Seattle Attractions

The Agua Verde Café and Paddle Club, located in the University District at Portage Bay rents kayaks for visitors to see Seattle from the water. This is a great way to see the city's maritime culture. Afterward, try the delicious Baja Californian cuisine and margaritas.

A must-visit in downtown Seattle is Pike Place Market, the nation's oldest continually operating farmers market. Nearby on Elliot Bay a boat departs for a the four-hour adventure to Tillicum Village. A 50-minute cruise to the Blake Island offers rich views of Mount Rainier and Puget Sound. While on the island, guests enjoy a traditional Native salmon bake and a Native dance performance. Before returning to Seattle, visitors can feed deer and watch a Native carving demonstration.

The Tour de Chocolat educates foodies about where chocolate originates and how it is made at Theo Chocolate, to how it is refined at Oh! Chocolate. The guests enjoy sampling the award-winning chocolates at Fran's Chocolate. This three-hour journey includes plenty of sampling, playing in the chocolates and chatting about some of Seattle's premium chocolatiers. Another tour group, Savor Seattle, walks guests to Pike Place and downtown vendors who share hefty samples of local seafood, coffee, tea, artisan hand-made cheese and microbrewed beer.

Several local professional theaters including "The Rep" (Seattle Repertory Theater) and A Contemporary Theater (ACT) offer excellent local talent accented with visiting actors. Best bets are local non-profit theaters rather than touring shows. Seattle is second only to New York City in the number of theater seats per capita.

Many travelers enjoy visiting Seattle in the summer months due to the warm weather, to visit the national parks nearby, festivals, maritime attractions and to take Alaska and Pacific cruises. Peak season in Seattle tends to run mid-May through late-September.
