Seattle seems to be a city in paradise as it is surrounded by water, mountains, and forests of evergreens. There is so much green land around Seattle that it is now known as “Emerald City” as well.

Chihuly Garden and Glass
This place is perfect for those who want to see pretty items made of glass. You can even see a live workshop of glass blowing. The most amazing part is seeing the details of the items.

Museum of Flight
Are you passionate about learning everything related to the airplanes? This museum will surely quench your thirst for knowledge while allowing you to be really close to some models. Depending on your luck, you might get a tour of the plant where few Boeing models are being made. Kids might love this place.

Pike Place Market
Almost everyone living in Seattle knows that if they want to spent some money, this might be the best place to do it. You can buy almost anything you have in mind, including candied salmon. The best part is that you can enjoy this place regardless of the weather.

Sky View Observatory
People coming here in the past recommend a visit during a day with clear skies. You’ll get the best view of the city, mountains around it and what not. Bringing your binoculars and camera are a must.

Space Needle
This amazing looking tower has a single purpose: making tourists to go see it. The best thing it has to offer is a spectacular view of the city’s sky like, much like the previous attraction. Visiting them both will be interesting and you could even say which one has a better view.

The public library of Seattle
Even if you don’t like reading or architecture you should still stop by Seattle’s Public Library. It’s unique design surely attracts many pairs of eyes on a daily basis.

Woodland Park Zoo
If you’re scared of heights or really large objects, perhaps you should stop by the zoo. It might be best to get the zoo’s app before you go there, to plan the visit at an hour where most animals are out and about.

Hiram M. Chittenden Locks
This place costs nothing to visit and you might be lucky enough to see the salmon on its way to spawn. Another cool thing to see is the boats transferring from the lake to the sound, or the other way around. This needs to be done because of their different elevations.

Beneath the streets
This spot is generally accessible though tours. Should you get on one, you’ll learn more about the history of the city. There are two tours of Seattle’s Underground, and this is just one of them. Claustrophobics are advised to keep away from this tour.

Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee graves
Everyone knows who Bruce Lee was. Brandon was his son and he died exactly 20 years after Bruce. While Bruce wanted to be known mostly for this martial arts skills and teachings, Brandon wanted to be known for this acting skills.
