   About Seattle

19CWB FEST 031 
Seattle is home to world-class museums, over 1,000 restaurant and bars, including 28 James Beard Awards, and has been recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature – one of only 29 in the world.
The future Waterfront Park will span 20 acres along Seattle’s downtown shoreline. A constellation of lush, open public spaces linked together by a pedestrian-oriented promenade.
Pier 62 is the first piece of Waterfront Park to open, Pier 62 is the city’s most scenic new cultural destination. It has stunning views of Elliott Bay and the urban skyline and an eclectic range of activities.

Space Needle

Built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the 605-foot-tall Space Needle quickly became an icon of the city that today is recognised far and wide. On the observation level, a 43-second elevator ride, you can see the doodle-on-a-napkin concept that led to the Space Needle design. From the top you have some great views of Elliott Bay, the Cascade Mountains, and even Mount Rainier.

Pike Place Market

Considered by many “the soul of Seattle,” the Market spans nine historic acres in the center of downtown where everyday locals and tourists alike shop, visit, eat and discover.

Founded in 1907, the Market is one of the oldest and largest continuously operating public markets in the United States and is brought to life by the hundreds of farmers, crafters, small businesses, and residents that call it “home”.

Seattle Art Museum

The Seattle Art Museum is the city’s largest museum dating back to the 1930s and housing a varied collection of artwork. The Olympic Sculpture Park, an outdoor extension of the museum is located near the waterfront and is free to visit.

Seattle Great Wheel

The Seattle Great Wheel has quickly become a fixture of the city’s skyline although it was only built in 2012. Enjoy three revolutions around in one of the air-conditioned gondolas to see the city, water, and mountains on the horizon.
