All Information about Seattle
Seattle is the most popular and visited city in the Northwest of the Unites States. It is known as the birthplace of the Starbucks coffee chain, a unique coffee culture, friendly locals, and as the home of other major international corporations such as Amazon and Boeing. Seattle is also special because it has a unique mix of a thriving and modern urban center but is also surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural surroundings in the region with breathtaking mountains like the Olympic Mountains and Mount Rainier, lakes such as Puget Sound, and natural parks and green open spaces in close proximity of the city. This mix of landscapes makes Seattle a unique and unforgettable place to visit with an unlimited number of things to do and places to see.
Seattle draws in almost 10 million tourists annually and the number continues to climb. While the city has a large number of hotels and accommodations, a large number of travelers are choosing to get a vacation rental instead of a hotel room. This is especially true if they are traveling as a family or with a group of friends, making hotel rooms a very expensive choice. Vacation rentals offer more flexibility and affordability than hotel rooms and are usually have more private and relaxed options. Since the city is located near so much water with Puget Sound but also many small lakes and bays, many travelers are looking to get waterfront vacation rentals so they can take advantage of water views during their stay.
If you want to get views of two bodies of water, head over to the center of the city with Lake Union and Puget Sound. Look for waterfront vacation rentals in Seattle's downtown area where you will be able to get amazing views of the city, the water and the surrounding natural scenery, but also other incredible Seattle attractions such as the Space Needle, the Olympic Mountains, the Experience Seattle Music Project, Pike Place Market and the entire Seattle skyline.
Vacation rentals in Seattle's downtown area are on the expensive side because of their prime location close to everything but also with the water views, but if you look hard enough you may stumble on a good deal. Keep in mind that it's usually worth the price since hotels in this area are also very expensive and a vacation rental in most cases will end up being cheaper since it can be split up among members of the traveling group.
If you want to stay in proximity of the city to be close to the attractions, but not in the crowded downtown area, there are many secluded waterfront vacation rentals in Seattle's outer neighborhoods. Check out places such as Lake Forest Park near Shoreline, the Highlands, and properties near Bitter Lake. You can also look for beautiful vacation rentals and lodges near Burien and many other places near the Seattle SeaTac airport.
You can also get views of two bodies of water from Lawton Park and the Magnolia neighborhood which is just north of downtown Seattle. Here you can enjoy views of Puget Sound but also of Salmon Bay and Mount Rainier.
