As the largest city in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is home to a plethora of sights and experiences. At the forefront of Seattle's tourist attractions is the Seattle Space Needle, built in 1962 as part of the World's Fair. At its highest point, the needle is 184 metres tall and on a clear day (though they are rare), boasts some fantastic views of the city.

But there is plenty of action to be found on the ground as well. The city's Olympic Sculpture Park is a perfect example. What was once a barren industrial site is now one of the city's most beloved areas, a green space filled with a variety of sculptures, set amongst the scenic background of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound. For an even better view of the Olympic Mountains, take the ferry out to Bainbridge Island. Once there, the hiking trails of the Bloedel Reserve offer a great chance to spot Pacific Northwest wildlife, or you can simply browse the galleries and shops of Winslow.

Back on the mainland, locals will tell you not to leave town without seeing the flying Salmon at Pike Place Market. While the fish are actually thrown, it all adds to the bustling atmosphere of the markets, where over 100 vendors sell everything from artisan cheeses to homemade soup. The markets are also home to the first original Starbucks, a testament to the city's passion and lust for quality coffee.

Though they may have the first Starbucks, locals now turn their nose up at chain store coffee, opting rather for boutique and organic blends. Locally brewed beers and IPAs also have a very loyal following, as does the organic and slow food movement. Treat your tastebuds to a trendy meal and brew like only Seattle can offer at one of the restaurants, cafes and bars found in Georgetown.
