Diversions - Things To Do In & Around Seattle

Sights in Seattle
Whether you’re here for an hour or a day, there is always something fun to do in Seattle. Pike Place Market is a must to get the true flavor of the city. You can also see Seattle from the water by renting a kayak or paddle board from the Aqua Verde Paddle Club or, if it’s a rainy day (yes, it does rain sometimes), head indoors to the Seattle Aquarium.

Museums, Music & Theatre
Seattle offers some wonderful museums and entertainment. We have the spectacular Paramount Theatre as well as the 5th Avenue Theatre.

Not sure where to go? Take a tour and let them do the work. See the city or head a bit further to one of the wonderful wineries in the region. A tour of Boeing is also just a short distance away.

Okay, sports fans, check this out. We have everything you can imagine.

Seattle offers some of the best shopping around. University Village is a unique outdoor shopping experience with many national brands, local shops and fantastic restaurants.
