FAQs about the Best Sightseeing Experiences Around Seattle
Is it better to stay in downtown Seattle or Seattle Southside?
It really depends. If you're looking for better hotel deals and a more family-friendly central location that is close to Seattle-Tacoma Airport (SEA), then Seattle Southside is the better choice. If you're in town on business or going to the Seattle Convention Center, then you might prefer to stay downtown.
Should I go on a sightseeing tour or rent a car while visiting Seattle?
There are a number of Seattle Sightseeing Tours that offer visitors a carefree, narrated experience that you wouldn't necessarily have otherwise. If you prefer to set your own schedule, take spontaneous detours, and pick your own sightseeing destinations, then renting a car would be the better choice.
Should I get a Seattle CityPASS to save money at major sightseeing attractions?
For families or small groups, the Seattle CityPASS is a great way to see up to seven of Seattle's top attractions for about half of what it would cost to see them individually. The pass is good for 9 consecutive days and includes five attractions; two are standard and then you choose the other three.
