Seattle is an absolute treasure and you will find yourself lucky if you ever find it on your business calendar.
A corporate trip to this area means the opportunity to see, taste and experience so many wonderful things.
This week we take a look at just the downtown area of Seattle, which is resplendent with landmarks and attractions.
What follows are just a few ideas for a quick jaunt you might be able to conquer between meetings or if you find yourself with the rare open day to yourself.
Now this is hardly exhaustive, so feel free to toss out some suggestions for the area.
Waterfront Park remains a great place to walk, contemplate and snap off a multitude of pictures.
It’s that much-needed respite during an altogether busy business trip. The best thing is that it remains relatively close to so many must-see attractions.
If you prefer to meander about and take in some amazing sights while you learn, then you can opt to stop in and say hello to various wildlife. Just don’t mention to them anything about all of the seafood restaurants awaiting just outside.

From appreciating the lively to the vividly colorful, take a brief stroll over to the Seattle Art Museum, which is home to so many ongoing exhibitions.
At the moment you can enjoy the brilliant work of Kehinde Wiley, which is on display until May 8.
Before you visit the iconic Pike Place Market, consider working up a hunger by staring at other people’s used gum.
Recently, the beloved gum wall went through a thorough cleaning. However, new additions are being placed lovingly on the wall as seen in the above Instagram.
This place seems made for bleisure travel, containing a bursting scene of entertaining options in a small area.
This also happens to be a great way to get acquainted with the city, diving into the farmers market, dining options and shops that illustrate what make this city great.
Now we wanted to keep this article to things in the immediate area, but the Space Needle and EMP Museum are accessible by the extremely cool monorail. And we just can’t pass up this transport located at the nearby Westlake Center.
As you can see in the above video, the EMP Museum explores a wide swath of pop culture.
It’s the kind of museum that nurtures creativity while entertaining its guests through interactive displays and ongoing exhibitions and events.
If you have the time, you can expect nothing less than a view of the city from 520 feet up in the Seattle skyline.
Take that moment to contemplate all you’ve accomplished in a relatively short amount of time.
