    Public transportation. Get out of your car. Take the Metro, light rail, mono rail or a ferry.  Snag a transfer, good for a couple hours of bus hopping. Enjoy the sites. The views on the 520 bridge include Mt Rainer, back side of Seattle skyline, Lake Washington wild life and boating. Ferry to Bainbridge island, Bremerton, do the Titantic stand on the bow overlooking Seattle skyline and Ferris wheel

    walking  the gardens and walkway is most inspiring and appealing.

    eating at the Space Needle includes a free ride to restaurant and to the top of the 360 view of greater Seattle. Eat lunch cheaper and includes the free $20 elevator ride in your fare.  Next travel north on Mercer and west to the Corp of Enginers Hiram Licks and watch boats go from the Puget Sound to Lake Washington.  Play in the nice park next to locks or listen to a talk on the history of the locks and impact on Seattle.

    Where allowed pack cut veggies to snack on. Avoid so called energy bars and carbonated drinks. Unsalted nuts are also good.

    One of my favorite cities, Seattle has much to offer.  You have to go to the original Starbucks, but even better is Puget Sound.  So beautiful, the air so clean.  Definitely a must see when you are in or around Seattle.  :-)

    Everyone has to visit the Pike Market - so much to see there!  Love watching the fish mongers doing their thing!

    After touring the Space Needle for a birds-eye view of the city, stop for a quick lunch in the bustling Seattle Center food court. After lunch stroll to the Chihuly Art Glass museum...absolutely awesome works of art in the museum and garden. On your way to dinner at Duke's Chowder House, check out the strolling street musicians and magicians for a wonderful visit.Dukes Chowder House seafood dishes were a treat for these girlfriends from Nebraska, Texas, and New HampshireDukes Chowder House seafood dishes were a treat for these girlfriends from Nebraska, Texas, and New Hampshire

    After Seattle's Great Fire of 1889, a new city was built atop the old.  Touring what remains of the original, while not for claustrophobes, is a fascinating look at the original city.  See:

    If you go to Seattle don't just drink the coffee. Take the tour of Seattle Underground.

    Amazing display of Chihuly glass art will leave a lasting impression.   Admission fee is well worth the $27 regular admission fee, but you can save $10 per person as a local King County resident.    Tickets can be purchased in advance via the friendly website (http://www.chihulygardenandglass.com).  Venue offers spectacular photo opportunities, especially when capturing the adjacent Space Needle either directly or in the reflection of a garden gazing ball.

    While in Atlanta, don't miss the CNN Center.  You will be able to make your very own news video!

    While in Boston, be sure to take a cruise to whalewatch.  Humpback whales galore!

    While in Chicago, take in a dinner and theater and listen to real jazz on Halstead.

    While in Denver, visit the Butterfly Museum.  Amazing!

    While in Las Vegas, get away to Sam's Town.  It's a break from all the LV craziness!

    While in New York, you must see the area where 9/11 happened.  It will stay with you.

    While in Portland, who knew they had a Japanese Garden?  Beautiful!

    While in San Francisco, you must travel down Lombard Street, the crookedest street in the U.S.

    While in Seattle, you must make a side trip to Victoria's Butchart Gardens.  You won't believe how beautiful!  You can even take home some on their homegrown delights!

    While in Washington, D.C., be sure to tour the FBI building, the theater where Lincoln was shot and the house in which he died which is located right across the street.

    Just a 2 1/2 hour drive from Seattle takes you to majestic Mount Baker, the northern-most snow-covered mountain visible from Seattle.

    Take the Mount Baker Highway from Bellingham where you will drive uninterrupted by traffic lights once you leave the city. During the summer months through the month of September, you can drive all the way to Artist Point, with views of both Mount Baker and craggy Mount Shucksan. From this location, there are many trails with some paved.

    On the way back, stop in at the tiny town of Glacier. There are three great restaurants to choose from: Chair Nine for pizza and cocktails, Grahams for a bit of local history (check out the pictures of Clark Gable from the movie, Call of the Wild, filmed here), or Milanos for authentic Italian. If you're looking for delicious coffee and baked treats, head to Wake-N-Bakery.

    For more information, visit the Glacier Ranger Station.

    Fish Market:  Staff in action are a workplace training "manual."  They epitomize team work.  It's a fun place to visit, to eat there, too is fabulous.  I loved the Russian cultural stores there.

    Cherry blossoms in Washington are marvellous, too.  They're actually a gift from the Japanese government as Japan is known for the cherry blossom festivals, etc.  

    Seattle is very beautiful, multicultural and food is fanastic - and real!

    This is a fun town to go to and only takes a couple of hours from the Seattle area to get to and you can do it all in a day!  A great place to stop and get some speciality meats is Carek's Meat Market on South A Street.  Just down the road back towards I-90 in Suncadia are trails to walk or ride bikes, and also in the area are places to fish and hike as well.  Cle Elum has nice restaurants one can visit and convenient places to shop.  Should you decide to stay the night, you can get a room in a nearby hotel.

    Great place to stay before or after Alaskan cruise.  However, stay on the well-beaten path with lots of people & security.  We used public transportation (bus), got off at wrong stop & found ourselves in an unsavory neighborhood.  Caught the first bus that appeared to get out of there.  As in any area you travel just use common sense, watch your surroundings, but have fun & enjoy the adventure.

    I love Seattle and the surrounding area.  There's something for everyone!  Stay (or park) near Seattle Center, home of the Space Needle, EMP for the rock and roll history buff, Chihuly Garden and Glass for the art lover, Children's Museum and Pacific Science Center.  Hop on the Monorail and head to the Pier area.  Visit the Seattle Aquarium or just wander the shops and restaurants.  Don't forget to check out the world famous Pike's Place Market and the original Starbucks.  At Pioneer Square, you can take a tour of historic Underground Seattle.  Still have more time?  How about watching boats go through Ballard Locks?  The Olympic Sculpture Park is free.  Or, take a drive south on I-5 and spend a day at The Museum of Flight.  It's well worth your time (Tuesdays are 2 for 1).  End your trip with an evening of dinner and a show at Teatro ZinZanni.  It's part circus, part theater and always entertaining.  I know there's more to do in this fabulous town and I hope to discover it and try more of the great food on another trip.  Maybe, I should start planning now!

    Seattle is an amazing center for the arts including a long history of influential music, so in addition to the wonderful water and mountain attractions, my favorite interactive museum is the EMP (Experience Music Project) located next to the Space Needle and other city center attractions.  A must see and do place!
