Walking the city’s urban streets, you will discover there is something for everyone. You’ll see people from all walks of life enjoying Seattle’s hidden gems; it doesn’t matter if you’re a middle aged parent with a dog or a young hipster on your skateboard. Seattle off the beaten path is very much appreciated by all and there are many non touristy things to do in Seattle to experience it at its best, that is to say, like a local. I love that there is something for everybody; bars, loud music and dancing, and lots of tiny hole in the wall places for people who like to go out in small groups.

As of now, in its state of transition, some of best kept secrets of Seattle are still undiscovered while the city is in a growing, cool and inclusive state. Here are my top 10 hidden gems in Seattle to ensure you’ll never get bored, which can be enjoyed by solo travellers, families and groups alike.
