Built in 1944 by the Port of Seattle, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, known to locals as Sea-Tac, acts as a gateway to the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Each year more than 31 million passengers stop at Sea-Tac on their way to great destinations, including Amsterdam, Beijing, Tokyo, Hawaii, Alaska and, of course, the Queen City itself.

Seattle’s Best // The Seattle Taproom has plenty of pub fare to tide you over until your flight, but the standout selections come in the way of regional ales and microbrews that highlight the best of the Seattle area. There is also an outpost of the popular store Made in Washington, featuring gifts and goods made by local artisans.

A Work of Art // Throughout the concourses you will find art by both internationally famous artists—including Frank Stella and Robert Rauschenberg—and local artists who highlight the region’s diversity. Find art and installations that draw from European, Asian, Native American and folk-art influences.

Pacific Marketplace // The 130,000-square-foot glass-paneled space is a hub of dining and shopping options, with comfortable seating and a wall of glass that allows travelers to view departing flights against the backdrop of the Olympic Mountains.
