This is perfect for weekend trips or short business trips where you need to cram everything in after work hours. We absolutely think you’ll be left craving more, you’ll have to come back!

What is there to see and do in Seattle?

Day 1

Start by visiting Pike Place Market. Pike Place is a great place to be during the day because the market closes at 5pm. Peruse and shop the fresh product stands, arts and crafts tables, see the gum wall and make a visit to our little urban garden in the Spring and Summertime.

Continue your day with a visit to the Amazon campus where you can find the Amazon Spheres, an urban rainforest in the middle of downtown Seattle. Visits are available to the public on the first and third Saturday of each month with limited hours. You can check their guest visiting hours in Sphere’s website. And if you have a friend working at Amazon, they can take you in for a visit anytime during the hours they are opened.

Afterward, we recommend checking out 2nd Ave where you can visit the many bars and restaurants in the area. Visit Bath Tub Gin and enjoy a craft cocktail. Head over to List to enjoy their yummy truffle cream gnocchi and other tapas Italian Spanish-style dishes.

Day 2

Head up to Kerry Park where you can see an AMAZING view of the Seattle Skyline. For a better view, we recommend seeing downtown Seattle from Alki Beach in West Seattle.

From Kerry Park, walk down Queen Anne Ave and visit the many stores and restaurants in the area. If you’re looking for a good brunch spot, we have tons of restaurants in upper Queen Anne. To get to upper Queen Anne, head up Queen Anne Ave and you’ll run into a street with tons of restaurants, small artisanal shops, pet stores and more. We love the rotating menu and restaurant atmosphere at 5 Spot.

From Queen Anne, head down to the Seattle Center where you can see the famous Space Needle. You can set aside time to visit the MoPOP museum, visit the Friendship Fountain, Chihuly Glass Garden and maybe even take an elevator ride up the space needle for awesome 360-degree views.

At night, we recommended heading over to Capitol Hill to enjoy the party scene. There are tons of restaurants and bars that are open late night.

Day 3

Your last day in Seattle! We recommend checking out the Fremont and Ballard neighborhoods. These two neighborhoods are super hip and have tons of restaurants, bars and businesses to check out.

While in Fremont, check out the Fremont Troll under the bridge and visit the Sunday market where you can find locally-produced foods and crafts. They also have tons of antique vendors where you can buy some pretty unique stuff at great prices.

In Ballard, there is a good eclectic variety of restaurants and bars. It’s also a great place to have a cocktail outside in their al fresco dining patios. You’ll love the laid back charm of Ballard.
