Gay Seattle: Arts & Culture, Restaurants, and Outdoors


There's so much more to gay Seattle than just rain and grunge rock, though the frequent moisture did inspire Seattle's nickname, the Emerald City. Gay Seattle has a thriving cuisine scene and is booming in the art domain, both within the Seattle Art Museum and outside in neighborhoods such as Fremont. Pike Place Market is open all year, where visitors can get slapped by a thrown fish, and Seattle Center, the city's entertainment hub, has restaurants, theaters, museums, and the Seattle Opera. The Sky View Observatory gives visitors an excellent view of Seattle's skyline, including the iconic Space Needle.
