Days spent with flying fish may not be common activities in most cities, but in downtown Seattle, soaring seafood is a way of life. Get in on the action during your trip to Seattle’s downtown district.
Your exploration of downtown Seattle will be a vacation long remembered.
If you’re in Seattle, it’s criminal to miss Pike Place Market, which features vendors selling everything from flowers to nuts to fresh local fruits and veggies. One of the biggest attractions is the Pike Place Fish Market, where a fishmonger will throw a purchased fish through the air to another fishmonger, who will wrap it up. Signs are posted to warn travellers of low-flying fish, so mind your head as you walk by. If a seafood extravaganza isn’t entirely your cup of coffee, head over to other downtown must-stops, such as the Seattle Art Museum and the stunning Seattle Public Library.
When selecting a hotel in downtown Seattle, consider the city’s blend of rustic and upscale tastes. Are you looking for hardwood flooring or plush carpets? Are you more interested in a five-star restaurant on the premises, or do you only care about the pool and gym facilities? Relax in the hot tub after a long day at the market, then crawl between crisp sheets for some well-earned rest.
If you’re ready to leave your usual routine behind and start exploring this vibrant city, book a Seattle hotel through Expedia. We’re here to make your vacation planning a breeze, leaving you more time and money to spend searching for souvenirs for your friends back home. Now that’s what we call a “flying” start to your vacation.
