For your next vacation, consider booking a trip to Seattle. Nestled between the Cascade and Olympic Mountain Ranges on the shores of the Puget Sound, Seattle is known both for its world-class dining and shopping as well as its natural beauty. Read more about the top things to do in Seattle below:
You can spend your days walking up and down the city’s hilly streets, popping into coffee shops, or walking through the stalls of Pike Place Market. If you want to spend a day outside of the city, the Cascade Mountains are only a short drive away and are full of some of the most beautiful hikes in the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle is also known for its arts and culture scene. As you walk along the streets you will see street performers performing folk music and artists painting fresh murals on the sides of buildings.
Benaroya Hall is a classy, Dale Chihuly-adorned concert hall in downtown Seattle. The concert hall is the home of the world-renowned Seattle Symphony. You can also see jazz musicians, pop acts, and musicals at the hall.
Benaroya Hall is known for its state-of-the-art acoustics, its elegance, and its prime location right in the heart of downtown. Directly underneath Benaroya Hall is the Great Northern Tunnel, where freight and passenger trains run through every day. However, the concert hall is protected by the rumblings of the trains and the traffic outside by floating on giant rubber pads.
The inside of the hall is full of elegance. The main lobby of the hall is an expansive room with large glass windows. Its centerpiece is a one-of-a-kind Dale Chihuly chandelier titled Crystal Cascade.
Benaroya Hall has an underground parking garage. The parking garage can be accessed on Second Avenue just south of Union Street. Parking is $16 unless otherwise noted.
If you are unable to attend a performance or want to learn more about Benaroya Hall, they offer free docent-led bi-monthly tours. Tours last approximately one hour and are recommended for guests aged 10 and older. You can sign up for a tour on Benaroya Hall’s website.
