When you get to Seattle, what do you plan to do? It is better to make a plan now and stick with it. Having that predetermined structure can help you not become paralyzed with indecision at so many things to do in Seattle. Do you want to see any comedy shows in Seattle? What about a few observation decks of the famous big buildings? Then there are some more famous sites to visit closer to the ground. And do not forget the food.
Maybe you can just save yourself the stress and book yourself a tour or two while you are there. However you want to do it, do not go to Seattle unprepared. You will miss out on some great history, culture, entertainment, and even legend.

No trip to Seattle would be complete without a visit to the top of the Space Needle. It is the perfect spot for photo ops of all 360 degrees of the city. It is also a great place for a proposal! Then head on over to the Seattle Waterfront and get your tickets to the Seattle Great Wheel, the huge ferris wheel there. That is another great opportunity for a gorgeous view of the city as you crest the apex.
Be sure to visit the cemeteries to get a look at Bruce and Brandon Lee’s graves, as well as Jimi Hendrix’s. You can visit the very first, original Starbucks location. And take your coffee out to the Aurora Bridge, where it is said that the Fremont Troll dwells beneath.
Consider picking up a Seattle entertainment guide for a list of all the fun in Seattle that you can have. There will be many opportunities for music or comedy shows in Seattle, as both are huge part of the art scene.
