Visit Seattle

Seattle is two cities in one. It’s a world-class metropolis set within wild, beautiful natural surroundings, offering the best of urban lifestyle while embracing the rugged outdoors.

Many of Seattle’s top visitor attractions are within mere blocks of the Seattle Convention Center, including the Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Symphony, ferries, world-class restaurants and a historic theatre district. Three national parks lie within a two-hour drive of Seattle and the city is a gateway to the San Juan Islands, Olympic Peninsula, Washington Wine Country and British Columbia.
