Sights in Seattle

Quite honestly speaking, Seattle does not have to offer that many sights such as historical landmarks and memorial sites. If there is one thing you should see then it is, of course, the Space Needle on 5th Ave N and Broad St (206-443-2111). It is the internationally known symbol of the 'Emerald City', made by E.E.Carlson and from the top, you can have some great views of the city. The 185m high Needle is housed in the Seattle Center.

Besides 'the Needle', there are quite a lot of museums and parks to pay a visit. For those who've come to Seattle not to find Tom Hanks but the paradise of beer, they should pay a visit to 'Beer Central' (First Ave 1415, 206-622-6044) which offers all sorts of beers.

Seattle is a nice place to stroll around. There is the waterfront, when you want to breathe in some fresh air and have a look at the incoming or going ships or the nearby islands. When you feel like shopping, pay a visit to the adjacent Pike Place Market which is a continually operating farmers' market with no less than 600 businesses.

Pioneer Square is in the heart of the oldest neighbourhood in Seattle and is part of the National Historic Disitrict. The red-brick buildings are a lust for the eye and house shops, cafes and bars. You can also participate in underground tours at this square. Check out the museums and parks.

Snoqualmie Falls is quite impressive, especially near the rainy season.  Nearby Salish Lodge overlooks the falls and provides a nice place for a meal or an evening.

The walk along the Seattle waterfront provides a great view (once you look beyond the crowds). 

The Grove of the Patriarchs trail in Ohanapecosh offers the short walk through groves of thousand year-old cedars.

From Seattle one might take the 2 hour drive north into Canada and visit Vancouver.
