Great value flights to Seattle

Seattle is known for its thriving music scene and chilly winters, but there is more to this diverse city than meets the eye and it’s becoming a popular holiday destination for all kinds of visitors. This North American city has a spectacular skyline and its Space Needle is perhaps one of the most iconic tourist attractions in the US, giving incredible panoramic views over the entire city. The Space Needle isn’t the only place to catch a view though and the gigantic Washington State Convention Center plus the pretty Kerry Park both offer impressive vistas over Seattle and even the Olympic Mountains on a clear day.

Seattle is well-known for its music scene with famous rock gods like Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain calling the place home. The 90s grunge scene was started here and you’ll find plenty of reminders throughout the pumping bars and clubs. If you enjoy art, there’s an abundance of great museums in the city including the highly regarded Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum as well as the huge and eclectic Seattle Art Museum.

More about Seattle

No trip to Seattle would be complete without taking to the chilly seas for a boat tour and you can embark on a ferry from one of the many piers along Seattle’s windy coast. Hop on a boat across to the rural Bainbridge Island where outdoors types will be thrilled at the wilderness hikes. If shopping is more your bag, don’t miss the historic Pike Place Market where thousands of shoppers and tourists descend to see fishermen juggle their catch and local farmers sell their organic produce. Also stop by the Starbucks there – it’s the first one in the world and a great place to unwind with a warming coffee and a selfie.

When you’re feeling a bit peckish try one of Seattle’s famous hot dogs – they come topped with cream cheese for an indulgent twist on an American classic. If you’re feeling fancy, book yourself a table at a seafood restaurant and opt for the salmon – Seattle is well known for this succulent freshly caught fish. Whether you’re into art or the outdoors, music, food or just taking in the sights, Seattle is a fantastic choice for a holiday somewhere a little different.
