Sunday in July

We have a choice of getting into Seattle around 9pm on Saturday 7/5 or 1pm on Sunday 7/6. The hotel/flight difference for the extra night is nominal because the Sunday flight is more $$. Total stay before heading to Victoria is 3 or 4 nights.

We're sure there are advantages of having the full day on Sunday to explore Seattle but would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks

Because the cruise ships often come in and depart on weekends things like the Pike Place Mkt are always jammed on a sunday. Its prime tour season so lots of things are busy but not 'undoable'. Avoiding the mkt on the weekends is perhaps one of the only downfall, otherwise everything is open so if you start early you'll be able to do everything you want.

I would definitely fly in Saturday night so you have a full day on Sunday. A 1pm arrival would mean losing most of the day by the time you get into town, checked in and settled. If you're still on east coast time, up early on Sunday, you could grab an early bite at the Market before it gets too crowded, or go somewhere for Sunday brunch.

If you were planning to get out to Ballard to see the locks during your stay, on Sundays there is a large farmer's market on historic Ballard Avenue. There are producers, prepared foods, music etc. It has large crowds in the peak growing season. You could go out early have breakfast or coffee, visit the locks and then swing through the market, maybe get a bite to eat or hit one of Ballard's nine breweries. I could make some specific suggestions.
