May and mid-October usually have beautiful weather and fewer tourists, making them great months to visit. In our opinion, the best time to visit Seattle is from May to mid-October. Below, we’ve compiled charts for you with Seattle’s lowest and highest average temperatures.

Moreover, we have also prepared an average number of hours of sunshine in Seattle for each month.

Seattle is a seaside city, and it has the nickname Rain City, so you have to be prepared for rain even during summer. November, December, and January are the rainiest and foggy months, so visibility is poor, too.

Seattle RV Parks

It’s not easy to park an RV in Seattle. Car parks in the center are small and crowded. Similarly, there are no RV campgrounds in the city itself. There are only a few RV campgrounds in the area. The most important is to know that places fill up quickly in the season.

So, it’s worth booking a place at the campground in advance. The best idea is to leave the RV on the campsite and go to the city by public transport or taxi. However, parking our RV along Harbor Avenue was easy in the city.

Seattle Itinerary – Plan your trip with Seattle CityPASS

Before you start exploring Seattle, you should consider buying Seattle CityPASS, which helps you save time and money with this multi-attraction pass. It’s a great way to get discounted admission to many attractions and make organizing your trip easier.

This multi-attraction package includes access to several top city attractions and a 1-hour Argosy Harbor cruise. On the list are Space Needle, and Seattle Aquarium, too. Moreover, according to your interests, you choose from additional attractions, such as the Museum of Pop Culture or the Pacific Science Center.

We love this solution because it allows you to save a lot and avoid queues. Enter the date of your trip and the number of participants to check prices and book your cards.

Day 1 of Seattle Itinerary: Centre of Seattle

We divided our Seattle Itinerary into three days of sightseeing. It will allow you to enjoy the city, discover its main attractions, and get to know the best bars and restaurants. In the last chapter of this article, you will find a recommendation for the best places to eat in Seattle. We also tell you where to go for a drink.

The Space Needle

It is a great idea to start your trip from Seattle’s most famous landmark: the Space Needle. You may need to wait in line, so it’s best to do this early. You can buy tickets on the Space Needle website.

The Space Needle is a 605-foot tall tower. It was built for the 1962 World’s Fair. It has a futuristic appearance and UFO-like design. The Space Needle tower’s ground observation deck offers spectacular views of the city and the nearby Olympic Mountains, and Mount Rainier.

At the top of the needle are a cafe and a wine bar. However, the most exciting is The Loupe, a revolving glass floor that allows 360-degree views of Seattle. You can avoid the steep admission charge ($32.50 to $37.50 for adults and $24.50 to $28.50 for children ages 5 to 12) by purchasing a Seattle CityPASS that includes admission to additional attractions.

The Museum of Pop Culture

The Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) is dedicated to contemporary popular culture. It was founded by Paul Allen (Microsoft co-founder) in 2000 as the Experience Music Project. It’s located next to Seattle’s historic Space Needle on 325 5th Avenue N Seattle.

You can buy tickets online on the Museum of Pop Culture website, which is cheaper than buying a place. You can test your DJ skills in the Sound Lab. There are many possibilities for hands-on experiences and iconic artifacts in the fields of music, literature, television, and film.

The Museum of Pop Culture offers the largest collections in the world of artifacts, hand-written lyrics, personal instruments, and original photographs celebrating the music and history of Seattle musicians Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix.

Chihuly Gardens And Glass

The Chihuly Gardens And Glass is a must-see for those who want stunning Instagram photos and love art. It offers a look at the inspiration and influences that inform the career of artist Dale Chihuly.

Through the exhibition’s eight interior galleries, lush outdoor garden, and centerpiece Glasshouse, visitors will experience a comprehensive look at Chihuly’s most significant series of works. His work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide.

Chihuly has created more than a dozen well-known series of works, among them Cylinders and Baskets in the 1970s; Seaforms, Macchia, Venetians, and Persians in the 1980s; Niijima Floats and Chandeliers in the 1990s; and Fiori in the 2000s. The best idea is to buy tickets online. The ticket costs $32/$22 for adults and $19/$14 for youth.

