10 Must See Places in Seattle, WA
1. The London Plane: Part cafe, part specialty foods grocery, and part floral workshop. You can stop by in the morning for a coffee and a handmade croissant. Enjoy an array of salads, soups, and daily plates. You can also pick up groceries and a loaf of sourdough baked in the wholesale bakery located in the back of the building. If you’re headed to a party, there are flowers, soaps, etc. to share as a hostess or birthday gift.
2. The Walrus Bar: Cool laid-back atmosphere with delicious cocktails and a thoughtful menu. You'll love the environment and savor every bit. We recommend starting with oysters, the grilled bok choy salad, smoked herring terrine, pork loin, and treat your sweet tooth to the maple bread pudding.
3. Walker Rock Garden: A project of love created by Boeing mechanic Milton Walker and his wife Florence, the Walker Rock Garden is a local secret in a quiet West Seattle neighborhood.
4. Sound Garden: “A Sound Garden” is a huge musical instrument and art installation created by Douglas R. Hollis, on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Western Service Center campus.
5. Totokaelo Shop: Minimalist shop for women's and men's apparel and home. Totokaelo curated a beautiful and thoughtful selection of Japanese-inspired designs from top designers. A must visit for the fashion lover.
6. Museum of Pop Culture: Designed by Frank Gehry, the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum—locals call it the Blob—is a place where music and science fiction meet.
7. Kubota Gardens: Quietly nestled in Seattle’s Rainer Beach neighborhood, the peaceful Kubota Gardens were established by a Japanese gardener who wanted to bring the serene landscape design of his homeland to America.
8. The Palm Room: Looking for a unique hostess gift? The Palm Room sells plants and containers. They recommend choosing a potted design and let them guide you in assembling your own combination or perfect gift.
9. Carnegie Public Library: At one time the earliest branch of the Seattle Public Library system, the Ballard Carnegie Library dates back to 1903 when a grant from famous philanthropist Andrew Carnegie was used to finance its construction.
10. Molly Moon Homemade Ice Cream: We love this little shop. Molly Moon sources 90% of her ingredients locally and has a delicious array of flavors. They believe in doing good with every scoop - donating % of their profit to local nonprofits. Ice cream with a mission - we'll take three scoops, please!
