5 Unique Things to do in Seattle

23rd October 2018

Step out of your comfort zone, ignore the busy tourist attractions and get ready for an unforgettable time in the Emerald City!  To help you to do all of this, our travel expert Jennifer has compiled her top 5 unique things to do in Seattle that will make your holiday unforgettable!

  1. Navigate The Underground City

In 1889, the Great Seattle Fire destroyed 31 blocks of the city. As a result, Seattle rebuilt itself in a completely new way! Streets were elevated one to two stories higher than they previously were. Thus, the city effectively rebuilt itself on top of the underground, leaving behind various passageways and rooms, which run underneath the streets of Seattle. Today, it has become one of the most interesting historical spots in the city! Want to explore the interconnecting tunnels of Seattle? There are a number of underground tours on offer which start from just $20 per person.

The fishmongers of Pike Place Market have become quite popular around the world for their unique way of conducting business!

Get your phones out and be ready to record because this is something you do not want to miss!

  1. Rent a Hot Tub Boat

If you really want to really see the city of Seattle in a unique way, why not rent a hot tub boat on Lake Union? Yes, you heard us right! A hot tub boat! Each vessel can accommodate up to six individuals, so be sure to bring your friends along for a fun, relaxing and unique boat ride along the harbour! It wouldn’t hurt to get a great Instagram video as well.

  1. Visit The Fremont Troll

Unlike what you were told when you were younger, monsters really do exist! They live around the corner, in the shadows and even beneath city bridges. Under the Aurora Avenue Bridge, Seattle houses its very own monster! The Fremont Troll was built in 1990 and has become a unique sight to curious eyes. Visitors are able to climb around the sculpture, take pictures and appreciate it for all that it is.

  1. Kubota Gardens

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle in exchange for some peace and quiet, Kubota Gardens is where you need to be! This 20-acre Japanese style garden is located in the Rainer Beach area and has brought a little taste of Asia to America. Founded in 1927 by Fujitaro Kubota, this hidden beauty is still maintained by his grandsons, keeping the family name alive. Why fly to Japan when you can walk from Seattle?

Favourite Destination: Royal Caribbean make it so easy, service on board is top notch, nothing is too much trouble, especially for the cabin attendants who go out of their way to make you feel right at home. One of my favourite aspects on board is the food! Whether you want to keep it casual and or go all out for a fancy meal every option is covered. My favourite route has to be the Eastern Caribbean itinerary, it’s a laid back and the scenery of the beautiful Caribbean islands is stunning. My favourite time of the day is sunset, we usually sit up on the pool deck and have a Pina Colada before dinner. A cruise is really the most hassle free holiday you can imagine, the attention to detail on board really stands out.