Olympic Sculpture Park

The Olympic Sculpture Park, is free and open daily to the public park which consists of a 9-acre (36,000 m2) outdoor sculpture museum and beach. It is located along the Seattle waterfront. So, combining a walk in the park with the sunset on the beach is great.

Seattle Children’s Museum & Pacific Science Center

If you’re wondering what to do in Seattle with kids in the city center take them to Seattle Children’s Museum and to Pacific Science Center.

Seattle Children’s Museum offers a lot of fun and educational play experiences for kids. Children can participate in art, culture, and STEM/inquiry-based programming. Kids have a chance to develop creativity and hands-on exploration of the world around them.

You can buy tickets on Seattle Children’s Museum website. Admission is $12 for kids and $12 for adults.

It brings science to life and offers hundreds of interactive exhibits and experiences. You can buy your tickets on the Pacific Science Center website. General Exhibit Admission is $17.95 for youth (6-15) and $25.95 for adults.

Take a Guided Tour

Taking a guided tour of Seattle is a great idea to get the best detailed and interesting information about the city. A guided tour is also the best option if you have limited time to visit Seattle, like one day or a day and a half in Seattle.

If you have only one day in Seattle consider 3-Hour City Tour by Bus. You will get a perfect overview of Seattle on a guided tour covering almost 50 miles, visiting the city’s top highlights aboard a comfortable mini-bus.

It is also worth considering a cruise to see Emerald City from a different perspective. During this short but exciting City Harbor Cruise, you will see the panorama of the city from the water and take great photos from this perspective. This trip has also an affordable price, so it’s a great solution if you are on a budget.

Seattle Downtown

Day 2 of Seattle Itinerary: Downtown Seattle

Visit Pike Place Market and Enjoy Fresh Food

Your second day in the city is worth starting in the heart of Seattle. Pike Place Market—the 108-year-old farmers’ market is one of the most famous Seattle tourist attractions which draws in more than 10 million visitors annually.

It is famous for its fishmongers, produce stalls, craft stands, and specialty food shops. You can buy fresh and healthy products there. However, the best idea is to eat something on the spot. Sandwiches, fish, seafood, the choice is vast and everything smells and tastes delicious.

If you are a foodie fan it is good to consider the Pike Place Market: Walking Food Tour.

There is also a lot of live music and handcrafted items. We love this market. It’s a great place for shopping. Moreover, you will find the first Starbucks across the street from the market, so it’s worth grabbing a cup of coffee. It isn’t the actual first Starbucks, but it’s the ceremonial one.

Admire Seattle Waterfront

If you have only a day in Seattle, the Seattle Waterfront is a must-see. It’s the essence of the city, and walking along it is a perfect way to soak up its atmosphere.

You will find there the best seafood restaurants. You can enjoy the excellent views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. A great idea is to visit Seattle Aquarium, especially, if you are with kids.

Seattle Waterfront sunset

Pioneer Square Underground Tour

Pioneer Square used to be the heart of the city: Seattle’s founders settled there in 1852. The best option to feel the spirit of the place is taking a guided Underground Tour, which gives you the chance of walking its underground pathways which existed in the 1890s.

So, this unique experience takes you down below the streets into the tunnel system under the city. We love it as the price is affordable, and the adventure is excellent.

Pioneer Square

Visit Kerry Park

However, to see Downtown Seattle in all its glory, you have to leave it and move to the other side of the city. To have the best overlooks in Downtown Seattle you should go to Kerry Park. It is the best viewpoint in the city and offers fantastic sunset opportunities.

This small public park and viewpoint on the south slope of Queen Anne Hill is located along West Highland Drive between 2nd Avenue West and 3rd Avenue West. The park’s view is the most iconic view of the city skyline, with the Space Needle prominent at the center, Elliott Bay to the west, and Mount Rainier in the background if the weather is good.

Take a Tour

Do you like airplanes? So, visit Boeing Factory. It gives you an insider’s look at the Boeing factory, where airplanes such as Boeing 747, 757, 767, 777, and 787 Dreamliner are designed and built. It is a great adventure. Moreover, if you are a fan of airplanes is worth visiting The Museum of Flight. It is located at the southern end of King County International Airport (Boeing Field), in the city of Tukwila. It was established in 1965, and it is the largest private air and space museum in the world, it also hosts the most extensive K-12 educational programs in the world. You can buy tickets on the Museum’s website.

