Is Seattle Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Located in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, Seattle is known for its stunning natural scenery, rich cultural history and innovative spirit. Facing onto the Puget Sound and backed by the towering Cascade mountain range, the city offers a unique blend of man-made and natural delights, from the striking skyline dominated by the Space Needle, to the salmon-laden waters of Pike Place Market. Known as the birthplace of grunge music, home to iconic coffee chain Starbucks and the aviation giant Boeing, Seattle is an essential destination for not only music, coffee enthusiasts, and aviation geeks but for any lover of scenic beauty, good food, vibrant arts scene, and outdoor adventures.

Seattle is quite safe at night, but I would recommend that you keep your wits about you if walking alone in Downtown or International District. People may try to talk to you, but are generally harmless. The light rail is good for getting from the airport to Downtown and Capitol Hill, and buses will take you to other parts of town (albeit perhaps with a transfer). In the winter, Seattle can be quite dreary but a trip to the mountains to see snow and taking the ferry to the surrounding islands makes for a nice getaway. In the summer, go to a local beach (Golden Gardens or Alki) to have a picnic and watch the sunset over a bonfire.

I spent many days wandering around Seattle and I can say that Seattle is generally a safe place for adventures. Golden Gardens Park, Alki Beach, Mercer Slough, Arboretum, and Seattle Center are all beautiful places. For day trips, I recommend Rainier or Olympic National Park or the San Juan Islands. Many people avoid the area between Westlake Centre and Pike’s Market after dark. It's safe enough there, but sometimes it can seem dangerous. The public library in downtown Seattle is my place for remote work.

About me

Hi! I’ve got wanderlust like many of you and have used Couchsurfing extensively in the past with some strange experiences with men hoping for more than a guest, so I figured I would see what else is out there to make some more genuine and safe connections as I travel. I have been to 18 countries, finding joy in simply wandering and taking photos of nature, the the crowds and street art… and feeling like a local — I don’t spend much time in bars, clubs or sitting on beaches, but I do hit many of the tourist spots. I consider myself open and willing to meet new people for all the stories and knowledge we can share! In the US, I am an avid hiker and reader and leader of potlucks and excursions for fun and work in public health for money — although I just applied for a psychology program because people intrigue me! I’m happy to chat or meet or stay at your place or you at mine.
