Things to Do in Seattle

The city of Seattle is nicknamed Emerald City thanks to its lush green space and thousands of acres of parks. The amount of greenery in the area ensures you have plenty to explore outdoors. Outdoor activities are not the only ones on the list, though, as there are numerous museums, historic sites, and relaxing spas to visit. There is something in Seattle for every occasion.

Savor the Arts

The Seattle Art Museum helps you appreciate the arts. View nature landscapes, migration paintings, abstract art, and more at the exhibit. Some collections remain the same while others change periodically to allow room for further exploration of the arts. The Asian Art Museum focuses on Asian artistry and artists to provide a unique perspective.

Tour the Historical Sites

Seattle is filled with historical sites to visit. The Dearborn House is one possibility, located at 1117 Minor Avenue. The home began in 1907 as a single-family residence and later got transformed into professional offices used by medical practitioners. The Phillips House at 711 E Union St originally came to fruition in 1902. It has since been reconstructed as affordable housing, turned into 11 separate units for renters.

Explore the Outdoors

Spending time outdoors is a must for many, with the hopes to get out for the day and enjoy the sun. You can do so easily in Seattle thanks to the many acres of forests and parks. Discovery Park features a beach, miles of trails to walk, and plenty of scenery to view. Boating access is available in a portion of the land, allowing you to get out onto the water if you desire.

Visit Sports Arenas

Visit CenturyLink Field to watch the Seattle Seahawks play. The city’s football team plays in the NFL. If you’re in the mood for baseball, watch the Seattle Mariners at the Safeco Field. They practice at the Peoria Sports Complex, which also houses the San Diego Padres.

Fair Time Fun

The Washington State Fair offers plenty of fair time fun. Famous singers grace the stage each year, including the likes of Lady Antebellum, Steven Tyler, and the Casting Crowns. The main festival takes place in September, but a Spring Fair gets held at the site as well in April. Motorsports Mayhem, a classic coaster ride, fried fair food and more keep guests coming back for more.

Ready to Relax

After enjoying time at the fair, museum, park, and sports arena, you’re probably ready to relax. Head to one of the Seattle spas and get pampered.
