The last time I saw her she seemed cold and wet, yet effortlessly beautiful. Seattle is a city with many colors and a fun drive away if you’re visiting from Vancouver, BC or anywhere on the West Coast. Visiting the Pacific Northwest is definitely the best during early summer or pre-fall.

It was my fifth time in Seattle, but definitely not the last. On every visit, I’ve learned to immerse myself into Seattle’s hipster, West Coast lifestyle and take back a new experience with me.

Within a drive of 20 minutes, you’d arrive in Downtown Seattle from the International airport or under 2 hours if you’re driving from Vancouver, Canada. It is an easily accessible city with tons of transporting options available.

Sharing a few of my most Instagramable places in Seattle, Washington and why you should visit them.

  1. Gas Works Park

Vancouver Top Travel Blogger_Travel Influencer_Jonathan_Visiting Seattle_Vancouver to Seattle_Places in Seattle_1 By far this is the most magical place to me. If your social feed is about pretty sunsets, picnics, flying kites or nature, this is your ground. You can get to capture those most stunning views of Seattle from the north shore of Lake Union. It’s a favorite local hangout spot too.

  1. Seattle Public Library

Why go to a library when on vacation? Let me ask you why not, considering the Seattle Public Library is a design wonder. The architect who designed the library definitely wanted it to be a standout, and it most certainly does, hence I ended up taking some pictures for the gram. I did notice a few local photographers in the hood too, come by to visit this place.

  1. Pike Street leading to the Pike Place Market

The popular Pike Street leads you right into Seattle’s Public Market. This long street runs vertically upwards towards the other touristy and Instagramable street and alleyways in downtown Seattle. Go check it out for yourself. It gave me a little ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ vibes too.

  1. Freeway Park

Just like anyone else, when I started researching Things To Do in Seattle, I bumped into an image of the Freeway Park. I told myself the architecture and design is quite edgy and notably Instagram worthy that said this city park has been around since 1976. If you’re lucky you can meet other Seattle Bloggers, street performers or artists chilling in the park during the day.

  1. The Pier at Seattle

Let me start by saying, please visit the waterfront in Downtown Seattle during sunset. The crimson pink sunset, views of West Seattle and the Elliott Bay look stunning. You can either, soak in the views of the pier, walk around capture shots of the Seattle Great Wheel, enjoy fish and chips or meet local artists. The city does come alive during sunset and the illuminated decors add more drama to your photographic experience.

  1. W Hotel and Downtown Seattle

Any place around Downtown Seattle is definitely worth your shot. It ‘s a great location and you get the best views of the city from here.

During my stay at the W Seattle, there were times I didn’t want to step out of the room, only because the city was where I stood. It was picturesque in every possible way.

  1. Olympic Sculpture Park

 Vancouver Top Travel Blogger_Travel Influencer_Jonathan_Visiting Seattle_Vancouver to Seattle_Places in Seattle_18

The Olympic Sculpture Park is one of Seattle’s newer attractions. I think it’s beautiful for everyone whether you want to capture images for the gram or just to have a great time. Art/ design enthusiasts might even love the diverse installations around. You can wander around the park and enjoy fabulous views of the city.

  1. Take a ferry boat ride 
“I have a thing for ferry boats”, this is what Derek Shepherd 
would say. If you’re a fan of Grey’s Anatomy like me you’d 
know what I am talking about.

A ferry ride is a great way to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of Seattle on a sunny day with a different lens. You can get around places with the Washington State Ferries as well. The Ferry connects Downtown Seattle to Bainbridge Island, Bremerton and beyond. Also, if you’re me then you’d be reminiscing everything you watched on Grey’s Anatomy.

  1. Space Needle

The Emerald City, Seattle cannot be taken for granted when you’re staring at her from 520 feet (Observation deck). The Space Needle gives you a bird’s eye view of the entire city, breathtaking scenery of Mount Rainer, Elliott Bay, and notable Seattle attractions. This is definitely worth Instagram, and hence I am sharing this image (above) from my Instagram(www.instagram.com/@Jonathanho1).

In the mood for coffee at Starbucks Seattle

 There are a few other touristy things that everyone should do in Seattle, and I want to highlight them right away. Go get coffee at the very first Starbucks store, locate at the Public Market it definitely takes you back time. While you learn about the coffee culture and browse through the market. Don’t forget to check out the museums, amazing nightlife scene and the array of impeccable restaurants.
