But what to do in Seattle?
Space Needle – The Space Needle was built for the 1962 World’s Fair. The Space Needle features an observation deck at 520 feet, the SkyCity restaurant at 500 feet, and a gift shop. It usually a long wait in the line so my suggestion is to look at it on the way to the EMP and then you can say you saw it!
Address: 400 Broad St, Seattle, WA 98109, USA
Seattle Art Museum (SAM) – this is one of my favorite museums mostly because it is small and usually has at least one great exhibit. I get overwhelmed at the New York Museums but this one if perfect for a half day trip and conveniently located downtown.
Address: 1300 1st Ave, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
Japanese Gardens – The Japanese Gardens located in Washington Park and are close to Madison Park. They are stunning and a great place for a picnic or walk.
Address: 1075 Lake Washington Blvd E, Seattle, WA 98112, USA
Gasworks Park – Gasworks park is a public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company and has large structures from the original coal plant that is amazing to view at the park and from the water.
Address: 2101 N Northlake Way, Seattle, WA 98103, USA
Whidbey Island – Whidbey Island is a hidden gem in the Seattle area that is just being discovered by tourists. It’s about an hour and a half outside Seattle with a short ferry ride but you feel like you are in another world. It’s a great place to relax or visit for the weekend. Hotels are very limited though, most people rent a house. Like all places in Seattle, peak time is July, August.
