Pre-Cruise Seattle Sightseeing Tour
Starting at 9am with your pickup at your SeaTac airport hotel, you will encounter six different iconic areas of Seattle: Downtown Seattle, Pioneer Square and Stadium District, International District and Waterfront, Seattle Center and Queen Anne Hill, and the Ballard Locks and Fremond Districts.
The tour will begin in Seattle's bustling downtown core highlighting the Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Shopping District, & World's First Starbucks.
Pioneer Square and Stadium District
Seattle's original downtown is now a 35 square block historic district filled with turn of the century Romanesque architecture, art galleries and trendy restaurants all of which border the sports stadiums for the Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners.
International District and Waterfront
Home to Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korea, Cambodian, and Hmong communities. This neighborhood continues to play a role in Seattle's multicultural identity. Seattle's waterfront includes the aquarium, ferris wheel, classic seafood restaurants, funky souvenir shops, historic piers and ferry and water taxi terminals.
Seattle Center and Queen Anne Hill
The Seattle Center is a 72 acre urban park and is the site of the 1962 World's Fair. The home of the Space Needle, Paul Allen's Experience Music Project, Dale Chihuly's Garden and Glass exhibition and Pacific Science Center. Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill provides a dramatic panoramic photo opportunity of Seattle's skyline.
Fremont neighborhood, famous for its outdoor art and nude bicyclists in the Summer Solstice Parade is also a microcosm of the challenges Seattle faces as it grapples with growth. This once quirky bohemian artist colony is now transforming into a high-tech powerhouse with offices for Google, Tableau, and Adobe while remaining true to its artsy roots.
The views just keep coming! Along with our stop in Fremont, you'll visit the rocky peaks and grassy knolls of Magnolia Bluff. This northwest Seattle neighborhood sits atop a peninsula looking out over Elliott Bay. Watch ferries and boats float across the water, with West Seattle, Bainbridge Island, and even majestic Mt. Rainier in the distance on a clear day.
