Travel Guide for Things To Do In & Near Seattle

Visit the famous Pike Place Public Market, one of the oldest and largest operating public markets in the nation. Be sure to stop at the Gum Wall to stick a wad of gum on the infamous wall.

Stay at the iconic Hotel Sorrento, a quick 10-15 minute walk from Capitol Hill, shops, restaurants and bars. It is considered to be one of the most haunted places in Seattle and the countries thirteenth most haunted hotels.

Take the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island – be sure to take the earliest ferry to enjoy a stunning view of the Seattle skyline. We then drove around Olympic National Park, stopping at Hurricane Ridge, Hoh Rainforest, and Ruby Beach to view the vast environments offered in this National Park. If you have more time, I highly encourage you spend a day exploring Bainbridge Island – a cute, small city connected to Seattle by a ferry.

Visit Starbucks Reserve Seattle Roastery and enjoy a cup of fresh coffee with a breakfast pastry.

Enjoy a birds eye view of Seattle at the Skyview Observatory.

Spend a day at Cascade Lake in Moran State Park.
