Holiday In Seattle

You’ve been eye-guzzling cooking shows every night for the past six months, so you know it’s definitely time to take that holiday leave. You can’t bear being away from steady Wi-Fi and a nice strong cup of coffee, but you still want something unique and maybe a little on the funky side. Your solution: Check out Seattle packages and see where “the Emerald City” takes you.

Things to Do in Seattle

In Pike Place Market, streetside buskers provide the tunes, European bakeries provide delicious smells and small shops sell everything from comics to organic cotton sweaters to magic tricks. Put a few coins in Rachel the Piggy Bank, rub her snout and your trip will have good luck (or you’ll at least get a sweet selfie out of it). And if you’ve always wanted to see the world’s largest collection of giant shoes, a holiday is Seattle is the right place.

Had enough of fishmongers and fair-trade goods? Olympic Sculpture Park, just north of Pike Place, is a highlight of any Seattle holiday. Take a snap with a 14-m-tall head or just try to figure out what the big, red, metal sculpture is (hint—it’s an eagle). Plus, you’ll still get 360-degree views of the city skyline, Puget Sound and the surrounding mountains. Can’t argue with that.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Ready to make it rain on the streets of Seattle? If you think it’s all fleece vests and sandals with socks, think again. But if “quirky” comes to mind, then yeah, you’re right about that. Take one of lastminute.com.au’s awesome Seattle car hire options to the northern neighbourhood of Ballard for the funkiest indie boutiques and art galleries. But fashionistas, not to worry. You can still find the latest looks downtown.

You could have dinner at the top of the Space Needle with all the other tourists, or you could pluck a lobster right from the tank in Chinatown and have it sautéed up with some garlic and butter for the freshest meal around. Prefer your seafood on the half shell? Seattle holidays aren’t complete without eating oysters at the waterfront—just be careful who you dine with when these aphrodisiacs are on the menu! More of a nine-course, four-types-of-spoons kind of diner? Head to Downtown or Capitol Hill.

Hope you didn’t stuff yourself too much, because Washington holidays offer plenty of opportunity to bust out your skinny jeans (guys included). In Seattle, just head to Belltown. This trendy hotspot is all about lounges, bars and chillin’ out. If you just have to wear those towering heels though, Pioneer Square offers megaclubs, dueling piano bars, Old West-themed bars and more (yes, more!) all within a few blocks. One thing is certain: Your hangover can surely be cured by mac ‘n cheese and a Bloody Mary.

What’s Next?

Who doesn’t love a day that starts with an awesome brunch and ends with live music and mechanical bull-riding? No one, that’s who. Get a good caffeine buzz going, then check out Seattle holiday packages on lastminute.com.au. You’ll get great deals no matter when you book—though we can’t guarantee you won’t get thrown from that bull.

Hotels in Seattle

Don't get your knickers in a twist about reserving your Seattle hotel. lastminute.com.au lists more than 99 accommodations. Keep in mind though, the sooner you decide, the sooner you can start planning your adventures! (You'll likely save a bit of cash too.)

If you'd rather spend cash on adventures than on accommodations, the Pensione Nichols Bed and Breakfast and the Best Western Plus Pioneer Square Hotel are a couple of places you should check out. You may also want to look into the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle and the Seattle Marriott Waterfront. These upmarket hotels are for those who'd like to live a life of leisure and luxury while they're here.

Seattle is where you'll find Space Needle. If you want to stay within a short walk of this first-class attraction, the Hyatt House Seattle/Downtown is just 0.1 kilometres away. Another popular choice is the Kimpton Palladian Hotel, which lies 1 kilometre away.
