Downtown Seattle

Downtown Seattle combines a big city vibe with the spirit of a small town. Nestled amongst the city’s skyscrapers are the headquarters of Alaska Airlines, Amazon, Microsoft and Starbucks. Pike Place Market is the heart of Seattle’s shopping with big-name retailers, entertainment and restaurants. The Central Waterfront features the giant Ferris Wheel, the Seattle Aquarium and the historic Paramount Theatre. Belltown is known as one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Downtown Seattle with upscale bars, restaurants and nightlife. The I-5, I-90, and I-405 freeways serve the majority of the Seattle area with billboards targeting commuters and tourists going to and from major parts of the area such as Tacoma, Bellevue and national parks within driving distance of the metro area. 

Downtown Seattle is on a growth tear. Over the last 2 years there were more cranes in Downtown Seattle for buildings than Manhattan. The entire landscape has changed as the city continues to grow. Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks are based in Seattle, and Apple most recently has taken 100,000 sqft in market as well.

Thirty minutes south of Downtown is the cultural district of Tacoma, which is home to some of Seattle’s notable museums, such as the Museum of Glass, the Tacoma Art Museum and the Washington State History Museum. Just outside of Tacoma is King County Airport, also known as Boeing Field where the world’s commercial and defense airplanes are manufactured. Residential areas in Tacoma continue to grow, providing advertisers a prime opportunity to target commuter and tourist traffic on the I-5 freeway with billboards heading into and out of the area. In Downtown Tacoma, you’ll also find a lively theater district.  

Tacoma is a booming market as people relocate from Seattle for affordability and space. Many commuters travel I-5 to and from the city on a daily basis which makes for an overlap of audiences who live/work in Tacoma and Seattle. Just south is Joint Base Lewis-McChord Military Base with about 40,000 servicemembers and 15,000 civilian employees.
