Extensive greenspace, numerous water bodies, and the surrounding mountains make Seattle one of the world’s most beautiful cities. It seamlessly blends an evolution from its rough and tumble growth during the gold rush period, through the development of the major industries and international shipping, to its present sophistication with a vibrant cultural scene and as the home of major technology-driven businesses.
Hopefully your schedule allows you to spend one or more days in Seattle before and/or after your road trip. Beyond its widely known attractions such as the Space Needle, gain a deeper appreciation of the area’s history and culture by visiting the Northwest African American Museum, the Olympic Sculpture Park, the Museum of History and Industry, Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, and the Wing Luke Museum.
Eclectic dining options and nightlife abound, and you are never far from a great coffee shop! Quirky neighborhoods in Ballard, Fremont, and Capitol Hill add to Seattle’s charm.
