Seattle is one of the most recognizable cities in the world, and for great reason. With so much to see and do, figuring out the best places to visit and explore can be challenging.

Here are a few of the best attractions that you simply cannot miss while sightseeing in Seattle!

Space Needle

One of Seattle’s most recognizable sights is the famous space needle. Constructed for the 1962 World’s Fair, this 605-foot-tall attraction is an epic sight. It offers many photo opportunities, the SkyCity restaurant, an observation deck, and fun, interactive displays.

Seattle Aquarium

There is nothing like bringing the family to the city aquarium, and Seattle offers just that, with over 380 species of birds, fish, invertebrates, and marine mammals to adore all year long. Attractions at the aquarium include the Edge tide pool, the chance to talk with professional divers, and a famous underwater dome so you can see what the fish see!


If you are a sports fan, you should plan ahead and buy tickets to a game at the famous CenturyLink Field. The Seattle Seahawks and Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders call this place home. The park offers a wide range of concessions, the ability to take in the breathtaking Olympic Mountain range, and a great view of the game from every seat.

Pike Place Market

If you want to experience the local flair of Seattle, then you need to check out the famous Pike Place Market. This expansive shopping experience has two floors full of fish, fruit, vegetables, and tasty treats for every acquired taste. If you don’t want to purchase food from a booth, then dine in one of the many restaurants.

Museum of Pop Culture

If you like movies, television, and comic books, you will enjoy the Museum of Pop Culture. The museum offers many exhibits, including those dedicated to Jimi Hendrix, the history of guitars, and a bunch of famous movie costumes.
