Landmarks in Seattle

It's like getting a shot with the Eiffel Tower in the background in Paris or Big Ben in London - no matter which city you visit, you've got to find those landmarks for the perfect background for your photos. If you're visiting Seattle, this historic city has plenty of landmarks and sights to add to your must-see list.

Our list starts with the obvious - it's not just a symbol for Seattle, but for the Pacific Northwest. The Space Needle is located in Seattle Center, a landmark itself, and for about $20 you can zoom up to the top for an unparalleled view of the city. Once you're back on the ground, walk over to the Pacific Science Center for lots of fun activities for kids and adults.

The Waterfront is another Seattle landmark that offers the perfect setting for a sunny day. The Aurora Bridge in Fremont is a Seattle landmark, notable most for the giant stone troll hiding beneath it. Check out the troll at Christmas or Halloween - the locals usually spruce him up for the holidays. And the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Chinatown is a beautiful tribute to the various Asian cultures that have influenced the city.

Ready to rock out? Both the Moore Theatre and the Paramount Theatres are fun concert venues and landmarks, mostly because of the contradiction of modern music in such classically designed buildings. Or for a day with nature, head to the beautiful Seward Park or the Volunteer Park Conservatory, both lovely Seattle landmarks.
