Seattle is the largest city in the Northwest Pacific. People call it the “Emerald City” because of evergreen trees everywhere, and the breathtaking view of the Cascade Mountains. Seattle is an important business center in Washington State. The headquarters of the world's largest companies are located in and around the city: Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, Costco, Nintendo of America, Starbucks, T-Mobile. And all this against the background of the bright development of creative and musical scenes.

Seattle / Tacoma International Airport, SEA

There are four terminals at Seattle Airport. It is Washington's largest commercial airport. The main and central terminals are nearby, and you can walk between them. And the North and South terminals are connected by train.

If you decide to take a walk between the terminals, you can find many interesting activities. For example, take a walk in a small gallery and look at art. Or stumble upon one of the daily live music concerts. And if you really get bored, just go online via free Wi-Fi. By the way, this is one of the few airports where there are plenty of outlets, just look under the seats to find them.

But at the same time, you should know that there are huge queues at Seattle Airport, there are often flight delays and, in general, there can be extremely unfriendly staff. Just try to stay calm so that nothing spoils the trip.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

The fastest and cheapest way to get to the center is by rail. The light metro station is about 10 minutes walk from the terminal. The trip will take only 35-40 minutes and will cost $ 3.

Shuttle buses, which also carry tourists from the airport to the center, will cost much more. And at the same time they can form a route according to the wishes of travelers. A trip on such a bus will cost about $ 18.

If you want to get a taxi, feel free to call Uber or Lyft. Any of these options will cost less than the official taxi service. You will drive to the center in approximately 20 minutes. And the cost of the trip will be about $ 30, depending on the distance, weather conditions and traffic jams.

Seattle Sightseeings

Seattle grew due to fishing, deforestation, and coal mining. And the main customer of the city was San Francisco. But natural resources came to an end. At the beginning of the 20th century, the city began to reorient to the business environment. Now the largest technology companies are located here, money is pouring in and the city is rapidly becoming more interesting and diverse. Tourists will always find something to do here.

Pop Culture Museum

The collections of this museum address the most impressive moments in popular mass culture. And it’s not only about music, but even science fiction, cinema and many other pop-cultural moments of human life. All this is accompanied by innovative exhibitions and interactive installations. You can almost touch the pop-cultural history of the world.

Seattle Art Museum

Both the museum and its exhibits are perfectly combined with each other. All these smooth lines, light surfaces, plenty of light and absolute purity allow you to completely concentrate on art, without being distracted by external manifestations. The multi-level space is divided into various thematic exhibitions. Some here are constantly represented, while others are changing under the guidance of local curators. In addition, the museum has its own library and even a restaurant.

Pacific Science Center

This science museum was designed by architect Minoru Yamasaki specifically for the 1962 World's Fair. Here you can see in detail 300 interactive exhibits. And there is also a large IMAX cinema and an unusual Laser Dome. Even the most remote person from science will want to spend at least several hours here. Yes, less will not work, because you can touch everything, play mini-games and just have fun no worse than in some amusement park.

Pike Place Market

No matter how many museums you build, the market will remain the most important place in the city. Seattle’s iconic Pike Place market has long celebrated the first hundred years of its existence, and is not going to stop there. Dozens of small stalls and shops with local farmers' products work here. There are a number of restaurants with terraces overlooking the promenade of Elliott Bay. You can also buy souvenirs from local artisans.

Space Needle Tower

Another attraction built for the 1962 World's Fair has become one of the main symbols of the city. If in a movie or series they want to show that the action is happening in Seattle, be sure to insert a frame with this tower. At the time of construction, it was the tallest building in the city. The panoramic view still opens from here, and at the top there is a restaurant where you can enjoy this view during a meal. And around the tower there is a beautiful park, where various festivals and other activities are constantly held in the summer.

Seward Park

A huge 120-hectare park is home to many wildlife. For example, those same bald eagles, which are the official symbol of the United States. Several paths pass through the park, including a bicycle one. During the walk you will not only enjoy the views of the classic American forest, but you can also walk along the coastline and even look into the local art studio. And, if you're lucky, meet a couple of eagles.

What to eat in Seattle

Speaking of the obvious, there is always fresh seafood in Port Seattle. You can buy it directly from the fishermen on the docks, as some locals do. Or you can just go to one of the small restaurants on the waterfront and try the freshest oysters, crabs, rolls and more.

Like every American city, Seattle has its own hot dog recipe, which you must definitely try. Here the roll, in which the sausage is placed, is smeared with cream cheese. It sounds so-so, but in fact it turns out to be very tasty and perfectly replaces mayonnaise.

A very active Asian community has also contributed to Seattle's food culture. For example, they make here perhaps the best Vietnamese Pho Bo soup in all of America. And in Chinatown you can try amazing teriyaki. In general, any Asian food in Seattle deserves attention.
