Seattle has made a name for itself through music. The first half of the 20th century saw the flourishing of a vibrant jazz scene, which included performers such as Ray Charles and Ernestine Anderson. The early 1990s were dominated by Seattle’s grunge music bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Seattle is also the birthplace of rock legend Jimi Hendrix. Visitors can get deeper into the sounds of Woodstock and grunge at the Museum of Pop Culture. The imaginatively designed museum-building is an attraction in and of itself.
Those who want to get an overview of Seattle’s great urban area, over Elliot Bay and Lake Washington, and the tight-knit conglomeration of skyscrapers, should ascend the Space Needle, one of the city’s most identifiable buildings. If you want to get to the heart of local history, stop by at the Pike Place Market. Seattle’s primary public market has over a hundred-year history and is the place where farmers and other small local businesses sell their product.
To get to the origins of the city over 150 years ago, make your way to Pioneer Square, Seattle’s oldest neighborhood and now home to hip art galleries, restaurants and cafés, as well as being the focal point of the city’s night life.
Should you want a reprieve from urban Seattle, Bainbridge Island is just a ferry-ride away from the city center. This is the perfect place for outdoor activities, whether it be hiking, jogging, kayaking or a picnic in the park and visitors get a beautiful view of the city.
