Things to Do in Seattle, Washington

People say I visited Seattle at the right time because the weather was great and everyone was out and about to enjoy the sun. I went around August last year and now that it’s about -2℃ there now, I’m so glad I was able to experience sunny Seattle. If you’re a winter kind of person, I’m sure you’ll love to go there now— but since I’m a tropical baby, I won’t be able to last more than 3 hours outside my room. Anyway, here’s a list of what you can do in Seattle. I was only there for three days but I enjoyed my time balancing touristy stuff and family time.

While on our way to see the famous Space Needle, we checked out Sonic Bloom by Dan Corsen that was commissioned by the Pacific Science Center. It’s a cool art installation made of steel, fibreglass, custom photo voltaic cells, LEDs, sensors, interactive sound system and energy data monitoring. There are a total of five flowers and each flower has its own distinctive sounds when you approach it. And it lights up at night!

The international fountain! Yep, water explodes up in the air making everybody extremely wet— unless you run for your life. Lol. Spot my niece with his daddy playing near the fountain.

The Public Market Center at Pike Place Market. Everything here is amazing!!!!! You can find a lot of vintage items, fresh flowers and yummy food inside. I really enjoyed my time here because you can spend several hours and not be bored.

I even saw the first ever Starbucks branch and even took a photo outside. Touristy mode on lol. Too bad I wasn’t able to go inside because the line was crazy long and I was so impatient. Heh heh.

The famous Gum Wall. It’s an entire brick wall full covered in used chewing gum in an alleyway just under Pike Place Market. It sounds gross, but it’s something worth seeing. The entire street smells like chewing gum and you can find so many millennial taking photos here, including me lol. And of course I also left my used chewing gum on the wall.

Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room is definitely a must-visit in Seattle. They have a tasting team and the master roasters experiment until they unlock each coffee’s inherent flavour qualities.

They change their coffee menu daily and they suggest what will best suit your tastebuds (if you’re a sweet coffee drinker, black coffee type, etc). I even got to see them roasting the beans live! What a treat.

And of course, I also went around University of Washington and it made me want to be a student all over again. Their campus is huge and their library looks more like a movie set up than an actual library.