Day 3 of Seattle Itinerary: Seattle’s Neighborhoods

Seattle’s Neighborhoods offer much more than you can imagine. It is impressive architecture, great bars, restaurants, and shops. You can feel the spirit of the real city.

Take a walk on Alki Beach in Seattle

The Alki Beach Park is a long beach strip that runs roughly from 64th Place SW to Duwamish Head on Elliott Bay. Alki Beach is the site of the landing of the first white settlers in Seattle on a cold, stormy day in November of 1851. It’s a great spot for a long walk at any time of year to enjoy the sun.

It is full of joggers, rollerbladers, sunbathers, and bicyclists. So it is a perfect idea to rest from the street bustle. The whole beach offers spectacular views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, ferries, and sailboats. The Alki Beach was made famous in a scene from the romantic movie “Sleepless in Seattle” where Tom Hanks flies a kite with his son. So, start your day at Alki Beach to catch the sun.

Admire Seattle’s Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill is a charming residential district in Seattle. It is one of the city’s most prominent nightlife and entertainment districts and is the center of the city’s LGBT and counterculture, so it is worth visiting this part of Seattle.

You will find there the best bookstores, some great record shops, sample locally made ice cream, and confections. You will find plenty to do from visiting parks to listening to live music at some of Seattle’s most iconic and popular venues.

So, don’t miss charming Volunteer Park. You can visit Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park or the beautiful Japanese Garden.

The Crocodile in Capitol Hill has hosted bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Hendrix, and R.E.M. Today it attracts a range of artists from genres of hip hop through electronic to folk. So, if you have time, buy a ticket and add this place to your Seattle itinerary.

Seattle Itinerary – Take a picture of Fremont Troll

Fremont, which has affectionately dubbed itself the Center of the Universe is certainly a fantastic fun place to explore in Seattle. The Fremont Troll is one of the most famous landmarks in the city.

Located under the Aurora Bridge, the Fremont Troll is an 18-foot-tall sculpture of a troll grasping a full Volkswagen Beetle, which used to be a time capsule for Elvis memorabilia, in its hand. Don’t miss the Fremont Troll if you are with kids. Fremont offers much more.

You can see Fremont Rocket (a 53-foot Cold War rocket fuselage mounted on top of a building on North 36th Street and Evanston Avenue North), and the statue of Vladimir Lenin. Finally, you will find a signpost that marks the alleged center of the universe and tells you how far it is to many locations around the globe. It is located at North Fremont Avenue and North 35th Street.

All year round on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Fremont Sunday Market fills the streets, at the corner of 3410 Evanston Avenue North, with crafts, food, vintage clothes, antiques, and much more. So, if you are on Sunday it is worth going there.


Take a Tour from Seattle

In this section of the Seattle itinerary, we recommend the more remote Seattle neighborhoods, which are still perfect for day trips out of the city. Seattle is an ideal base to explore Mount Rainier National Park or Olimpic National Park, so consider those places in your Seattle itinerary.

If you have an extra day or more in Seattle or can see the main attractions in two days (it’s possible!), consider going outside Seattle. The surroundings are breathtaking. It is worth going for a tour outside of the city. Below are our three favorite places & tours: Snoqualmie Falls, Mt. Rainier National Park, and Olympic National Park.

Seattle Itinerary – Visit Snoqualmie Falls and Enjoy Wine Tasting

Snoqualmie Falls and Woodinville Wine Tasting. Snoqualmie Falls is so magical! It is a must-see during even a short trip to Seattle. And if you combine these breathtaking waterfalls with Washington’s wineries and wine tasting would be a perfect solution for spending a day. Do you remember the Twin Peaks TV series? An American mystery horror drama television created by Mark Frost and David Lynch that premiered in 1990. Do you remember Laura Palmer’s story? So, Snoqualmie Falls is the Twin Peaks series location! Don’t hesitate to go on this trip. The place will charm you!

