The RTA created the holiday travel guide to promote convenience for travelers leaving from Sea-Tac Airport as well as to showcase all things holiday related in Seattle Southside.

Along with the countless other family friendly activities in the area, Seattle Southside makes for the perfect pre-trip holiday adventure.

The guide features several dozens of Seattle Southside’s finest restaurants, attractions, and shops including but not limited to: iFLY Indoor Skydiving, The Museum of Flight, Westfield Southcenter, The Spa at Cedarbrook Lodge, Seike Japanese Garden, Salty’s at Redondo, Star Coffee, The Scotch & Vine, and many more.
