Seattle attractions – in and around

When I refer the city Seattle, I always consider the near by cities as well (Bellevue, Renton, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah) because they also have some good attractions and they are all ~20 miles from Seattle.

* Downtown Seattle attractions; many shopping malls around Seattle (South Center, North gate, Alder wood, Bellevue Square, Westlake Center, Pike Place, North Bend outlet, UW Village, Seattle Premium Outlet) – you can save some $ with their coupons – name explains it

* Bainbridge Island via WA ferry (Fay Bainbridge State Park is a good place to see Seattle skyline)

* Day trips: San Juan IslandsMt Rainier, Mt St Helens, Olympic National Park, Tacoma, Portland

* Snoqualmie falls, Leavenworth, Steven Pass, Wenatchee, Lake Chelan – Cascade loop (

* April – Tulalip festival in Mt Vernon; combine with La Corner, Anacortes, Chuckanut Drive

* Ocean Shores – you can drive in the beach sand

* Big four ice caves near Granite Falls –

* Mt Rainier gondola in Crystal Mountain resort

* If you can travel to Canada then Vancouver and Victoria BC could be a weekend trip
