Five reasons to visit Seattle | Private jet charter

Seattle, located on the West Coast of the United States, is a city surrounded by spectacular nature. From the waters of Puget Sound to Mount Rainier National Park, Seattle is a hiker’s paradise. The city’s waterfront and piers, nightlife and cultural offerings also make it one of America’s most popular holiday destinations.

Pike Place Market

Probably Seattle’s most famous tourist destination, Pike Place Market by the waterfront has a huge array of seafood, veggies and fruit to buy. Stock up to prepare your own lunch, or head to one of the many local restaurants for delicious local cuisine. Then peruse the collection of unique speciality shops in the area including antiques, bookstores and craft wares all housed in a nine-acre plot.

Pioneer Square Historic District

As well as Victorian-era architecture, Pioneer Square also marks the legacy of Canadian indigenous peoples with a 60-foot totem pole. At Smith Tower, visitors can appreciate the scale of Seattle from the 35th-floor observation deck. Nearby, is the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. A novel viewpoint of Seattle is from below ground. Join Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour for a fascinating insight into the old city that lies beneath the modern streets.

Seattle Center and the Space Needle

Created as an exhibition for the World Fair in 1962, the iconic Space Needle and Monorail are now part of a larger entertainment area with restaurants, cinemas, and sports facilities. Visit the Chihuly Garden and Glass for impressive glasswork and get musical at the Experience Music Project. For 360-degree panoramic views over Seattle, Elliott Bay, and Mt. Rainier, take the lift up to the Needle Observation Deck.

Museum of Flight

Seattle’s Museum of Flight offers aviation fans an eclectic indoor and outdoor collection of aircraft and flight-related exhibits – both historic and modern. There’s a Concorde here, plus the first Air Force One and military icons. Inside, planes are suspended from the ceiling and the Lear and Space galleries focus on space travel. Take a Boeing tour from Seattle to visit the aircraft assembly plant.

Discovery Park

A wonderful green oasis providing respite from an often hectic city, Discovery Park is Seattle’s largest park and located on a promontory overlooking Puget Sound. As well as superb water views, visitors can see the mountain ranges from here, many of which are snow-capped all year. The natural habitat: forests, fields, and coastline also provide a rich and supportive environment for wildlife.
