Seattle Holidays

City skyline meets emerald hills and snowy peaks

This funky, laid-back, alternative city with a beautiful, natural backdrop means that a holiday to Seattle has something for everyone. Spy the majestic Cascade Mountains, duck into Pike Place market for some local produce and watch the ‘flying fish’ early in the morning or a short ferry ride will take you to the Kitsap Peninsula for some award winning breweries. If you want to step back in time, head to Pioneer Square; Seattle’s oldest neighbourhood, bustling with galleries, shops and restaurants. 

Home to the original Starbucks, Seattle is a coffee lovers dream. There are now countless coffeehouses and cafés filling the air with their fresh-roasted aroma of the city's favourite drink. Seattle is a fantastic family destination; head to 'The Seattle Center' for museums, gardens and restaurants or head to the 'Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour' where you can explore the dynamics of flight and they even have a family zone, which is perfect for kids of all ages. For fabulous views across the city, head up the Space Needle; a 605 feet high observation tower, now an icon of the city or why not take a ride on the Great Wheel at Pier 57. Seattle is a city that loves its sports too; from the Seattle Seahawks football enthusiasts cheering throughout the match to the classic ballpark atmosphere of a baseball game, college sports to pro sports; head to a game to see for yourself. 

With the great outdoors right on your doorstep, you can explore three beautiful national parks within a few hours drive of the city - Mount Rainier, Olympic and North Cascades - cycle many trails, kayak around the San Juan Islands or take a ferry across the Puget Sound to Victoria; there really is no shortage of ways to get out and explore what mother nature has created. 

Don’t stop there: twin your Seattle stay with a trip to Vancouver Island for fresh ocean air, head to San Francisco for iconic landmarks and delicious cuisine or fly onwards to Hawaii for palm-fringed beaches and volcanoes.

Destination Executive

"Watch the fishmongers throwing fresh Salmon in Pike Place Market, but don't get too close or you might just get more than you bargained for. The atmosphere in the market when this happens is buzzing and brings in quite the crowd."
