Is it better to stay downtown Seattle or Bellevue? Overall, Seattle is where you’ll head for any big city experiences, from events and concerts to high-end meals; Bellevue is close to the action without being at its center. You’ll find things like free parking there, too (good luck finding that in most of Seattle’s center).

With 3 to 4 days in the city, it’s easy to experience the best of Seattle: you focus first on the city’s core, and then venture out onto the water or to one of the city’s parks.
