbol, featuring a high-speed elevator that can whizz tourists to the observation level in just 43 seconds.
The 520-feet structure proudly boasts The Loupe, the world’s first ever rotating glass floor, and the Skyrisers, the tilting glass walls that offer incredible views of the city. If you want sprawling views of Puget Sound and Cascade and Olympic Mountain Ranges, this is where your tourist soul belongs.
According to the official website, when you’re in the Space Needle, “the city actually, really, truly is at your feet.”
If you’re into food, shopping, arts and culture, you should definitely drop by the historic Pioneer Square. The neighborhood is at the heart of Seattle Downtown, surrounded by a host of attractions and natural beauties that mix old with the new. It dates back to 1852 and has since grown into the thriving, iconic urban landscape that it is today. From shops to eateries to romantic and vibrant night life escapades, you’ll never run out of things to do.
The First Ever Starbucks on Pike Place
If you’ve been a Starbucks consumer all your adult life and wish to have a glimpse of where it all began, then you shouldn’t miss Seattle’s Pike Place Market, where the original Starbucks store sits today.
Every year, guests line up on the cobblestone path leading to the store to experience the worn wooden counters and drink coffee made from vintage-style manual espresso machines.
This is the place for the thirsty, the old-fashioned, and the nostalgic.
Chihuly Garden and Glass showcases at the Seattle Center
Take a walk to the Seattle Center to experience the breathtaking Chihuly Garden and Glass by renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. The installations feature a stunning assortment of glimmering cones, entanglements, and coils, that, according to many viewers, no photograph could do justice. If you want to witness glass sculptures amidst natural landscapes, this is for you.
The Seattle Living Room Show
Nothing does concerts quite like The Seattle Living Room. Unusual venues. Intimate, up close and personal with musicians from around the country. Your musical experience doesn’t get better than this.
