Visiting Seattle & The Puget Sound

Things to Do

The Puget Sound is fantastic for couples or families on vacation, especially in summer. Don’t let the time of year stop you from traveling here, though.

In mostly alphabetical order, recommendations include visiting Bainbridge Island via Washington Ferry, touring Chihuly Garden & Glass, hanging at 
Gas Works Park for Lake Union views, riding the Great Wheel, boating on Lake Washington around UW, strolling Kirkland’s beaches and downtown, playing tourist at Pike Place Market or via Ride the Ducks*, watching Sea Fair, visiting San Juan Islands for orca tours, going to a Seattle SeahawksSounders or Mariners game, taking in Snoqualmie Falls, looking at views from the Space Needle, and/or touring Woodinville’s wine country .
