Corporate giants Microsoft, Starbucks, Amazon, and Boeing have changed our lives through innovation.
Many of their ideas came to fruition in and around Seattle. Since its growth spurt in the 1960s, this seaport city in the Pacific Northwest of America has been a hot spot for lovers of technology, live music, coffee, beer, seafood, and the great outdoors. While the GFC rocked Wall Street and much of America, Seattle’s diverse talent base kept the city moving forward. Post pandemic, things seem ‘steady-as-she-goes’.
With a diverse array of urban pursuits on offer, and the shimmering waters of Puget Sound, evergreen forests, snow-capped mountain peaks, and the Pacific Ocean all within easy reach, it won’t be difficult to fill your time in and around the ‘Emerald City’. If you plan to tick off the main tourist attractions, purchase a Seattle City Pass and make a considerable saving. You’ll get fast track entry to the world famous Space Needle observation deck, Seattle Aquarium, and your choice of three other activities.
This Seattle city guide is packed with ideas for things to see and do. Enjoy your visit.
