Seattle Center & The Space Needle
ph: (206) 684.7200

The Space Needle, Seattle's iconic feature, glistens at a distance from downtown. Built for the 1962 World's Fair, it's stood as the crown of the downtown skyline ever since. Tours, complete with elevator trips to the top of the needle, are given daily by cheery, informative guides. The rotating restaurant, SkyCity, serving elegant Northwest cuisine, is a special treat, perfect for the visitor looking for a really distinct experience.

Though the Space Needle is the most recognizable part of the Center, there's much more here. Key Arena hosts Sonics games and top pop concerts, the Mercer Arts Arena gives opera and dance performances, while the Seattle Repertory Theatre puts on the city's best theater at Bagley Wright Theatre. Bumbershoot, the extravagant music party that ends Seattle's summer, happens every year on Labor Day weekend. Stop by the IMAX Theatre for some stunning high-tech movies, brush up your skating talent at the Skate Park, or walk over to EMP for a journey through rock history.

Washington Park Arboretum
40th Ave. E. & E. Madison | ph: (206) 543.8800
The Arboretum is the city's best urban retreat, with its 200 acres of woods and gardens containing over 5,500 plants from 75 countries. Open every day from 7 until dusk, it's great for romantic spring walks, cooling off on a hot summer day, or strolling through the fall foliage.
Hiram M. Chittenden Locks
3015 NW 54th St. [ Ballard ] | ph: (206) 783.7059
Salmon jumping and striving to reach their spawning grounds behind the Locks provide an impressive scene for Seattleites and visitors to this city alike. Watch the boats stream into the locks, walk through the chain of locks, fish ladders, and dam walls. The English gardens and parks of the Ballard side are made for warm-weather strolls. There are several seafood restaurants just outside the locks, and Discovery Park, a large park studded with trails, sand dunes, and seaside cliffs, is a short drive away.
Seattle Art Museum
100 University Street [ Downtown ] | ph: (206) 654-3255
The SAM stands firm as the Northwest's major art venue. The four floors host Asian art, with Chinese and Korean masterworks a special feature, European art, an exhibit space on the first floor, and African, Indian, and Aboriginal art on the third floor. The collection of Northwest tribal art, from totem poles to pottery, is extensive and world-class. SAM's store always has art books, posters, and assorted merchandise for museum-goers to take a piece of art home with them.
Pioneer Square
Between 2nd Ave & The Waterfront; from Cherry St. to King. St.
As Seattle's oldest and most ornate neighborhood, the Square is a welcome refuge from the traffic and noise of downtown. Stroll through Occidental Square, between Main and Occidental Streets, for a small taste of a European piazza, with galleries like D'Adamo/Hill and Carolyn Staley, and charming cafes like Torrefazione Italia. Or, browse for books at Elliott Bay Book Company, buy Oriental rugs at Turabi and Turan Rug Gallery, and find maps of anything you can set your eyes on, at Metzger Maps.
