Located in the Pacific Northwest of the USA, Seattle is a coastal port city, surrounded by the Puget Sound and Lake Washington. Though not as popular around the world as its larger American counterparts like Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago or New York, Seattle is home to some of the best outdoor scenery in the States and boasts some of the most well-known international brands, such as Starbucks and Microsoft. Seattle is also a popular city to use as a US launching point for travellers coming down from Canada, and vice versa.
There are many tours of Seattle available, from the Ride the Ducks Seattle tour, where part of the trip is in an amphibious World War II vehicle, to the Seattle Underground Tour, where marriage ceremonies can be held. Landmarks include the Space Needle, which offers the most spectacular sunset view; Pike Place Market, full of quirky shops and restaurants; and the Seattle Aquarium, which features giant octopuses and gill sharks amongst its aquatic inhabitants.
To enjoy Seattle outdoors, visit one of the many parks in the city. Kubota Garden is highly recommended with its fusion of Northwest and Japanese environmental landscaping. Travellers can also mountain bike or hike, or for water activities, go kayaking, to fully enjoy the beautiful and serene scenery.
Seattle’s lush greenery and mountain views belie its title as home to grunge music. However, this title is an appropriate indication of the city’s performing arts heritage.
