5 Affordable Things to do in Seattle

Looking for an extraordinary vacation in a city built on history? Check out these fun things to do in Seattle to make your trip unforgettable and affordable.

  1. Visit the Seattle Space Needle. The Space Needle is one of the most well-known Seattle attractions. Get a 360-degree view of the city from a higher vantage point than normal. The lower level features an all-glass floor, so you can see the city below you. The upper level features floor-to-ceiling glass for optimal views. General admission tickets are available online for under $50 per person. Included in the ticket price is a welcome photo and a selfie opportunity on the outdoor deck.
  2. Visit Pike Place Market. What started as Seattle’s original farmers market is now one of the most iconic tourist spots in the city. This nine-acre market features 225 small businesses of locally sourced foods, specialty foods, produce and more. Walking the market is free, you just need to bring money for the things you plan to buy at the various shops along the market. Don’t forget to take a picture with the Public Market Center sign while you’re there!
  3. Drink Pike Place® Roast at the Original Starbucks.™ While you’re at the Pike Place Market, stop by an important historical location for any coffee lover. The first Starbucks opened in 1971 along the cobblestone streets of Pike Place Market and is still serving fresh coffee daily. This may be the most crowded and popular Starbucks you’ve ever been to, as it’s an iconic space that shows how one small storefront can turn into a worldwide coffee empire with over 35,000 locations.
  4. Explore Seattle’s Underground. Seattle offers a lot more history and adventure than meets the eye. Some of the most interesting exploration can be found underneath the streets in underground passageways. These passageways were created in the 1890s after the city rebuilt on top of itself after the Great Fire of 1889. Learn about the history of Seattle as you walk underneath the bustling city on this tour. Tickets are under $25 per person.
  5. Relax on a Sailboat Cruise. Sit back and relax on a sailboat cruise tour across Elliott Bay as you enjoy the serene views of Downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier. The tour starts from Pier 56 on the Downtown Seattle Waterfront and gives you the most beautiful views of the city skyline, mountain ranges and Bainbridge Island. This water tour costs under $50 per person and lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
