What to See in Seattle

We recently enjoyed lunch at Ivar's Acres of Clams restaurant on the Seattle Waterfront. It's a classic seafood restaurant and has become a Seattle landmark. In the front lobby you'll see one of those brochure stands common to all places popular with tourists. There you will find all kinds of information on the attractions of the Seattle area. We found one publication that seemed especially well done showing 33 Premier Attractions around town. Worth checking out if you're planning to visit the Emerald City.

One side shows a regional map with the 33 attractions ...

Here are the details ...

Here's our pic of #1 on the list.
Highly recommended, very popular.

Most people say #8 is "Amazing"

#21 The Seattle Aquarium is the ninth largest aquarium
 in the U.S. by attendance and among the top five paid
 visitor attractions in the Puget Sound region.

#25 If you see one thing in Seattle, see everything ... Space Needle!

The other side is a map of downtown showing the location of the attractions ...

We don't get any compensation for recommending Ivar's, but we'll do it anyway. It's one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. An added bonus is watching the cross-Sound ferries come and go. Their Seattle terminal is right next door.

Have you visited our city?

Closing thought ...
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.

  2. Hmmmm....many things to do/see. I also might have to stop at the Museum of Glass. That quote was on my kitchen quote wall for a while. It is very true.

  3. Tourism is what makes the world (city) go round. I was involved with making a bird trail map in this area. It's a great map but I'm not sure how much it is used.

  4. Well well, John! I so enjoy visiting you here. Never been to your city, but you sure do it proud! Thank you for sharing! Aloha!

  5. Some of the most beautiful countryside in the world and not a mention of one hiking trail. Oh, my.
