About Us




Seattle Southside Visitor Services (SSVS) is the leading tourism and destination marketing organization in South King County. The program is offered jointly by the Cities of Tukwila, SeaTac, and Des Moines--and is responsible for competitively marketing the area as an ideal travel destination for tourists who wish to explore Western Washington.

Seattle Southside is a national award-winning destination marketing organization. We believe that the best way to attract visitors is through a coordinated, cooperative alliance with our regional tourism business community .

SSVS represents 60 hotels and nearly 8,000 hotel rooms, more than 100 full-service restaurants and more than 5 million square feet of shopping. These attributes combine to make this region the perfect home base for leisure travelers, business travelers, and meeting and event attendees to experience Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
