Best Reasons to Visit Seattle for Your Next Holiday—The Emerald City

Seattle is one of the sunniest cities in the US. It's the kind of place that favours shopping, dining, and exploring. Enjoy sightseeing from visiting museums to drives that take you into rugged terrains. Here are the best reasons to visit Seattle.


Plan a Museum Hopping Tour

The collection of museums that Seattle boasts makes it well worth planning a museum-hopping tour. Whether it's history, arts, or culture that piques your interests, there is a gallery that is bound to satisfy your curiosity. The Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) will turn out to be an interesting browse if you want to learn more about the area's history and its background as an important link in the nation's industrial revolution. The Museum of Popular Culture (MoPOP) is bound to interest the younger folks and adults with its huge array of displays that tell the story of music and allows you to try learning an instrument. Others include the Museum of Flight, which is credited with being the world's biggest air museum. There is much more of course, and to easily charter a course across the most fascinating attractions in Seattle, choose from the best hotels in Seattle that promise not only comfortable accommodation but easy access to the attractions. Popular options like Pan Pacific Seattle are only a 6-minute drive from MoPOP.


Visit the Vintage Markets

Not to be missed is a browse of the iconic Pike Place Market, which was started in 1907 by eight farmers. Today, it is one of the oldest such markets in the nation, boasting an array of vendor stalls, shops, restaurants, and heaps of other attractions that guarantee to keep you entertained for a good portion of your day. You may find some curious and interesting souvenir items as well as a few mouth-watering food items you can take back to your hotel in Seattle.


Go Check out the Space Needle

This futuristic tower began as a sketch on a napkin. Designed by Edward E. Carlson, the Space Needle was made to be a part of the World's Fair in 1962, which was held under the theme "21st Century." The 605-feet-tower was constructed to be strong enough to hold out against wind power that clocks up to 200 miles per hour.


See the Gum Wall

The Gum Wall is literally a gum wall. It began in the 1990s when patrons were asked to leave their chewing gum before entering the Market Theatre; the gum ended up getting stuck on the unofficial gum wall and was even taken off a few times until officials realised the wall had turned into an attraction. Hence, the birth of the Market Theatre Gum Wall. Located at the back of Pike Place Market on Post Alley, the wall is now coated in a very thick layer of gum.


Be A Happy Foodie

Don't miss out on this huge experience because Seattle has over 3,000 plus restaurants. And it definitely is a foodie mecca. If you choose a centrally located Seattle hotel, club hopping and whetting your appetite on a variety of yummy dishes will not be a problem.
