Best Places To Visit In Seattle
Seattle is a great place to come and visit, even though it is known for getting 9 months of rain and only a two week summer. It may rain a lot but those statements are just myths and thanks to the amount of rain we receive we have many naturally beautiful places to see. Here a just a few of what I think are the best places to visit in Seattle.
What I love about Mt. Rainier is that at the lower level of the mountain you can experience Spring like temperature great for camping, day hikes and family reunions. Get to mid level of Mt. Rainier to an area called Paradise and the weather drastically changes to winter. Lots of snow and a extreme drop in temperature great for hiking in the snow, skiing and snow boarding.
Pike's Place Market/Seattle Waterfront
Even though this may be considered two places being that they are in the same area I counted them as one. Pike's Place Market is a wonderful little farmer's style market. They sell handmade gifts and food and have a famous fish throwing stand that people all over the world come to see. The waterfront in Seattle has many shops ans a very unique shop call The Curiosity Shop that has some strange but cool artifacts found throughout Washington.
The Space Needle was originally built for the 1962 World's Fair. Today it still remains one of the best tourist attactions in Seattle. It is located in Seattle Center, a downtown area of Seattle and has a rotating restaurant at the top of the needle. You can also ride the monarail located in the same area and visit The Children's Museum and EMP (Experience Music Project).
So consider taking your next vacation in Seattle. Don't let the rumors of rain stop you. Seattle does not only have some great places to visit but is also known for starting the coffee craze thanks to Starbucks and being the birthplace of some of musics best: Kurt Coban, and Jimmy Hendrix, so come and see all Seattle has to offer.
