Where do we go?

City Map Hatchcover
There are 19 Map Hatchcovers in downtown Seattle. They are part of the City's % for Art Program. Each map has a "you are here" dot.

Here are a few of the highlights on the standard trek: Water Wall (start), Pilchuck Glass, Garden Walk, Union Square waterfall, historical photo gallery promenade, Seattle Central Library artworks, Smith Tower history, Northern Lights Dome Room, Transit Tunnel station artworks, Waterfall Garden Park (lunch stop), Klondike Gold Rush National Park, King Street Station, China Gate, ride on Link Light Rail, Beneroya Hall chandeliers and Hammering Man (end). The tour will include a "Mystery Stop" at one of Seattle's finest little known hidden gems. No hints, you need to take the tour to find out what it is.

Where don't we go? This tour does not go to some of Seattle's best known places where the crowds go such as Seattle Center/Space Needle, Pike Place Market and the Waterfront. Those are excellent places to visit but we think without a guide is best.
Good Ideas!

Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a camera.

What's for Lunch? Weather permitting, we grab a yummy sack lunch along the way and eat outdoors picnic style by the waterfall in Waterfall Garden Park. In case of liquid sunshine, we dine inside one of Pioneer Square's historic buildings.

Historic Pike Place Market @ 1st Ave. & Pike St. is just two blocks from SAM. Here you can explore on your own. You may sample as-you-go from the many farmer stalls filled with fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables nestled among the vendors of fragrant and colorful fresh cut flowers. Just try to sneak by the aroma of the bakeries. Visit the original Starbucks, sample the tea-of-the-day at the Perennial Tearoom or watch the fishmongers at Pike Fish do their flying fish magic! The Market is open until 6:00 PM daily.


The walk from the Market to the tour starting point, Westlake Plaza, is just 4 blocks. From there you can board the Monorail to Seattle Center and visit the Space Needle, MoPOP - Museum of Pop Culture (formerly EMP) and Pacific Science Center among many other attractions.

Also two blocks away from SAM is the waterfront. The many waterfront attractions you can easily walk to there include the Great Wheel, Miners Landing, the Seattle Aquarium, Argosy Cruises, Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, Washington State Ferries (to Bainbridge Island and Bremerton) and the Bell Street Pier.
