The coastal seaport of Seattle is full to the brim with fresh seafood, marketplaces and fining dining, along with great museums and a thriving arts scene.
We caught up with Ann Peavey, Chef Concierge at Visit Seattle, who says you needn't be afraid of the rain in Seattle – get outdoors and explore the city!
Pike Place Market – Whether I find delis, cheesemakers, fresh fruits, bakeries, chowder shops or fish stores, I love nibbling my way from one end of this popular market to the other.
Capitol Hill – With local bars on practically every block, this neighbourhood is hotspot central. Try the speakeasy-style Knee High Stocking Co. or mingle with locals at Canon and dip into their collection of whisky.
Ballard Kayak’s SUP rentals – Seattle’s abundance of waterfront locations offers you plenty of ways to make a splash. Hire a stand-up paddleboard to enjoy some fun in the sun at Golden Gardens Park.
Mount Rainier National Park – With its waterfalls, lush old-growth forest, glaciers and scenic vistas, stunning Mount Rainer is ideal for a day trip.
Insider info – Be sure to visit the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) in South Lake Union. You’ll discover the history of iconic Seattle companies, from Eddie Bauer to Boeing.
