Downtown: This is where it all goes down in Seattle. Start your trip off at the waterfront and take in the views. The Pike Place Market is a must. It's the oldest running farmer's market in the country. Stop in at the original Starbuck Coffee shop while you're there.
Space Needle: Every visitor should take a ride up the needle on a clear day. It's the city's most iconic landmark and offers some spectacular views of the city and surroundings from the top.
Art: Seattle has a number of great museums but if you only visit a handful, start at the Seattle Art Museum. It has a collection from around the world, including some local art as well. The Seattle Asian Art Museum is also noteworthy.
