Since I already have wandered in Seattle a few times I can be a little tour guide. I have my favorite spots where I always go when I am down town. In this article I tell you what you can do in Seattle. The details in the tourist spots.

Pike Place market

This is my favorite place in Seattle. I do not know how I should describe it exactly. It has an old vibe because this is one of the oldest places in Seattle. A market with all kinds of small businesses and a lot of people. From the outside is already quite a lot to see and if you walk through it you see even more! And you can even go inside and then you discover even more shops.

My favorite place to eat something on the go are the mini donuts or the ‘sausage rolls’. You can find both when you stay under the big board ‘ Public Market Center ‘ look within and then in left the corner. If you’re on a pressure time are you see immediately a row who is waiting for the donuts.

First Starbucks

At Pike Place Market is the very first Starbucks. Because Starbucks begun in Seattle. It’s a very small shop where you could walk past so if there is no default row stood outside with people. You also can’t just go running in because it is full with people inside. So if you want a normal tea in the first Starbucks you have to come on a quiet day or be willing to wait in line long.

Gum wall

Under Pike Place market is the Seattle gum wall. As the name says it is a wall full of chewing gum. Super gross but also quite fascinating if you look at it. The gum wall is found under Pike Place Market. One time there is more gum than other times. They pick it for several months every so many weeks away.

The gum wall can be found when you get to the intersection of Pike Place Market direction the market condition and to the left. There is a street that runs down and if you follow it that it will bring you to the wall.

Pioneer square

Here is where it all started for Seattle. The oldest neighborhood of Seattle is very nice to take pictures and walk around. I walk through here sometimes to just look around, but not very long am because I find it not so interesting. It’s nice to get through it once or twice but more than that, no.

Greetings from Seattle mural

An artist makes in the US different graffiti on walls that look like postcards. Seattle has one 2231 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA 98121. It is a short walk from Pike Place Market and you have to look good because you can easily pass it.

Seattle City Pass

As much as possible, try to see in Seattle can be expensive. But they have a city pass that allows you to visit five attractions. You can, in 24 hours, 2 times up the Space Needle so you have a view over the city during daytime and in the evening. Further you can go to the Seattle aquarium, do the Harbor tour, choose between the Zoo (you need a car to go there) or museum of pop culture and you can choose between Chihuly Garden and Glass of the pacific science center.

Kerry park view point

The most famous point to see the Seattle skyline. If you see Seattle in a movie then you can see the skyline probably from Kerry Park. Or if someone in Seattle live outside then it will probably be at Kerry Park.

Kerry’s address is 211 W Highland Park Dr, Seattle, WA 98119. Both day and night the view of the city is very pretty and you can make your perfect instagram photos there.

That’s my walk in Seattle. What I prefer to see and where I prefer to go. What are your favorite places in Seattle?
