Spring Break in Seattle

Welcome to spring break in Seattle at The Edgewater Hotel.

Located on the city’s iconic waterfront, The Edgewater is the only over-water hotel in the area. Nearby you’ll find some of Seattle’s most famous attractions, including the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, downtown shopping and major sports venues. We’ve compiled a list of what to do and where to go during your Emerald City spring break.

Fresh Seafood Pike Place

A Culinary Destination

In the downtown Seattle area, you can partake in various award-winning food tours to explore and taste delicious cuisines, discovering the history and culture of the region. These tours encompass tasting offerings from the city’s neighborhood restaurants, artisan and specialty food shops, Pike Place Market and Capitol Hill. Emphasizing fresh, local, organic and sustainable ingredients, these tours showcase the best hotspots and restaurants in Seattle.

Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market

Less than a mile away from the Edgewater, Pike Place Market is the city’s iconic destination for fresh produce, namely fish and flowers in the springtime. Merchants, farmers and vendors are very accommodating, often offering entertainment and samples. Explore the many layers that exist underneath the photo-worthy main level, where the crowds thin and authenticity shines.

Seattle Sculpture Park

Space Needle

Also less than a mile away from the hotel, the Space Needle is within walking distance, but you’ll want to make sure you bring your good shoes. The stroll from the Edgewater to the Needle is up some of Seattle’s famous steep hills, but the reward is one of the most iconic and recognizable landmarks in the world. Within Seattle Center you’ll also find the Armory, the Science Center and Climate Pledge Area where the Seattle Kraken and Storm teams play.

Seattle Aquarium

Seattle Aquarium

Less than a mile stroll down the waterfront will place you in front of the Seattle Aquarium, an iconic destination also located on a pier jutting out over Puget Sound.

Adjacent to the Seattle Aquarium on the city’s waterfront, the Great Wheel offers riders the chance to get a birds-eye view of Puget Sound, the San Juan Islands and the city. At 175 feet tall, the Seattle Great Wheel is the tallest Ferris wheel on the West Coast. We recommend hopping on board around sunset to witness the truly picturesque Pacific Northwest sunset.
