Seattle, Washington, is well-known for its hip vibes, coffee culture (the birthplace of Starbucks, after all), its Pacific-inspired foodie scene, and much more. Tourists from all over the world come to Seattle to visit their popular attractions like The Pink Door at Pike Place Market or tour the Museum of Popular Culture. Undoubtedly, Seattle has no shortage of fun activities, and attractions often recommended to visitors.

However, many tourists are unaware of the quirkier things that this west coast city offers. Sure, Seattle's infamous Gum Wall is a well-known attraction that awes some visitors (while grossing out other tourists). But this west coast city has an array of unconventional oddities and unique attractions that can only be found in Seattle.

After touring the world-famous Space Needle and browsing the delights at Pike Place Market, curious travelers should stop by these quirky attractions which are exclusive to Seattle! From terrible art to giant sequoia trees, tourists will also have an opportunity to tour this world-class city while finding these unique oddities.

8 Pac-Man Park

  • Location:  110 Summit Ave E

Also known as Arcade Park, tourists who grew up playing the Pac-Man will love seeing the Pac-Man Park on Olive Way. Despite being small, this triangular piece of asphalt was transformed to resemble the classic arcade game, including Pac-Man and the four colored ghosts. Chairs and tables are available at this tiny park and it's a good place to sit while ordering take-out from a local restaurant nearby.

7 Center of the Universe Sign

  • Location:  3427 Fremont Pl N, Seattle, Washington, United States

The neighborhood of Freemont claims that once visitors enter, they never want to leave. Hence, this sign was hilarious proof that people love Fremont so much that they consider it the Centre of the Universe (at the intersection of North Fremont Avenue and 35th Street). Tourists can awe at this parody street sign, noticing the directions to places like Rapunzel, Atlantis, and the Bermuda Triangle.

6 Seattle's Official Bad Art Museum of Art

  • Location:  5828 Roosevelt Way NE

There's a museum that exists which exhibits artwork so bad that it must be on display for the world to see. Situated on Roosevelt Way, Seattle's Official Bad Art Museum of Art is home to art that, as they say, is: "too bad to be ignored." Visitors can check out exhibits like Dopplehangers (Portrait paintings that barely resemble the celebrities they're intended to portray) or Aye Aye Aye (drawings of just eyes).

5 Denny Substation

  • Location:  1250 Denny Way

Seattle's Denny Substation is more fascinating than unusual. Still, this massive building looks so sleek, it's worth checking out. Erected in 2018, the Denny Substation on Denny Way is meant to support electricity supply to various Seattle industries. The massive structure was built to support the city for 50 to 100 years! Visitors can take a self-tour of the Denny Substation, stopping by the Transforest sculpture, dog park, and the interactive space nearby to see local artwork. Details can be found on the Substation, like writings on the wall and on the pavement (reference points between other places in the world).

4 Seattle's Giant Sequoia Tree

  • Location:  4th Avenue and Stewart Street

It's not unusual to see trees in the city; however, the Giant Sequoia Tree in Seattle's 4th Avenue and Stewart Street stands out against the backdrop of concrete buildings. This 80-foot giant of a tree sits peacefully within the city's retail district. Visitors can admire this massive tree while crossing the street between Olive Way and Stewart Street and snap some photos (there's no sitting area around the tree, unfortunately). During the holiday season, the city decorates the tree with festive lights!

3 Hats N Boots

  • Location: Oxbow Park, 6427 Carleton Ave S

Located in Oxbow Park, the Hats & Book Park is home to the US's most giant boot and hat. Created by artist Lewis Nasmyth, these gigantic sculptures were once used to attract patrons to a cowboy-themed gas station in Seattle's historic town of Georgetown. Today, these iconic sculptures sit quietly in the neighborhood's Oxbow Park and are integral to Georgetown's heritage.

2 Rubber Chicken Museum

  • Location:  1300 N 45th St

Museums are educational places for patrons to learn and explore new ideas and the history of objects. There is even a museum dedicated to toilets and plungers! So while visitors won't find an exhibit in Seattle about toilets, they can still find one dedicated to rubber chickens. This kooky museum can be located at Archie McPhee's, Seattle's most famous toy store in Wallingford. This museum is home to both the largest and smallest rubber chicken in the world!

1 Scarecrow Video

  • Location:  5030 Roosevelt Way N

Travelers who miss the old days of renting movies should stop by Scarecrow Video. This non-profit project has been in operation for over 30 years. It is the most extensive physical media library in the US, with over 137,000 titles for rent! From international titles to silent films, patrons have a wide array of DVDs available for rent (as well as media players like laserdisc and region-free DVD players).
