What to Do in Seattle

A weekend getaway in Seattle could involve anything from shopping and eating out at fabulous restaurants to exploring Pike Place Market and learning about Pacific Northwest marine life. Seattle is home to professional sports teams, so catching an exciting home game is always an option.

  • Space Needle

    A trip to Seattle wouldn't be complete without experiencing the breathtaking Pacific Northwest views from atop the 605-foot Space Needle, or check out the landmark's revolving glass floor, the Loupe. If you're really adventurous, go on a virtual reality bungee jump. There’s also a wine bar and a café within the tower, so you can sit back and take in the views.

  • Pike Place Market

    Get your foodie on by visiting the popular, nine-acre Pike Place Market along Elliott Bay. The iconic market houses more than 500 vendors, including restaurants, specialty food shops, and artisan stalls. Fish throwing entertains adults and kids alike!

  • Chihuly Garden and Glass

    Dedicated to Tacoma artist Dale Chihuly, this inspiring set of eight galleries showcases his incredible glass-blowing artwork. There's also a theatre, verdant garden, site's centerpiece, the Glasshouse. Enjoy a tai chi or yoga class, if you like.

  • Seattle Aquarium

    The Seattle Aquarium aims to educate visitors about the delicate marine environment of Puget Sound. You'll be introduced to tufted puffins, harbor seals, and adorable otters. The aquarium also hosts scuba diver shows, whale presentations, storytime for younger kids, and marine wildlife talks.

Day Trips from Seattle

While you'll never run out of things to see and do right in Seattle, there are several destinations nearby you may want to consider day-tripping to. Majestic falls, volcanoes, and national parks are within a day's drive. Or, if you’d like to experience a bit of Canada, hop on a ferry to beautiful Victoria, BC.

  • Snoqualmie Falls

    A 30-mile drive east of Seattle will bring you to the striking 270-foot Snoqualmie Falls along the Snoqualmie River. Take in the views from its observation deck, or indulge in a spa treatment at a local lodge before heading back to the Emerald City.

  • Mount Rainier National Park

    If you're seeking outdoor adventure, you’ll find everything from spectacular mountain views to hiking and skiing at Mount Rainier National Park, only 64 miles southeast of Seattle.

  • Victoria, BC

    Take a ferry ride with Clipper Vacations to Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia, Canada. Check out the stately Parliament Buildings, enjoy a classic British-style afternoon tea service, or see the colorful 55-acre Butchart Gardens.

  • Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument

    Nearly three hours' drive south of Seattle is Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument in Gifford Pinchot National Forest. There's an informative visitors center explaining the 1980 eruption devastation, as well as volcano views from the Johnston Ridge Observatory. You can go hiking in summer and snowshoeing in winter.

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Seattle base64Hash What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Seattle

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Seattle

When packing for your Seattle getaway, take into account the activities you plan to participate in. If you’re heading out onto the water to do some whale watching, warmer layers might be the best choice. If you're staying in the city, you could stay casual during the days, and then dress it up for dinner or nightclubbing.

  • Casual is key

    Pacific Northwest residents tend to dress casually, possibly to be ready for their next adventure at a moment’s notice – they are spoiled for choice, really. During summer, T-shirts, shorts, and sandals are the norm, but keep in the mind that evenings cool down quickly. The winter months offer up a mix of rain with some snow here and there, so a lightweight, waterproof, winter jacket and appropriate footwear are a must.

  • Layer it up!

    In Seattle, a typical northwest city, the weather can seem to be in constant flux – it can be raining one minute, with the warm sun coming out the next. Therefore, wearing layers you can easily shed is the best plan when visiting this coastal city.

  • Sunglasses and sunblock

    Don’t let the Pacific Northwest's mixed weather fool you! You can just as easily get a sunburn on a cloudy, overcast day as you can in full sun. And with so many things to see and do in Seattle, you may lose track of how long you’ve been catching those rays. So slather on the sunscreen, especially if you find yourself out on the scenic waters of Lake Union or along the Seattle waterfront.
