Past and present thrive side by side in Seattle, and you'll see many of the Emerald City's best highlights on this tour.
View Seattle's sports stadiums; then, discover the historic flavor of Pioneer Square -- Seattle's birthplace dating back to 1852. Pass the International District and tour through the downtown core and shopping district. Circle the Seattle Center campus on your way to the Space Needle, where you'll soar to the top by elevator for an unforgettable vista of the skyline and Elliott Bay. Marvel at the striking colors of the adjacent Chihuly Garden & Glass permanent collection. You will have the opportunity to explore this new art experience that showcases the most significant works of internationally-acclaimed artist and glass pioneer Dale Chihuly. Many of his most monumental works are housed in an eye-catching conservatory, but the dazzling display spills outside as well. Here, the natural landscaping and the famous Space Needle serve as an inviting backdrop for a myriad of examples of this Northwest artist's exuberant creations.
Back on the coach, head through the gentrifying Belltown area to Pike Place Market -- the West Coast's largest and oldest open-air farmers' market. Browse in the dozens of curio shops and local artisan stalls. Don't forget to check out Flying Fish -- one of the more famous vendors at the Market.
Your tour ends with a transfer to back to the ship.
