What to see in Seattle
Seattle's skyline, with the prominent Space Needle, is one of
America's most recognisable cityscapes which hints at the eclectic
attractions below. The attractions in Seattle both celebrate and
preserve various roles in history, alternating from aviation and
shipbuilding industries, music epicentre and Native American and
contemporary art centre. Other attractions just let visitors enjoy
the moment, including three sports stadiums, an aquarium, zoo,
music laboratory and festive city districts.
Sightseeing Seattle's watery attributes can be enjoyed criss-crossing Puget Sound in state ferries (recently enjoying a spotlight from Grey's Anatomy) or from the lively waterfront shopping area Pikes Place Market.
Among the other highlights are especially great museums showcasing variously the history of flight, contemporary art, an ode to Rock 'n Roll at the Experience the Music Project's architectural wonder, and of course, the views from the Space Needle. Yet perhaps the best thing to do is follow the locals out of the city and into the surrounding nature.
