​Holidays in Seattle​

Wake up and smell the coffee. That's what you'll be doing on holidays in Seattle, where the alluring aroma of the city's favourite drink hangs over it like the clouds atop Mount Rainier to the south. The home of Starbucks and the coffee revolution is a vibrant, quirky city filled with hundreds of buzzing cafés and bars, plus cool buildings, hip and historic neighbourhoods, and some stellar attractions.

But not all Seattle's attractions are man-made, since its setting is nothing short of spectacular. Wedged between the coastal inlet of Puget Sound and scenic Lake Washington, and ringed by mountains, the views are breathtaking. Watching the boats come and go on Elliott Bay with the peaks of the Olympic Mountains in the distance, or catching the sunset across the water from the Olympic Sculpture Park are sights you'll never forget.

All that access to the great outdoors makes for some fantastic activities on holidays in Seattle, which isn't known as the 'Emerald City' for nothing. There's a green space most places you look - and if it's not green, it's blue, with so much water around. That makes for great hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, cycling or any other activity you can think of, and you can be in one of the State Parks that surround the city in no time. Plus there's skiing in winter.

Back on the urban trail, there's lots to see and do in the city too. There's fantastic museums, while the assortment of animals at the aquarium, the Northwest Wildlife Park, and the Woodland Park Zoo will keep the kids happy. Shopping is pure pleasure, with iconic Pike Place Market unmissable, and once the sun is down, there's a fizzing music, bar and restaurant scene to explore. Never mind emerald; this city deserves gold-star status.

The Space Needle

Space Needle SeattleInstantly recognisable from the opening credits of Frasier, this Seattle icon stands 184-metres high. Take the lift up to the observation platform and drink in stupendous 360-degree views over the city and its surrounding bays, lakes and mountains. You can eat in the gently revolving Sky City Restaurant too.

Water, Water Everywhere

With two lakes and a coastal inlet, it would almost be a crime not to take to the water during holidays in Seattle. One of the easiest ways is to board a Washington State Ferry and take a day-trip to one of the islands across the bay, like buzzy Bainbridge Island or scenic San Juan. Or rent a sea kayak and paddle your own way around Lake Union or Lake Washington.



Mighty Museums

There's a whole bunch of high-quality museums to check out, including the Art Museum, the Asian Art Museum and the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture. Two more unusual ones are the striking Frank-Gehry designed EMP Museum, which celebrates music and pop culture; and the Museum of Flight, with planes past and present (including an early Air Force One presidential plane) and hands-on flying simulators.



Pike Place Market

Open 365 days a year, Seattle's farmer's market is a whirlwind of activity: a galleried orgy of food carts, flower stalls and artisan concessions, where fishmongers famously make fresh salmon 'fly' by throwing and catching them. There's also great dining and coffee here - including the very first Starbucks.



Party On

Once you've eaten in one of the city's multiple fine restaurants, there's no need to head home. Hit a microbrewery or bar, or check out the music scene. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Fleet Foxes all came out of Seattle, and there's always a new act to discover in the local clubs.
