Not far away, Seattle, Wash., takes fourth place and while it doesn’t take a top spot for beer gardens, it does rank just after Portland for most coffee and tea shops per capita. From Pike Place Market to Puget Sound, Chihuly Garden and Glass to the Space Needle, there’s plenty to do and see. © Sara Winter | Dreamstime.com

Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

Seattle has a wealth of history hidden beneath its streets. The Subterranean Seattle Walking Tour is a great opportunity for history buffs and curious travelers to discover the city’s first established neighborhood, Pioneer Square, from a unique perspective.

 

The underground pathways beneath Pioneer Square were developed in the 1890s and existed from when the space above was an Indian dwelling through the Gold Rush and into today’s modern, bustling city. The tour itself is not strenuous, but does travel across uneven terrain and six flights of stairs. It’s important to dress appropriately for the occasion in warm clothing and shoes designed for long walks.

 

The guide will teach you about the neighborhood’s history during the Klondike Gold Rush and over a century’s worth of settlements and growth. While the majority of the tour takes place underground, portions of it do see the light of day. Travelers with an interest in history will appreciate the enthusiastic and informed guides. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind tour that provides incredible knowledge of one of America’s most historic cities.

 

At a price of only $19 per person, it’s quite a deal and will make for a wonderful story to tell your friends. Check out the website for more information on the tour and other offerings by Beneath the Streets Walking Tours.
