The Best Things To Do In Downtown Seattle
Excitement Around Every Corner

In the center of Western Washington and on the eastern shore of Puget Sound, Seattle's setting is spectacular, with views unmatched by any other city in America. The 1962 World's Fair put downtown Seattle on the map as a major metropolitan center and boosted the cultural and economic growth that has since spread across King County into Redmond, Bellevue and Everett. It also left Seattle with the Space Needle and Seattle Center, now the home of diverse arts, cultural and recreational things to do. Boeing and more recently Microsoft, Starbucks and Amazon.com have contributed to the sophisticated economic climate and character of the city.

Today, Seattle is filled with distinctive neighborhoods offering hip hotels, restaurants, shops, nightclubs and an espresso stand on almost every city block. Weather doesn't keep Seattleites or visitors from enjoying well-known downtown Seattle attractions like Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, Seattle Center and the waterfront as well as the recreational and cultural downtown Seattle activities the area has to offer. In summer, gray skies generally give way to blue, with mild temperatures for baseball at Safeco Field and annual events like Seafair, the Northwest Folklife Festival and Bumbershoot.
