Seattle Travel Guide - Must-See Attractions
Seattle is a major coastal seaport and the seat of King County, in the U.S. state of Washington. Seattle lies on seven hills including Capitol Hill, First Hill, West Seattle, Beacon Hill, Magnolia, Denny Hill and Queen Anne. The Kitsap and the Olympic peninsulas along with the Olympic mountains lie to the west of Puget Sound, while the Cascade Range and Lake Sammamish lie to the east of Lake Washington.
The most important places to visit in Seattle are: The Space Needle (an iconic feature of Seattle's skyline. The view from the top is stunning with a revolving restaurant, undoubtedly Seattle's most famous landmark), Mount Rainier (towering over Seattle, it is 50 miles from the city. There's a national park with camping and hiking activities), Pike Place Market (one of Seattle's most popular attractions. The farmer's market is over 100 years old and still maintains local flavor), The Seattle Aquarium (located on Pier 59, the Aquarium showcases a wide variety of colorful marine species), Pioneer Square (relive Seattle's history in the city's oldest neighborhood. It's packed with exciting night clubs, restaurants and galleries) and many more.

Bremerton Ferry ⛴ - Seattle Day Trip
SUPPORT US AT
The Seattle–Bremerton ferry is a ferry route across Puget Sound between Seattle and Bremerton, Washington. Since 1951, the route has primarily been operated by the state-run Washington State Ferries system, currently the largest ferry system in the United States. Kitsap Transit also runs passenger-only fast ferries service on the route.
The Seattle–Bremerton ferry route was once known as the Navy Yard route. Before ferry service, the route was served by steamships and steamboats, such as the Inland Flyer. The sternwheeler Bailey Gatzert, once considered one of the most prestigious vessels to operate on Puget Sound and the Columbia River, was converted to an automobile ferry and as such became the first ferry to run on the Seattle-Bremerton route. Another vessel to run on the route was the unique streamlined ferry Kalakala.
From 1986 to 2002, Washington State Ferries operated passenger-only service on the Bremerton route using specialized high-speed boats. After the service was cancelled, Kitsap Transit contracted with private companies to operate a similar service for several years, and later debuted its own service, Kitsap Fast Ferries, on July 10, 2017.
The route from Seattle departs from the Washington State Ferry Terminal on the central Seattle waterfront. Assigned to the route as of July 2017 were the Super-class ferry Kaleetan and Olympic Class ferry Chimacum
Visit Snohomish County Washington
Snohomish (sno-HOH'-mish) County is located in northwest Washington State, nestled between the sparkling blue waters of Puget Sound and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains. Snohomish County begins 12 miles north of Seattle, a little under 100 miles south of Vancouver, and a short ferry ride away from the San Juan Islands or Olympic Peninsula. Snohomish County is ideally situated for exploring the entire Pacific Northwest.
We have some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery in the United States, forest and mountain wildlife sanctuaries, unlimited opportunities for outdoor fun and artistic pursuits, and the best coffee west of Italy. Our economy is thriving thanks in large part to being the home of industry giant Boeing's 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner assembly plant.

4:23 A glimpse of the Space Needle through the Belltown section of Seattle
Belltown is the most densely populated neighborhood in Seattle, Washington, United States, located on the city's downtown waterfront on land that was artificially flattened as part of a regrading project. Formerly a low-rent, semi-industrial arts district, in recent decades it has transformed into a neighborhood of trendy restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, and residential towers as well as warehouses and art galleries. The area is named after William Nathaniel Bell, on whose land claim the neighborhood was built.
In 2007, CNNMoney named Belltown the best place to retire in the Seattle metro area, calling it a walkable neighborhood with everything you need.
Belltown is home to the Art Institute of Seattle, Antioch University, Argosy University, the Seattle School of Theology & Psychology and RealNetworks Headquarters. It lies directly west of the Denny Triangle neighborhood, where online retailer Amazon is constructing three office towers to house its downtown headquarters, and where the Cornish College of the Arts is located.
