Seattle Boat Show

Postby Irish Mist on Fri Jan 12, 2018 10:02 am

Hello all. I want to attend the Seattle Boat Show. To those who have been at the show before, are there any days better then others to attend ? Any recommendation on places to stay would be helpful as well.
Thank you
Irish Mist

I see they are using Bell Harbor this year as well. I like seeing more of the boats on the water even if its further to move between locations.

I try and avoid the weekends and go earlier in the show. if you get the multi day pass its pretty hand to pop in on afternoon/evening in the week. its never as busy as the weekend

Avoid weekends if at all possible! Jan. 29 is Women's Day and women get in free if that's a draw for you. There are many great hotels in Seattle so it depends on how much you want to spend. The Edgewater is a unique place, built out into the water and has incredible views. It is pricey though!

The Edgewater would be my first choice. It's an easy walk to the new Bell Harbor show venue, and from there, free shuttle buses will take you to the other venues. It's also the closest lodging to many other fun things to do on the Seattle waterfront, Pike Place Market, and many other good places to eat.
