RV Rentals in Seattle
Pike Place Market and University District
Because of Seattle's geography, it can be perpetually cloudy when you come between October until May. But this is good excuse to make your first stop on your Seattle motorhome rental at the original Starbucks coffee shop in Pike Place Market, Seattle's farmer's market since 1907.
A surface lot for RV parking is situated across the Seattle Aquarium and within walking distance of the market, putting you within striking distance of other attractions downtown. On a clear day, drive your Seattle camper rental to the Space Needle Observation Deck a mile north for 360-degree views of the city and the spectacular Olympic Mountains in the horizon. Or, you can head half a mile south of the market to Smith Tower Observation Deck, once the tallest building in the west, for fantastic views of the waterfront.
From here, the nearest RV park offering full hook-ups is less than 7 miles north in the University District, which also puts you within quick driving distance on your Seattle campervan rental to the many museums and art galleries that dot the campus and surrounds.
Even better, there are plenty of watering holes and live music venues in the vicinity, notable of which is The Crocodile Cafe in Belltown north of Pike Place, where grunge rock had its beginnings; and the historic Showbox right in the heart of downtown, notable for its indie rock scene.
