Drive the Emerald City of Seattle

Seattle Car Hire

Seattle is the largest city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest region. Rich in beauty and cultural history, Seattle is named after Noah Sealth, chief of the local Suquamish Native American tribe.

DriveAway offer a large range of vehicles and motorhomes with many different suppliers from either the Seattle International Airport or downtown locations in Seattle. The airport is approximately 20 minutes to downtown, and driving here is not at all stressful compared to larger cities across the United States.

Throw a Fish at Pike Place Market

Seattle is the birthplace of worldwide known companies such as Amazon, Starbucks, Microsoft and Boeing. It is also situated on Puget Sound, in the midst of some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the USA, and what better way to explore than by car hire?

The Space Needle was built for the 1962 World's Fair and at 605 feet tall, it gives spectacular 360º views of downtown Seattle and the surrounding areas. The snow-capped mountains in the distance look like a real-life postcard, and from the downtown waterfront, you are able to take a ride on the Seattle Great Wheel or stop at the Aquarium.

Pike Place Market is a beloved downtown public market that has been in business for more than 100 years. The year-round farmers market offers fresh produce, cheese, flowers, handicrafts, and of course, the flying fish. Vendors at the Pike Place Fish Market toss salmon to each other, always drawing a crowd.

For aviation enthusiasts, DriveAway highly recommend taking a tour through the Boeing Factory north of the city. The tour takes you through the world's largest building by volume to see the production lines of the 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliners.

A cute little town to stop along your way is Port Angeles. Port Angeles offer different activities such as whale watching, kayaking, hiking tours through Olympic National Park and also the chance to visit a beautiful lavender farm.
