Tips from locals
University of Washington is Seattle's largest educational institution and home to some beautiful historic buildings. The campus makes for a beautiful walk.
One of the prettiest campuses in the world. Don't miss the cherry blossoms in 'The Quad' mid-March.
Most of my guests are coming to Seattle are coming because of the University of Washington.
The UW has a beautiful campus well worth your visit while staying in Seattle. Check out Red Square , Suzzallo Library, and see the Cherry Blossoms in Spring when the campus is filled with people snapping shots of the beautiful blooms.

“You can't come to Seattle and not visit Pike Place! They have beautiful flowers year round, fresh fish, live music, and lots of vendors. If you want to have a fish thrown over your head, just purchase any fish from the Pike Place Fish Market. ”

“Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo is fun for visitors of all ages, but particularly exciting for kids. The grounds are large, so wear walking shoes and plan on at least a half-day to see everything. There are cafes and restaurants inside the zoo, but you are welcome to bring your own food and drink inside, too. The zoo has an excellent blog featuring lots of pictures of their animals, especially newborns, baby gorilla, girraff, penguin chicks, and lion cubs.There's a petting zoo and farm area near the front, and feedings and shows throughout the day — the raptor show is particularly impressive. A free smartphone app allows you to plan your day and make the most of your visit. In summer, the zoo offers a popular concert series called Zoo Tunes, and in fall's Zoo Doo contest, locals actually enter a lottery to win animal manure for composting. Only in Seattle”
