Things to Do this Summer in Seattle


It’s Independence Day and the kick-off to Seattle’s amazing summer weather. For the next three months, there is no place more beautiful than Seattle and we hope that you come visit and explore the city we call home. When you do visit Seattle, here are some of our favorite things to do:
1. Biased? Maybe! But the Seattle Duck Tour is one of the best ways to get to know Seattle when you first arrive. Laugh and learn as the Duck dances through the streets of Seattle and splashes into Lake Union.

2. “Hangry” is no way to enjoy your vacation. Skip breakfast and visit our friends at Savor Seattle for a full tummy of Seattle’s best local fare. Our fave? The classic Pike Place Market tour.

3. Speaking of Pike Place Market… Seattle’s been going farm to table since 1907 and a visit to Seattle is incomplete without a trip to America’s longest running farmer’s market. Buy some fresh flowers for your hotel room, eat the delicious Chukar Cherries and ship the freshest seafood home from the fishmongers at Pike Place Fish Market.

4. MOHAI’s summer exhibit of Toys of the 50s, 60s and 70s started this weekend. Let your imagination run wild as you learn and play with the likes of Barbie, Gumby and Mr. Potato Head.

5. And, be sure to visit the Pacific Science Center this summer for The Art of the Brick, featuring huge art pieces made exclusively from Legos. Named one of CNN’s Top Ten “Global Must-See Exhibitions”!
