Light up your holidays in downtown.

We’ve all said these words: “I love Seattle.” SeaTown. And it goes beyond the surface. We mean it. Because we have a profound connection to our city — especially when it comes to downtown. Surrounded by natural beauty, downtown is rich in commerce, culture and community. And the holidays are the perfect time to enjoy everything you love about the center city. Whether that means catching a classic holiday show and a bite to eat, taking in the holiday lights and seasonal events across downtown neighborhoods or securing that perfect last-minute gift, downtown is the quintessential backdrop for making holiday memories. Come explore all that’s happening this holiday season in SeaTown.
