35+ Fun, Cheap and Free Things to Do in Seattle

Okay, so Seattle is not exactly a budget destination, BUT you can still see quite a lot of the city without spending a penny (or few pennies) on attractions if that’s what you want.

To help you plan your Seattle itinerary, I’ve grouped sites and activities on this list geographically as much as possible.

From gorgeous flowers to amazing produce and from artisanal foods to fine hand crafts, you’ll love exploring every inch of this amazing place.

You’ll find places to enjoy the sea air and views like at the new Pier 62 or Waterfront Park (located between the Seattle Aquarium and the Seattle Great Wheel).
