1 Day in Seattle, Washington

In May 2019, my husband and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary. We have always wanted to see Alaska, and that is where we decided to celebrate our special milestone. We toured Alaska by cruise, and the ship left out of Seattle. Click here to read about our Alaskan cruise. We have family that lives about an hour away from Seattle, so we spent a day/night with them. The next morning, we got up and headed our way to spend 1 day in Seattle.

Space Needle

It wouldn’t be a trip to Seattle without visiting the Space Needle. I don’t mind heights, but as a child I had a strong fear of elevators. I grew out of that fear, but I have to say that I was a bit nervous about going into an elevator that goes up that high up. It’s a long way down if something happened. I didn’t let that fear bother me though, and really enjoyed the view from the top. There were so many exciting things to see being that high above the city. Many of the apartment buildings had roof top terraces where you could lounge. They even had grassy areas for you to walk your dog. We also saw some amazing murals that were on the roof of the buildings.

One of the levels of the space needle had a rotating floor with a glass bottom, which was very exciting. If you get motion sickness, you may want to opt out. It’s not that it goes fast, it just might affect you with the slow spin and seeing through the floor. At least that was why my husband skipped that portion.

On the way out, you can explore the gift shop and even do a virtual reality experience that is included with your ticket. My son did it and I believe it was a bungee jump.

Museum of Pop Culture

Just a short walk away from the Space Needle is the Museum of Pop Culture. There were so many amazing exhibits to view in a short period of time. While we only did a few hours, I can see taking a long day at the museum or even two days to really take it all in.

Some of our favorite exhibits were the Lord of the Rings, The Princess Bride, Mario Bros., Phantasm, Nirvana, the music room and the guitar sculpture. They always have a changing exhibit, and while we were there it was Queen (the band). The featured exhibit is not included in the general admission ticket. As much as we love Queen, we unfortunately didn’t have time to tour the exhibit.

The Public Market

Our feet were hurting dearly by this point and we were so tired, but only having one day in Seattle, we crammed it all in. The Public Market is somewhere that you really should visit at least once when you are in the area. It’s the famous market where they do the fish throwing. They don’t do it as frequently as they did in the past. We didn’t even see it, but we did see the fish market. There were so many other wonderful vendors in the market. We saw florists who did arrangements that were so beautiful. Other artisans included jewelry makers, artists, butchers, and varied food vendors. For lunch we ate at The Crab Pot where we had delicious Dungeness, King, and Snow crabs.

Tacos Chukis

We are big fans of tacos and came across Tacos Chukis on Yelp, so we chose it for dinner. It did not disappoint. I have never been a fan of corn tortillas, but Tacos Chukis changed me. My tacos also had the most delicious avocado sauce on top, and I don’t usually like avocado anything. It’s a simple shop that only offers main dishes such as tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and Mexican sandwiches. They don’t offer sides such as rice, beans, or chips. It’s not a problem though as their servings are enough to fill you up.

Amazon Go

We just walked out! We had heard about this market and were excited to see what it was all about. Amazon Go is a small shop that has pre-made meals, and other convenience items. You have to download the Amazon Go app and login before you begin shopping. Once you enter the store, you open up your app and begin shopping. Simply put what you want in your bag, and walk out when you are done. There is no need to stop at the check-out line. In fact, there is no check-out line in the store. I am not sure the technology behind it, but there is something in the store that knows what you put in your bag and charges it to your account.

As you can see, we crammed an extremely large amount of stuff into a one-day period. We like to see it all and we were only there for one day. We live on the east coast, so it is not a place that we visit frequently. You could easily take my one-day plan to Seattle, Washington and turn it into a 2-day itinerary.
