seattle: never been. need input, ideas, suggestions, tips, etc.

Jump to last reply

i have never been to seattle and its on my list of possible destinations to visit.

im the type of traveler that likes to visit places where i dont need a rental car to get around..i simply consider dealing with a rental car to be a hassle: extra expense, insurance, possible parking meters/fees, getting lost, vehicular vandalism, theft, wreck, etc.

you get the idea.

for example, i recently went to san francisco and had a blast there. although their transportation wasnt the world's finest..it did the job and got me everywhere i needed to go., and im fine with just that, as long as its somewhat efficient and dependable.

so, im soliciting the advice of those who have keen knowledge of seattle on the local transportation system. the pros and cons of it, and any recommendations.

im open to any lodging suggestions that would place me in the epicenter of the transportation hub, and/or near a transportation line. im also wanting to know if there is a rail system or subway that exists there, especially one that connects the airport to the downtown/tourist areas.

other than the space needle, and pike fish market, i really have no clue what else there is to do in seattle.

i like museums, shopping, entertainment, nightlife, restaurants.

im also specifically interested in the international district, and was wondering if it incorporates other cultures other than the chinatown district? if not, why else would it be referred to as "international district"?

idealistically, id like to go when the weather is mild, and not cold..so im thinking of visiting in the summertime, just dont have any dates set at all.
