CheapTickets is your source for all of your travel needs, from vacation accommodations to cheap flights to Seattle. Seattle visitors will land at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, also known as Sea-Tac Airport. This airport is about 13 miles south of Seattle. Carriers operating out of Sea-Tac Airport include Delta, United, and American Airlines.
Once your plane lands, you can take a public bus or the light rail into downtown Seattle. The light rail is an economical option at $2.75 for a one-way trip from the airport to the Westlake Mall station downtown. Several companies also operate shared-ride shuttle buses and minivans, including Airporter Shuttle and Shuttle Express. Taxi service at the airport is provided by Yellow Cab, and taxis can be found on the third floor of the parking garage. Free shuttle buses take passengers who want to rent a car to the rental car facility located off-site. Companies located at the rental car facility include Alamo, National, Thrifty, and Hertz.
With the Cascades and Lake Washington in the east and Elliot Bay and the Olympic Peninsula in the west, Seattle enjoys a mild climate most of the year. Winter highs average in the 40s and 50s, and snow is rare. Winter days are often overcast, and a light drizzle is present on many days during the winter months. Spring and fall feature warm days and cool nights. Summer highs average in the 70s, and nights remain cool, so dress in layers.
Art lovers will appreciate the many pieces of public art scattered throughout the Seattle area and may want to visit the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum, and Seattle Sculpture Park. Families enjoy visiting the Seattle Center, home to the Space Needle, the Science Fiction Museum, the Experience Music Project, and the Pacific Science Center. Taking harbor cruises in Elliot Bay, exploring the historical buildings of Pioneer Square, and shopping at Pike Place Market are other Seattle experiences not to miss.
