What to Do and See in Seattle This January

When you are traveling to Seattle this January, you will likely be interested in knowing what types of events will be worth your time. Not to worry – Seattle offers plenty of events and attractions all year long, and January is no exception. Here are a few of the top landmarks you should make time to visit, as well as some of the local events you may want to attend.


Viewing the Landmarks

If you haven’t yet been to Seattle – or if you have, but didn’t have time to go sightseeing – make sure that you take some time to visit a few of the landmarks for which this spectacular city is famous. The Space Needle is always worth seeing (the view will leave you breathless). The vibrantly hued glass gardens at Chihuly Garden and Glass makes a gorgeous sight to see in the wintertime. Pike Place Market offers a dazzling array of restaurants, shops, and virtually all of the delicacies you could ever hope to find in one place. The Seattle Public Library is an architectural delight, and the visit is free, of course. The Chinatown International District is a great place to eat a meal, and the view of Mount Rainier from a local ferry is sure to be one to remember.

January Events in Seattle

Once you’ve had a chance to experience some of the unique landmarks and activities in Seattle, you may also want to attend an event or two (or more if you plan to be in town for several days). You will certainly not be bored during your January trip!

If you enjoy cabaret, you won’t want to miss “Wonderland” on January 4. This sparkly winter show will be made available by the Can Can Kitchen and Cabaret – you can attend the show at 94 Pike St.

Those who enjoy a great art crawl will want to catch the Art Walk in Pioneer Square on January 5. This monthly party features fabulous food, as well as plenty of drink specials worth considering. You can join the party at 315 2nd Ave S.

One January beer festival you might not want to pass up is the Washington Belgian Fest at the Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center, located at 305 Harrison St. The exact dates for this event have not yet been released to the public, but you may consult the website for further details.

If you’ll be traveling with children, you will have much to consider. You might take the little ones to the Sheraton Seattle at 1400 6th Ave on January 1; there, they will be able to explore the fascinating scenes of the Wizarding World Gingerbread Village (the display is available throughout December, and the last day to see it will be the first of January) . Your kids may also appreciate the Festivals of Light at the Seattle Children’s Museum, which will be available through January 15. You may also bring the youngest boys and girls to Toddler Time at the Seattle Aquarium on several days in January. The Aquarium is located at 1483 Alaskan Way Pier 59.
