The downtown Seattle you love is back.

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. It’s part of our fabric as a local. And while that relationship may have been tested over the past 15 months, now is the perfect time to rediscover everything you love about downtown. And whether that means a dim sum feast in the Chinatown-International District, getting lost in Pioneer Square’s groundbreaking art scene, or having a family fun day on the waterfront, right now, there’s plenty for you to fall in love with. All over again, or for the very first time. Come explore all that’s happening this summer in SeaTown. Want to learn more about plans for downtown’s recovery?
