The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss
A trip to Seattle isn't complete without visiting Pike Place Market. Here, you can browse the stalls of local merchants and artists, take in a street performance, or watch fishmongers play catch with the catch of the day.
Other Fun Things to Do
- Take in the view from the Space Needle, a 650-foot structure left over from the 1962 World's Fair.
- Glimpse the future of aviation technology at the Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour. See the latest breakthroughs in in-flight entertainment and design your very own aircraft using high-tech aviation software. Travel a few short minutes to the Boeing factory where you'll go behind the massive hanger doors to witness the inner workings of the world's largest airplanes.
If you're looking for an upscale shopping mall with character, head downtown to Westlake Park. To uncover an antique treasure, you'll want to go to the Pioneer Square Antique Mall, where more than 60 dealers have their collections on sale. Or, for more traditional crafts and specialty stores, Pike Place Market is the place to be.
Get a Taste of Local Flavor

With lattes and cappuccinos on just about every street corner, Seattle's easygoing attitude seems to be fueled by caffeine.
The official currency of the United States is the U.S. Dollar (USD).
