Have visited this city twice during my assignment for Amazon.com. I think Seattle is one of most peaceful cities in US. Love everything about it except weather which mostly cloudy. You will die for sunshine here :-)

Seattle is a coastal seaport city and the largest city in the Pacific Northwest region of North America and the fastest-growing major city in the United States.The city is situated on a narrow isthmus between Puget Sound (an inlet of the Pacific Ocean) and Lake Washington, about 100 miles (160 km) south of the Canada–United States border. A major gateway for trade with Asia, Seattle is the 8th largest port in the United States and 9th largest in North America in terms of container handling. It is home to some of the major companies like Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon and Starbucks.

Pike Place Market, an open-air shopping haven. Started as a farmers market in 1907, you will find farm fresh produce (summer months), gorgeous freshly-cut flower bouquets, fresh fish, fine foods ,locally made crafts, and much, much more Be sure to watch the flying fish! The fish vendors will even package your fish purchase in dry ice for your travels home. Visit the original Starbucks and take photos with the vendors. Enjoy a 1-hour historical tour available daily. Check out the street performers, and put a dollar in the big brass pig. There are many cafes and restaurants in this area. This has been a favorite Seattle attraction for many years.

Climb 520 feet to the observation deck of Seattle's signature building, which is actually 605 feet tall, for spectacular views of the city and its surrounding area. For food and fantastic sights check out SkyCity, the tower's rotating restaurant that makes one complete orbit per hour.

For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill. A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

Enjoy the "view" cautiously. The bouncers in this joint are plentiful and dying for a reason to hurl you on the sidewalk.

The Museum of Flight is an expansive facility filled with all things related to flight.From the first primitive glider designed by the Wright brothers to the stealthy "Blackbird" capable of Mach 3 and an 80,000 ft ceiling - the museum has assembled a massive collection of flying machines.

Bill Speidel's Underground Tour is a leisurely, guided walking tour beneath Seattle’s sidewalks and streets. As you roam the subterranean passages that once were the main roadways and first-floor storefronts of old downtown Seattle, our guides regale you with the stories. It’s history with a twist!The tour begins inside Doc Maynard’s Public House, a restored 1890s saloon. Following a short intro, we’ll walk through historic Pioneer Square to three different sections of Underground—about three blocks in all

Walking along the Seattle Waterfront is a perfect way to soak up some Northwest atmosphere. Take in views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains while exploring Olympic Sculpture Park, the Seattle Aquarium, shops, and restaurants like Ivar’s, a local landmark, where you can watch the ferries load and depart while you eat.

It is about 45 minutes boat ride to Blaker Island. It is nice to see Seattle bay front view from boat. Once you get off boat you will have chance to see wild raccoon hunting his food near the deck. If you attending the show, you will be greeted with cup of steamed clam. It is very tasty. The buffet at Tillicum Village is tasty also. It is interesting to see how Indian "grill" salmon. The show is OK but it is nice to learn how Indian appreciate the nature. If you have time, it is nice to walk on the trail.
