Sure, a rain jacket is useful. But know this: Seattle’s total annual rainfall is actually less than a number of other U.S. cities (including Jacksonville in sunny Florida). When you’re in the Emerald City, you’ll be thankful for those regular mists and the accompanying mild climate; they make Seattle one of the greenest cities around, with lush parks and vistas on all sides.

But visitors to Seattle don’t just flock here for the great outdoors. They come for the music, culture, lifestyle, coffee and attractions. If you’re planning a trip to the Emerald City, here’s a list of the most popular things to do in Seattle.


  • Space Needle

    Space Needle

    Since its construction for the 1962 World’s Fair, the Space Needle has become both an internationally recognized icon and Seattle’s most popular attraction.

    What to Do
    Visitors should leave time for a meal in the SkyCity restaurant: In only 47 minutes, the revolving eatery makes a complete 360-degree rotation.

    What to See
    From its hilltop perch, the Space Needle actually seems taller than its 605 feet (184 meters) and – thanks to free telescopes – gives visitors the chance to zoom into downtown or catapult themselves toward the Cascade and Olympic mountains.

  • Pacific Science Center

    Pacific Science Center

    Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2012 (the Space Needle also turns 50 in 2012), the Pacific Science Center continues to engage visitors – especially young ones – through a variety of personal experiences.

    What to Do
    Children gravitate to the Insect Village and Body Works (where Calorie Bikes calculate energy generated).

    What to See
    The biggest draw may be the Tropical Butterfly Village, where those wearing yellow and red easily attract fluttering friends.

  • EMP Museum

    EMP Museum

    Formerly called Experience Music Project | Science Fiction Museum, the dramatic, fluid lines of the Frank O. Gehry-designed building that houses both museums is a must-see in and of itself.

    What to Do
    Climb aboard a space station simulation and then have a ball with sci-fi memorabilia, movie costumes, photos and hands-on exhibits.

    What to See
    Bounce to performances shown on the world’s largest indoor video screen and then channel your inner Jimi Hendrix (a Seattle native) as you rock out to your own composition in Sound Lab.

  • Seattle Aquarium

    Seattle Aquarium

    The 7th most-visited aquarium in the United States, the Seattle Aquarium features more than 380 species of birds, fish, invertebrates and marine mammals.

    What to Do
    Visitors can gently touch certain marine animals in the Life on the Edge tide pool or talk with aquarium divers.

    What to See
    The Underwater Dome, a spherical undersea room surrounded by 400,000 gallons (1,514 cubic meters) of water.

  • Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour

    Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour

    The Spirit of Seattle’s one-hour narrated tour offers a unique vantage point from which to view many of the city’s sights with ease.

    What to Do
    Relax and enjoy the skyline while someone else does the navigating.

    What to See
    Pike Place Market, Olympic Sculpture Park, the Space Needle, Safeco Field and Qwest Field, to name a few.

  • Woodland Park Zoo

    Woodland Park Zoo

    Hosting nearly 1,100 animals, the Woodland Park Zoo is nationally recognized for its commitment to creating environments that are true to the animals’ natural habitats.

    What to Do
    Bring kids to their own special place: the Zoomazium, an indoor, nature-themed play space.

    What to See
    Hippos and giraffes roam on an African savannah, and birds swoop freely in the Tropical Rainforest dome.

  • Museum of Flight

    Museum of Flight

    Looking like the fanciest airplane hangar ever made, the Museum of Flight doesn’t disappoint.

    What to Do
    Exhibits include the first Air Force One aircraft and the original Boeing manufacturing plant.

    What to See
    You’ll be looking up, with jaw dropped, in the six-story T.A. Wilson Great Gallery, home to 39 historic, full-size aircraft, many of which – including a Douglas DC-3 – appear to be flying by.

  • Pike Place Market

    Pike Place Market

    This historic market, now more than 100 years old, was designed to bring regional farmers and consumers together. Over the past century, however, it has also grown into one of the most popular things to do in Seattle.

    What to Do
    Be sure to snap a photo with Rachel, the bronze pig that serves as the market’s mascot.

    What to See
    The market is a feast for the senses, with salmon flying, flowers in a riot of color, and the heady aroma of freshly baked goods.

  • Ballard Locks (Hiram H. Chittenden Locks)

    Ballard Locks (Hiram H. Chittenden Locks)

    Thanks to Army Corps of Engineers district chief Hiram Chittenden, boats have had an easy route from Lake Union and Lake Washington to the Puget Sound for nearly 100 years.

    What to Do
    Stand atop swinging walkways to watch the vessels’ progress.

    What to See
    Visitors have a special viewing window for the fish ladder – a 21-step structure that helps fish safely move to and from saltwater to freshwater.

  • Washington Park Arboretum

    Washington Park Arboretum

    Covering 23 acres (93 hectares), the arboretum showcases more than 5,500 different plants from around the world.

    What to Do
    Visit the Japanese garden that features a copper-shingled tea house and 11-tier pagoda.

    What to See
    Though blooms can be found year-round, spring brings an impressive display along the Rhododendron Glen and Azalea Way, a .75-mile (1.2 km) path.
