Seated on the shore of the Puget Sound and overlooked by Mount Rainier, Seattle is the largest city in the Pacific Northwest. Its skyline is dominated by the iconic Space Needle, and visitors to Seattle can get an incredible photo of downtown Seattle from the 360-degree observation deck at the top. Make your way to Pike Place Market, which offers a vast array of arts, crafts, and foods, including the fresh fish that are flung through the air between talkative fishmongers.

Seattle has been a music town for years, giving birth to bands like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Soundgarden. It’s still an awesome place to catch a live show with crowds of locals in venues like Columbia City Theater or The Crocodile. Visit the Museum of Pop Culture, with its unique and unmistakable design, to browse the interactive exhibits focusing on music, science fiction, horror, and fantasy. One of the main features of the museum is the famous guitar sculpture, made of over 500 guitars and stretching from floor to ceiling.
