This is where it all happens, or at least where you can get to where it all happens. The famous Chihuly glass museum is here, the Space Needle, the Music Experience and more area all right in this one jam-packed area. The monorail starts and ends here and it's a fun and quick way to get downtown. We always stay... More

While visiting Seattle, take the time to visit and walk around the Seattle Center. From downtown Seattle, take one route via the monorail to get there! On a sunny, dry day it is fun to enjoy the fountains, checking out the view of the Space Needle from the ground up (impressive), numerous eateries, or other activities that can take place... More

Seattle Center covers multiple blocks and has everything! It is the "center" of everything that makes Seattle a cosmopolitan city. Here is what you can do at the "center". Go to the Armory for food or to catch the monorail or to visit the Childrens Theater or enjoy live holiday entertainment. Go the Pacific Northwest Ballet, the Pacific Science Center,... More

Not far from downtown Seattle (walk or catch the monorail from the Westlake centre). You can just relax in the park near the fountain, eat at The Armoury (food court with lots of different options), go to the Science Centre, visit several theatres, museums and Key Arena. Or go up the Space Needle for great views across Seattle (and Mt... More

Coming from Italy, Seattle as most of the cities in US don’t offer so much. This is the place of Seattle worth to spend some hours, since there is a big concentration of touristic attractions. This park has been built around the Space Needle. Space Needle obviously is something to visit, and seen from the bottom is quite impressive, but... More

We enjoyed walking around the Seattle Center and it was only a couple of blocks from our hotel (Hampton Inn and Suites- highly recommend!!). The area was bustling when we visited, with music, food vendors and crafts during the Northwest Folklife Festival last May. Very cool, with all the little music groups scattered around playing different varieties of music. We... More

I really enjoyed relaxing here in the summer, when the weather is good there are tons of people out and it's a good place to sit down and eat a picnic! Cool spot! Great views!

There is lot to see even if you don't buy tickets to places. It can get quite crowded so if you don't mind waiting in lines, arrive early in the morning.
