  • The Space Needle was built in 1962 for the World’s Fair and was designated a historic landmark of Seattle in 1999. SkyCity, a rotating restaurant at the top, features Pacific Northwest cuisine and completes its rotation in forty-seven minutes (just in time for dessert). Make your reservations early!

  • Safeco Field is home to the Seattle Mariners and owns the largest scoreboard in Major League Baseball. The Mariners are owned by Nintendo of America, so guests are able to order their meals through a Nintendo DS app. Play ball!

  • Pike Place Market opened in 1907 and has an incredible view of the Elliot Bay waterfront. The Market is one of the largest tourist attractions in the world. The Pike Place Fish Market is well known for its employees throwing salmon to one another over the counter.

  • The Experience Music Project Museum was created by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2000. Popular exhibits cover pop culture, Seattle music history, horror cinema, the art of fantasy and science fiction literature.

  • Mount Rainier is an active volcano, although it has been quiet as of late (since 1894). Small groups of highly experienced climbers attempt routes through the Southeast end every year. However, this attraction is best experienced from a distance – easily viewed from Seattle on clear days.
