A must do is the Bill Speidel's Underground tour. I learned a lot of history that my family who has resided in Seattle had not known. A ferry ride to Kingston and drive to Port Gamble to explore the town that is straight out of the late 1800's. Visit Snoqualmie Falls and hike down to the bottom at the river. It is worth every step! Don't forget to visit Pike's Market for eclectic merchants and amazing city and water views!

Seattle weather is often changeable, so take a mix of clothes and layer. Seattle has many sights that are hidden like Volunteer Park from which there are spectacular views of the city. Pike Place market is another well-known, but worthwhile gem to visit in downtown - it's the home of the original Starbucks store if you are interested. Taking a ferry across Puget Sound from downtown to Bainbridge Island affords some of the most spectacular views of the skyline - attractive on both rainy and even more so on sunny days, with Mt. Rainier thrown in as a bonus. North of the city in Everett is the Boeing plant which is absolutely worth a visit, and out of the city a trip up to Mt. Rainier or further south to the exploded volcano Mt. St. Helens are both spectacular. East of the city is in Woodinville are some of the state's finest wineries all offering tours and tasting (take a designated driver!). A visit to the Microsoft campus is a must for nerds and aspiring nerds alike... and a renting a canoe from the University waterfront activities centre (WAC) and paddling around the arboretum is a relaxing day out.

Airport was easy to get around in. Lots of food choices and not too expensive. A bit surprising that they do not seem to have Alaska listed as one of the airline choices when pulling up to the airport. Maybe we just missed it. Transportation to/from seems to be easy to access. We took a shuttle to the rental car place, but there seemed to be lots of other options as well.

SeaTac is as good as any airport, and better than some of the larger ones. Alaska is the biggest airline at SEATAC and their checkin process is OK, except for the long line to drop bags. Food available is OK, but not outstanding. TSA is crowded unless you are "pre-check", and then less than 5 minutes. Gates are well marked, and it is easy to get around. Rental car shuttle is frequent. Rental car building is quite efficient.

Seattle airport is kind of shabby and large. We felt we had to go through a maze to get to our baggage and then the shuttle bus. The signage is well marked however, so we did not get lost. There are restrooms in several places on each level which is a plus. The shuttle to the rental car area was quick on the way out and back. This was very nice and we did not have to wait at all. Do get there early for departure's the security at this airport had a lengthy line and it took at least 30 minutes to get through.

Seattle and all thr surrounding towns and neighborhoods were well kept up, diverse, and beautiful. Just have ti be exrta alert downtown as there are a lot of homeless and many are drug addicts.
