Seattle

Seattle is already a beautiful city. It’s a lively urban landscape surrounded by an abundance of natural scenery. A place where the people are diverse, happy, and take pride in their city. During the holiday season? Seattle’s charm is magnified immensely. Here’s why…

The Seattle Center is the epicenter for holiday happenings. It’s already the city’s 74-acre hub for arts, education, tourism, and entertainment. The holiday offerings include an ice rink, a little old village with a moving train, ice sculptures, and a plethora of art displays and musical performances. Of course, you couldn’t go wrong with a visit up the Space Needle to check out all of the holiday lights. For more info on this five-week celebration, visit the Winterfest website.

The world’s largest light maze takes over Seattle’s Safeco Field through December 30th. Take in a series wondrous light creations as you find your way through this 30-minute holiday maze. The stadium is a full experience complete with food, vendors, ice skating, live music, and Santa. So plan for two hours if you want to take it all in. Tickets start at $19.99 and go up to $64.99 with the VIP options and group rates. For more information, check out the Enchant website.

Westlake Center is a hub for holiday cheer. You’ll first notice the big, bright 3,600-bulb Macy’s Star (which has a popular lighting ceremony in late November). Then you’ll hear the old-fashioned carousel — why not take a fun ride while your donation supports park activity? Then you can stare and awe at the giant Christmas tree. Bonus shopping: in addition to the normal shopping center stores, there will also be a holiday market with 20+ artists selling handmade crafts and gifts. Check out more holiday events in Seattle at the city’s downtown website.


As you can see, the Emerald City overflows with holiday spirit. From the annual Macy’s Holiday Parade to their Festival of Trees, Seattle goes all out with holiday season celebrations. Happy Holidays!

Cheers,
