How to Spend a Sleepless Night in Seattle on December 31
Here are our top five picks to kick-start 2022 in style.
Watch Colorful Fireworks Display at Space Needle
Prepare to witness the biggest New Year’s Eve party in town at the Seattle Center. There’s live music and a grand firework display for the attendees. Prepare your schedule ahead of time as there’s a space crunch for parking. So, you might want to use public transportation.

Seattle Center is home to several party venues on New Year’s Eve and one such destination is the Pacific Science Center. While families with kids head there 364 days a year to learn about science facts from around the world, things take a drastic turn on December 31. On New Year’s Eve, you’ll find everything from exotic animals to live music and cocktails at the venue. However, SPECTRA’s highlight is the fireworks display at the Space Needle at midnight. Don’t forget to buy tickets in advance.
