Every year millions of tourists flock to Seattle. In fact, an estimated 40.9 million people visited the city in 2018. That’s a lot of smoked salmon and coffee! While there are endless reasons to visit the Emerald City (I lived there for 15 years, so I know how great it is), one popular pull is the region’s wealth of music history.
You can stay at The Beatles suite in the Edgewater Hotel, where the band famously fished out of their room window, and pose for pictures with the Jimi Hendrix statue on Capitol Hill at E Pine St. and Broadway E. And every music fan needs to go to the Museum of Pop Culture (formerly the Experience Music Project), which is packed with all kinds of memorabilia.
