    Look South to see Mount Rainier the most prominent mount (from base to top) in the Continental US. It has a prominence of 13,211 ft (greater than K2--the world's 2nd tallest mountain--at 13,179 ft)

    Anthony's Seafood is best food here. Their side kitchen is quick and quality. There is a small table and outlet right next to the plasticware station.. located by Life is Good and Exofficio

    Grab coffee at Café Vita (C3) and some world-famous mac & cheese at the adjacent Beecher's. Pick up some 90s swag at Sub Pop. Then sit in the atrium and watch a live local band. Perfection.

    If you plan to take the train to the city, note that you can only buy a day pass for the current day - do not try to buy two at once for today and tomorrow, you may get stopped and warned, nicely tho

    I love this airport. It is magically quite somehow. Even though it's busy, it's not noisy at all. Very nice for getting work done. And free WiFi. And of course, good coffee. :)

    Sea-Tac had some of the best Seventies public art in its open spaces. The podium-controlled light wall was a favorite. Public wifi and access to Sound Transit light rail into Seattle are available. Read more

    TSA TIP #3 Remove your laptop(s) and shoes/belts while waiting in line for the x-ray machines and carry them in your hands to be ready for the bins, remember laptops are placed in a bin by itself.

    Pros: free wifi, great food options, very clean and nice decor. Cons: line was really long at north terminal, one of the longest I've seen at an airport on Saturday afternoon. Go early if you can.

    The rental car facility has moved off site which makes getting to and from the airport take a lot longer. Take Uber to get around instead and take advantage of the region's diamond lanes as well.

    Spent the night there last night. It gets cold so ask for a blanket. Best place to sleep is behind the ticket wall to keep light and sound out. Stay away from windows. Night crew is very helpful!

    Traveling with kids? Use the family security check! Near the D gates as of Jan 2013. As a mom traveling alone with a baby, the TSA agents went out of their way to help me through.

    Head to the Central Terminal's streetscape scene w/ shops & food court. Check out the glass curtain w/ airfield views. Sit in the rocking chairs, connect to free WiFi, & watch planes land & take-off.

    I've travelled out of seatac twice with us airways and alaska. I had great experiences with both airlines. If travelling to seatac from Vancouver i suggest Quick Shuttle $56 is worth

    Seattleites will loath me, but Ivar's clam chowder at the airport is my soul food every time I fly out. As for the airport itself, it's big, confusing, and it's unchanged since the 90s, but I like it.

    One of the nicest restrooms in SeaTac is one of the least obvious - past the Baggage Claim carousels, down a ramp. Spacious with cool wall tile art

    Food courts at the S gates are limited. Grab a Lemon Loaf & Decaf at Seattle's Finest Coffee kiosk, or do a takeaway from the restaurant in front of it as there's a wait time of 20 mins for seating.

    This is a great airport to start your trip... Hit up the central concourse for all your your food or coffee needs. Easily walkable and with lots of signage.

    Pop over to Anthony's seafood - chowder in a sourdough bowl and the prawn Bloody Mary can ease any cross country jaunt.

    When the check-in line is as long as the airport itself, don't hesitate to use the curbside baggage check service offered by most airlines. A tip is polite, but it is worth the saved time.

    Alaska Airlines check-in for First Class usually has a line of four to five people with one agent checking in bags and tickets so might be worth it to use the self serve positions for faster check-in!

    Vino Volokh has a great wine sampler option. The chilli was delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing with jazz music. You may spend a lot but it's worth it.

    If you have kids: In the B concourse there are fish on the floor. See if your kids can find the ones holding luggage or shaped like a plane. And one of the water fountains has a sound feature.

    Don't pay for the "express" charge kiosks! Bring a 1A(Belkin, Apple, etc.) USB charger, and look for other kiosks. They have to plug in somewhere, often with a free plug for YOU!

    Seattle-Tacoma International is the home airport of Alaska Airlines and a big Delta hub. With growing international services to Asia and Europe, the airport is (still) an ideal connecting airport.

    I really like this airport. I've been through several times and I've never been lost. It's very clean and comfortable and don't forget Free WiFi.

    you have a layover, take the DoubleTree complimentary shuttle for a quick bite to eat or to enjoy a cookie! Also, the free Wi-Fi at the airport is a huge perk!

    If the food choices don't rock your boat at the terminal you fly into take the train to the Central Terminal for better food! Anthony's has seafood, beer, drinks and comfortable seating!

    There's nobody at the JetBlue counter from 530p-745p. If you're on a redeye to JFK and come super early, try bag dropoff at 530p, even though check-in is 4 hrs max prior. Or just cruise the free wifi!

    One of the few airports where bathroom doors swing out, not in, and if you travel a lot on your own, you definitely know why that's awesome!

    one of the more painless ways to get away from Portland is to brave the connection through Seattle - well worth the extra range and sometime price savings

    If you're in a hurry get off the shuttle one stop early, like at Southwest for Delta. Inside the terminal distances are shorter, you save almost 10 minutes

    The Italian place just to the left in the food court is amazing! Really good pizza and pasta, and they are open until 11pm.

    There’s street-pricing in the shops and restaurants, which means prices—even on a cup of coffee—can’t exceed what you'd pay at the same shop in town Read more

    Check out the new Dilettante Mocha Cafe at the N Gates. Get a Mocha with your choice of real melted chocolate. Better than Starbucks!

    Using the light rail to get downtown is super easy. It's a bit of a walk from the terminal, but the signage is good and it's all through the parking ramp, so it's covered.

    TSA TIP #4 When loading your belongings onto the x-ray belts load them in an order to help expedite at the other end. THINK, (a) suit case first, (b) laptop bags/purse, & (c) your shoe & belts tray.

    The food court is amazing in the main terminal along with great shopping to pass the time. Don't get distracted and miss your flight though! Happy Travels!

    Definitely one of my fave airports in the US - not too big, not too small. Lots of nice eateries and plenty of shops to browse through.
