Seattle has been called one of the fittest cities in the country, and the city has been generous with trails and paths for cyclists, runners and walkers. If you’re a lover of the outdoors, you’re not going to want to miss Discovery Park, a 534-acre natural park in the heart of Seattle, which includes two miles of protected beaches. That’s just the tip of the nature-loving iceberg, with popular destinations such as the unusual Gasworks Park, the gorgeous Washington Park Arboretum, and the beaches of Golden Gardens and Alkiat the top of the list. Or check out Ballard Locks, where you can see various boats traverse the locks and salmon climb the fish ladder to spawn. A trip to Seattle wouldn’t be complete without a ferry ride on Elliot Bay to get a great view of the city against a backdrop of snowcapped mountains. Or discover one of the many islands in the Puget Sound, with Bainbridge, Vashon and Whidbey Islands just a short ferry ride away.
Few visitors to Seattle miss a trip to the city’s most iconic structure – the Space Needle, a 605-foot tall tower with a rotating restaurant built as a central attraction at the 1962 World Fair held in Seattle. The needle sits in the middle of the Seattle Center, an enormous cultural center that hosts a wealth of entertainment venues and museums, including the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum Hall of Fame. Go to the AARP Travel Center to find cheap hotels near the Seattle Center and other cultural attractions. And, don’t forget, you can book your tours and activities through the AARP Travel Center, too.
If you’re a music buff, you’re probably already aware of Seattle’s robust and diverse music scene. It’s so robust, in fact, that no other city in the country has a higher music and dance attendance per capita. That’s a lot of music. And it’s not all about grunge, Seattle’s music scene offers world music, jazz, and singer/songwriter folk, to mention a few genres. Clubs and venues can be found throughout the city.
