1. Pike Place Market

You can’t come to Seattle without visiting the infamous Pike Place Market. There just isn’t a bad spot here for a picture and there are so many things to snap here.

Perhaps the best shot you can capture in this Market is of a fish being tossed in the air from one stall to the other when a sale is made!

2. Space Needle

Seattle’s crown jewel of landmarks has to be the Space Needle. This structure really stands out (no pun intended!) in Seattle and is the perfect spot to get some fabulous shots of Seattle from way up high.

Head on up 520 feet off the ground to the observation deck for the best skyline panoramic shots in the city.

4. Starbucks Reserve

While Seattle is home to the original Starbucks store (in Pike Place Market if you wish to visit), a much more Instagram-worthy place of your Starbucks pictures is the Starbucks Reserve store. It definitely has that Starbucks vibe except this store is heaps bigger than your regular Starbucks store.

Come take some cool shots of the wide open spaces in this Starbucks along with the super-modern looking design. Look up and check out that ceiling!

5. Gum Wall

The Gum Wall in Seattle is by far their most quirkiest yet intriguing spot. It is exactly what it sounds like – thousands of pieces of gum stuck to a wall. It makes for an explosion of gum colour and some of the coolest (or grossest?) pics in the city.

To get here, look for the Pike Place Market entrance sign and take the first stairs down on the left and head into Post Alley. Take a pic for your ‘gram of you adding your gum to this Gum Wall!

6. Seattle Central Library

The Seattle Central Library is in the heart of downtown Seattle and is an amazing 11 stories tall. The top floor however, is where you want to be for that epic shot for your ‘Gram.

At the top floor, you’ll see their amazing glass roof that everyone will be taking pictures of. You’ll definitely be in awe once you see it!

7. Chihuly Garden and Glass

The Chihuly Garden and Glass is a museum consisting of creative glass-blown art. The art of glass-blowing is on fully display here and this museum is one of Seattle’s most Instagrammable places for the sheer beauty of the glasses and their colourful displays.

Don’t forget to swing by the glass garden outside this museum where you’ll find more Insta-worthy spots.
