With its laid-back liberal attitude and coffee culture, Seattle has a quirky alternative dimension that endears it to almost everyone who visits it. With neighbourhoods like Fremont as eclectic as some of the icons that have emerged from the city – grunge music, Starbucks, and Frasier all have their origins here – Seattle is full of hidden surprises off the beaten track.

Seattle is also a shopper’s paradise, with the gigantic neon-sign clad Pike’s Place Market the best destination to buy fresh produce or sample scrumptious local cuisine. And once you’ve had your fill of tossed salad and scrambled eggs and fancy a change of scenery, the isolated Olympic Peninsula offers some tranquil respite. Alternatively, Vancouver is just couple of hours away by road over the Canadian border.

  • Soar to new heights at the Space Needle, Seattle’s most iconic landmark and observation tower.
