Seattle is known for its fabulous summers. Whether this is your first time visiting this beautiful city, or you have family visiting from out of town, there are definitely some must see places Seattle has to offer. The last thing you want to worry about is navigating through an unfamiliar city to find all of these sightseeing gems. American Star Town Car is sharing eight must see sights this summer in the Seattle, Washington area.

Space Needle Restaurant & City Views

The Space Needle is one of Seattle’s most popular attractions. It was built for the 1962 World’s Fair. With an observation deck at 520 feet, the view of the city is unbeatable. It also has a restaurant at 500 feet that rotates 360 degrees while you dine. It has become one of the city’s icons and you can’t miss it.

Pike Place Market Shops

Pike Place Market is one of the country’s oldest and largest open public farmer’s markets. It has been open since 1907 and is a great place to get fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and other goods. It is located right on the waterfront and the shopping can’t be beat.

Downtown Waterfront Attractions

There is a broad sidewalk that runs along the Alaskan Way Viaduct with piers that jut out into the bay. On this Downtown Waterfront, the Seattle Aquarium is a favorite stop along with shops and great places to eat. This is also home to the Seattle Great Wheel that has enclosed cars that give you a fabulous view of the bay and city.

Bill Speidel’s Seattle Underground Tour

In 1889 the Great Seattle Fire took place destroying much of the city. The city was rebuilt but there are many underground passageways that are still there. These passageways used to be the main roads and storefronts of old Seattle. There you can take Bill Speidel’s Seattle Underground Tour and hear the stories of people who once lived and worked there.

Woodland Park Zoo Exhibits

With over 1,000 animals to see, the Woodland Park Zoo is a fun stop for all. You can see the animals get scheduled feedings and chat with the people that take care of them. This is an enjoyable place for families to spend the afternoon.

Gas Works Park

If you want to spend some time outdoors, the Gas Works Park has great biking and walking trails. This park is on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company and has parts of the original coal plant to walk around and view.

Experience Music Project (EMP) Museum

The Experience Music Project (EMP) Museum is located near the Space Needle and was founded by Paul Allen in 2000. This museum is dedicated to contemporary pop culture and has many exhibits and displays that are very interactive.

Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI)

This may not sound like an exciting attraction, but the displays of life in Seattle and the Puget Sound are a must see. It reopened in 2012 and has many multi-media displays and new galleries that are amazing.
