Eat, See & Do: Seattle, Washington

pike place market

Seattle–the land of Starbucks and the Space Needle, where rain pours often and grunge lives on forever. This iconic city is known for many things, offering a culture that can be enjoyed via cuisine, attractions, and entertainment destinations.

Whether you call Emerald City home or are thinking of laying down roots in this haven in the Pacific Northwest, here are a few activities and hotspots to add to your Seattle to-do list.

EAT:

Seattle’s relationship with the sea is a strong one. There are a number of iconic eateries and restaurants that serve fresh-caught, expertly prepared fare from the nearby ocean. If you’re craving a delicacy that comes in its own bowl, head to The Walrus and the Carpenter in Ballard for oysters on the half shell. Maximilien in Pike Place Market is known for their memorable happy hour mussels, bathed in white wine, garlic, and parsley. Craving crab? Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar will delight with their simple cooked, chilled, and cracked Dungeness crab.

SEE:

One of the prime reasons to move to Seattle is its combination of both culture and nature. You can brunch by day in the city skyline and then embark on an afternoon hike with views of Mt. Rainier. When you’re eager to lace up those hiking boots, these local trails will provide stunning scenery as well as a refreshing workout. Speaking of views, Seattle has one of the largest ferry systems in the country. Embark on a day trip to a seaside town and relax amongst stunning ocean backdrops on the way.

DO:

We would be remiss to not mention Pike Place Market. Considered one of the best farmers markets in the country, it’s home to farmers, craftspeople, artists, small businesses, and fantastic restaurants. Arrive hungry and prepare to make room for dessert at this historic gathering spot. For art enthusiasts, a visit to SAM is a must. The Seattle Art Museum is not only home to fantastic exhibits, but it also offers public programs, performances, and film screenings.
