Updated: Apr 2

Planning a trip to Seattle but too overwhelmed searching for the right thing to put on your list? We get you! Seattle has a lot to offer and we have just the list for you. From beautiful city views to museums and even, Seattle’s ‘art project’, the Gum Wall.


1. Space Needle

This iconic landmark of the Emerald City definitely tops the list. A trip to Seattle is incomplete without visiting the Space Needle. At the observation deck which is 160-metres, witness the beauty of Seattle by spotting the tall mountains and the Puget Sounds. Don’t forget to click a picture amidst all the beauty!


2. Museum of Flight

Why not add some learning to the trip by visiting the largest air and space museum in the world!? Look at vintage aircrafts and even the Air Force One up close. Watch war stories coming to life and discover the working of a spacecraft by looking at their mock-up and scale models.

A must-visit for art lovers! The museum has eight galleries full of colorful glass sculptures made by the artist Dale Chihuly. You will be fascinated walking through this museum, wishing you could capture it all! You can even book a tour of the museum to learn more about the artist and his work.

5. University of Washington

The University of Washington is an architectural marvel that you should visit. The University looks beautiful during spring especially, because of the pink cherry blossoms. There is also an art gallery and a stadium inside the campus.

6. Gum Wall

Chew, chew and stick! Yes, that’s what it is famous for, sticking bubblegum on a wall! We wouldn’t suggest sticking one but definitely take a picture with the wall as the backdrop.

Fun Fact: The wall has been there for over 20 years now and has been cleared only once!

7. Seattle Great Wheel

We would suggest you visit the Great Wheel at the end of your trip. The best way to get a view of the entire city at once, reminisce all those memories of the trip, and hope that you will take a trip back again.
