So whether you find yourself in the Pacific Northwest for business or you’re just passing through, our Vaco Seattle office has shared  their recommendations and favorite places to Free Yourself in Seattle.

1. Experiencing the Pacific Northwest

  • Columbia Tower Skyview Observatory: A 360-degree view of Seattle and at 902 feet, its the tallest observatory in the Pacific Northwest – no hiking boots required.
  • Snoqualmie Falls is one of Washington state’s most popular scenic attractions. More than 1.5 million visitors come to the Falls every year. At the falls, you will find a two-acre park, gift shop, observation deck, the Salish Lodge and the famous 270 foot waterfall.
  • Ferry to Bainbridge Island: A great way to see Seattle on a sunny day, and Bainbridge is great for exploring as well! The island is home to seven artisan wineries, a brewery and an organic distillery. The vibrant village of Winslow, just a short walk from the ferry, features a number of restaurants and one-of-a-kind shops and a waterfront park.
  • Grab ice cream from Molly Moon’s in Queen Anne and take it to Kerry Park for an awesome view highlighting the Space Needle.

2. Tourism At Its Finest

  • Underworld Tour: A 21+ only tour of Seattle’s historic underground, with true tales of the city’s founders and legion of “seamstresses.” Comes with a cocktail at the end!
