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.

Easy to get to with the monorail, there is too many activities and attractions to mention at the Seattle Center. There is great events, park, fountains, Space Needle, IMAX, food, etc. Should be on the list as a place to visit on your Seattle trip.

Different aspects throughout this area... museums, attractions, greenspace, ponds, fountains... Definitely something for everyone and nice spaces for some downtime if you need it.

We got a room at one of the local, small hotels, saw "Interstellar" at the IMAX, went out for drinks and bar snacks, then calmly walked over to the "Center" at 11:30 pm and watched the end of 2014 beginning of 2015. The Space Needle was hot! Well behaved crowd and family fun for all. Fireworks!!! This is the third... More

Tonight on 30 December 2014, my 2 children, husband and my sister, who is a resident of Seattle but still an Aussie, went to celebrate New Years Eve Brisbane time at the SkyCity Restaurant in the Seattle Tower. The restaurant is a revolving restaurant and from 5.00pm when we were seated, we did about 4.5 revolutions around the whole city... More
