Trip Report Favorite Seattle Attractions

An article about the top ten attractions in the May 12, 2013, edition of The Seattle Times got me to thinking about my favorite attractions in my home town.

My top three, it turns out, are the Pike Place Market, the ferry to Bainbridge Island, and the Argosy Locks Cruise.

I round out my top ten attractions with the the Space Needle, the downtown retail core (centered on 5th Avenue and Pine Street), Pioneer Square art galleries, Chinatown International District, the Olympic Sculpture Park, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Museum of History and Industry.

I also especially like the Frye Art Museum (where i heard a great guitar recital yesterday), the Henry Art Gallery, and Woodland Park Zoo, which is as interesting to me for its well-cared for grounds as for its zoological displays.

For the performing arts, I like the Seattle Repertory Company, ACT Theater, Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera, Jazz Alley, The Triple Door, and several other organizations (such as the Seattle Chamber Music Society) that perform only from time to time.

Mt. Rainier is my top day trip from Seattle, and my other favorite destinations near Seattle are the Olympic Peninsula, San Juan Island, the North Cascade Loop, the Columbia River Gorge, and the Oregon Coast.

With the summer tourist season in view, I hope this will inspire others to share their favorite Seattle attractions, including some obvious ones that aren't on my list.
