Things to do in Seattle
Four Points Downtown Seattle Center would like to welcome you to the Emerald City. We're centrally located around plenty of exciting things to do in Seattle.
- Pike Place Market - The market is perhaps one of Seattle’s most recognizable icons. Pike Place hosts more than 10 million visitors annually. Shop for fresh produce, seafood, or handcrafted treasures. If you get there early enough you might see the famous fish throwing.
- Space Needle - This major landmark is the symbol of Seattle. Ride the speedy elevator to the top for happy hour, or relax in the rotating SkyCity restaurant. From the top of the needle, enjoy the city skyline, as well as the Cascade and Olympic Mountains.
- SPECTRA New Years Eve - Set your new year ablaze with a spectrum of festivities, live entertainment, mixology, and an unmatched view of the fireworks at the Pacific Science Center's annual New Year's Eve party.
- Century Link/Safeco Fields - Enjoy a day at the ballpark. Cheer on your favorite team in Seattle’s SoDo district. The two parks are established side by side and both host an array of events from professional ball games to concerts and exhibitions. Experience the retracting roof at Safeco Field, or rock out to your favorite concert at Century Link.
- The Seattle Great Wheel/Seattle Waterfront
Visit the newest addition to the Seattle skyline. The Great Wheel is the largest observation wheel on the west coast, standing 175 feet tall. Enjoy the view of Seattle and Puget Sound in an enclosed gondola.
- Alki Beach - Just across the sound, in West Seattle, Alki Beach is a prime viewpoint for a panoramic skyline view. Grab a coffee and walk along the beach. The summer draws rollerblades, volleyball players, and sunbathers out to enjoy the sun away from the city life.
- Experience Music Project Museum - Also known as the EMP, this museum explores the history of music. If music is your passion, you won’t want to miss the EMP. The museum allows the visitor to experience music through interactive exhibitions.
- Capitol Hill- Nightlife - Explore one of Seattle's most lively urban neighborhoods. Whether you're looking for a hip lunch spot, a cozy coffee shop, or an entertaining bar scene, Capitol Hill has a reputation for being the best in Seattle.
- Seafair - If you're visiting in July or August, you can't miss Seafair! This annual festival brings thrilling events such as hydroplane races, the Blue Angels, and other water-sport activities. Perhaps one of Seattle's most popular traditions since the early 1900s, Seafair is a must-go, bucket-list event.
- Gasworks Park - Situated perfectly at the North end of Lake Union is Gasworks Park- a preceding gasification plant. It was the former Seattle Gas Light Company and was bought by the City of Seattle in 1962 when it became a public park. Gasworks depicts a perfect skyline view of Seattle from the northern perspective. In 2013 Gasworks was added to the National Register of Historic Places, after being nominated for more than a decade.
- Fremont - Spend the day in the quaint, artsy community of Fremont. Enjoy a delicious lunch, walk across the Fremont bridge and have your picture taken next to the giant Fremont Troll- one of Seattle's mascots. Heading out for drinks? You'll love the trendy bar scene in downtown Fremont. This neighborhood is perfect for a relaxing day of eateries and scenery.
