With Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Superintendent AP Diaz as your guide, visit some of the Emerald City’s most iconic spots that clearly show why #SeattleShines.
Begin at scenic Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill with its unrivaled view of the central city and Elliott Bay (with an occasional peek at Mt. Rainier). From there we travel to Seattle Center, an active civic, arts, and family gathering space at the north end of downtown Seattle. Seattle Center was the original home to the future-themed 1962 World’s Fair. We will ride up the famed Space Needle (talk about great views!) followed by a visit to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum featuring the ethereal glasswork of renowned artist Dale Chihuly. Chihuly has led the avant-garde in the development of glass as fine art, and his work includes more than 200 museum collections worldwide.
We then hop on the Monorail back to the city center and walk to the historic Pike Place Market. Sometimes referred to as the “soul of Seattle,” Pike Place is one of the oldest and largest continuously operating public markets in the United States.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes and have your camera ready!
