Seattle is a beautiful city with great natural beauty and an array of cultural attractions. This article will give you an overview of the best sights, museums, and parks in Seattle.
Introduction to Seattle
Seattle is an ideal city for seeing, doing, and loving. With a reputation for over 150 years of unrivaled tourism, Seattle is one of the USA's most popular tourism destinations. Seattle is made for lovers. Seattle has grown into a truly diverse and vibrant city. It is about 30 miles (48 km) long and has a population of about 750,000 people. It is divided into 16 neighborhoods, each with its own distinct identity.
The Space Needle is Seattle’s best sight. Seattle is a small city of just over 750,000 residents that is home to two University of Washington campuses, several colleges, and universities, and Seattle’s modern landscape – the Space Needle. The Space Needle was completed in 1962 and is a visitor attraction that takes your breath away. Situated on the roof of the Space Needle (at 520 feet high) you have an amazing panorama of the city. A five-minute elevator ride up the Needle is a blast as the SkyCity Restaurant offers you views of the Puget Sound and Mount Rainier. The Space Needle and the monorail for tourists make for a very unique environment in Seattle.
The Seattle Children's Museum is the largest children's museum in the world. It features exhibits, galleries, programs, and camps. It also provides interactive technology that is geared toward children ages 3 to 17.
The Seattle Asian Art Museum (SAAAM) has an extensive collection of South Asian art. It also has a number of rotating exhibitions throughout the year.
Museum of Flight The Museum of Flight is one of the most popular museums in Seattle, with planes and helicopters throughout the museum, as well as a variety of other aviation-related items. As you walk through the museum, you can learn about the people and events that shaped aviation. The museum is also an important landmark for air tourists. What to expect: The museum holds a variety of attractions and shows, including the Great Planes show. The museum is open from 9:30am until 5:00pm on weekdays, and 9:30am until 6:00pm on weekends. Tickets cost $25 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $15 for children ages 3-12.
When you are in Seattle make sure to check out Goldie's Grill (in the historic Chinatown area). The restaurant makes its own bread from organic flour in house, delivers each meal on a trolley bus, and makes its own ice cream. It is best known for its all-day breakfast, but its dinner and lunch menus are also excellent.
Best spot for photos
Located in the Fremont district, Camera Obscura is an optical museum and research facility. The museum features two rotating exhibits of more than 600 optical illusions, puzzles and inventions. The museum is a great place to take photographs.
Gilgamesh is an organic chain of clothing stores owned by Bonobos, the men's clothing retailer. The stores in Seattle have a clean and minimalist look with the standard color combinations of khaki and black. The store also has organic and sustainable items in a small section. This place is also great for taking pictures.
Last but not least, the Space Needle is an incredible place to take pictures and videos.
Best Parks in Seattle
There are many amazing parks in Seattle. The most famous park is Boeing Field Park, which is a grassy area in the center of the city. This park is also surrounded by plenty of shopping centers, such as the Westlake Center, which is one of the biggest malls in the U. S. A. However, if you want to visit a quieter place with a lot of greenery and less traffic, you should go to Magnuson Park.
Seattle is a very interesting place with great natural beauty and a lot of modern architecture. Moreover, there is a lot of culture in this city. And for all of these reasons, I think you should visit Seattle at least once in your lifetime. If you've never been there, 2021 is the time to visit Seattle for the first time.