Snoqualmie Falls

Visit Mount Rainier National Park

Mt. Rainier National Park Day Tour from Seattle. If a day or two is enough for you to see Seattle, go to Mt Rainier National Park. It’s a stunning place. Ascending to 14,410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. An active volcano, Mount Rainier, is the most glaciated peak in the U.S.A. The mountain is reflected in the water of the lakes surrounding wildflower meadows and forests. So, you can book your trip here. Mount Rainier is one of our favorite national parks in this part of the USA. We assure you that it’s worth adding it to your Seattle itinerary.
You can consider an organized trip or visit it on your own, depending on how much time you have.

  1. I loved this guide of yours for Seattle. I am preparing to be in US next year and saving every bit of information that I am coming across. This would be very useful in my planning. Thanks.

  2. Seattle seems like a great
    place for every kind of traveler. I like the different ranges of
    accommodations you have mentioned. Pike Place Market, the 108-year-old
    farmers’ market will be a must visit for me. The concert mentioned for
    third day is also in my list. Hopefully I can get there.

  3. I love Seattle, there’s so much to do and see both in the city and around! I especially love how close it is to nature, like in the Olympics and Mount Rainier. I was just in Seattle last year and I can’t wait to go back!

  4. Great post and great itinerary in your post. I have never been to Seattle, but the chance is big that I will use your itinerary if I would be there. Also, 5 Seattle fun facts are great to be included in your post. I don’t know that Seattle is the birthplace of Starbucks. I like to walk along waterfront, harbor, coastline, and beaches, so I would take my time to walk along the Seattle Waterfront and enjoy the atmosphere of the city. Before or after the walk, I would visit the Seattle aquarium as I love life underwater. 

  5. So many great suggestions here and Seattle is on my bucket list, too! I’d love to spend a weekend in a romantic B&B like the Gaslight Inn or the Mozart Guest House. For a longer stay, I might opt for the Capitol Hill Luxury Apartments. Either way, we’ll be checking out the Space Needle and Chihuly Gardens and Glass for sure. Great resource, bookmarking for future reference!

  6. Great itinerary!! Seattle has been on my list for a really long time and at last, I have a trip planned to Seattle soon this year so naturally, your post came handy to me. I love to add some of the points you mentioned and as a food lover, I definitely need to add Pike Place Market on my list.

  7. Ah Seattle always reminds me of Frasier, the television sitcom. Many years ago, I passed through on the  way to Canada. Unfortunately I only got to experience the Pike market which left a big impression. I have always wanted to go back to continue seeing the sights. when i do, your list is what i will take with me. Saved it!

  8. I find Seattle as one of the romantic cities to visit. (After watching Sleepless Nights in Seattle, LOL) Anyway, I agree that it has a lot to offer. We’d love to stay at the Four Seasons during our next trip. Thank you for recommending these tours. Will consider this when making our itinerary. 

  9. Ok, I literally never thought about the fact that there would be beaches in Seattle. All I think of is RAIN when I hear the name of the city, but to be fair – I’ve never been! The idea of a CityPass is a fab one – I have used those in other cities, and they are a great way to see the highlights. 

  10. Thanks for sharing! I’ve been to Kerry Park and Pikes Place Market, but not some of the other places, so I will have to check them out the next time I visit.

  11. What an excellent detailed itinerary for visiting Seattle & Attractions. We always enjoy camping in Washington and down the coast from home in BC Canada. Have always wanted to do the Boeing Tour. Definitely going to make a point on our next visit! Have bookmarked for future reference & guide. Great post! 🙂

  12. Seattle is one city in the USA I’ve always wanted to visit. The market would be my first stop as I’m a big foodie and have seen it in films. I’d also like to see the space needle and the Chihuly gallery. Hopefully I’ll get to visit one day.

  13. We have visited Seattle many times and every time we seem to find new treats.  Weather is certainly variable.  We have seen all ranges of weather except the winter.  We have done most of the downtown things.  So on our next visit we need to look at some day trips.  A visit to Mt Rainier Park is definitely something that would interest us.
