Board your motorcoach for an excursion highlighting the most popular sights in the "Emerald City." Your knowledgeable guide will share stories and information about the sights you see and multiple photo opportunities ensure that you capture all the memories of the day.
Travel through the bustling downtown area and view Seattle's professional sports stadiums, home to the Seattle Mariners, Sounders and Seahawks. Continue on to the International District, Seattle's Chinatown and the cultural hub for the city's Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. A protected historic district, many of the buildings date to the early 1900's.
Visit the Pioneer Square district, considered to be the birthplace of modern Seattle. After a fire in 1888 destroyed most of the downtown area, all builders were required to use brick. The result is an exceptional example of Classical Revival architecture and a National Historic distinction.
You won't believe your eyes when you soar to the top of the Space Needle. Built in 1962 for the World's Fair, it has become the symbol of Seattle and one of the most recognized urban structures in the world. The observation deck is 520 feet in the air and a 43-second high-speed elevator ride brings you to the top. The panoramic views are spectacular and you can see snow-capped Mt. Rainier, the Cascade Mountains and the majestic Olympic Mountain range. Complimentary Swarovski telescopes get you even closer to the action.
Get ready to dodge some flying fish at your next stop, Pike Place Market. The oldest open-air farmer's market on the West Coast, this 9-acre public market boasts hundreds of artisans, local farmers, fishmongers and curio shops. One of the market's main attractions is to watch the employees throw salmon and other fish to each other instead of passing them by hand. Just order a fish at one of the ice-covered tables and watch your "catch of the day" come sailing through the air to be prepped for sale. You'll also want to check out the very first Starbucks, have a cappuccino, and toast to the place where coffeehouse history began.
You'll enjoy free time to explore the market before reboarding your motorcoach for a ride back to your ship.
