I plan to visit Seattle by bus (bolt bus, arrived at 5th Ave South @ S.King St) but I'll have only half day for this trip. I'll arrive about noon and my key attractions are focusing on Pike Place Market (to visit 1st shop of Starbuck) and Space Needle. So, my questons;
1. How can I get a monorail from my bus stop (king street)?
2. Where should be the 1st place to visit?
3. Any other recommended places to fit with my plan?
Thank you very much.
Trying to decide on which city to visit on my next trip, before I hit Vancouver. Any ideas? I love shopping and watching good live music n generally looking around...
I will have a group of 13 people arriving from Vancouver to Seattle via the Amtrak Cascades train in June. Arrival at the train station is scheduled for 10:10PM Saturday night. We have an early flight from Seatac at 7AM the next morning. I really don't want to spend money for hotel rooms for just 3 or 4 hours of sleep. So, I am looking for transportation suggestions from train station to Seatac and any other ideas about what to do until time to check in for flights.
Now, I am planning to travel in Wa state and Id in 2014 (yes I am not late...) We will land in Seattle and I foresee to stay 3 days in this city and I am searching a hotel with the following criteria : - In downtown, not far from Pike Place - Between 100 to 200$ per night - With an internet connection - With a parking included or not within the price. - Breakfast in the hotel is not an issue if there are restaurants open early in the morning at a working distance.
Thanks a lot for your advices.

Thanks!
Hi guys, We plan to take the train from Seattle (S. Jackson Street) to Anaheim, but will need to spend one night in a hotel. Can anyone suggest a nice hotel near the train station? (does not have to be Five Star, but would like a decent, clean and convenient hotel) Thanks everyone, Mickey

I recently returned from a visit to Washington, fantastic time! We observed the tide pools at Rialto Beach at low tide. Many starfish, sea urchins, mussels were seen on the rocks. A friend would like to do a similar trip in April. I know the temps will be much lower, can the sea life still be observed on the rocks? Thanks!
We are hoping to fly into Seattle mid october for 7 days. We would really like to go and see Mount Rainier and North Cascades National Parks. What is the weather like for visiting these parks at this time of year and is it possible to see them both in such a short time? Are there likely to be closed roads/trails? Any help appreciated.
Does anyone have experience with some of the "off-brand" car rental companies? Payless, Fox, E-Z? I'm headed to Seattle in Sept. and would like to know if these companies are as good as the majors in that market. Their rates seem to be much better. Any help appreciated.

What do you recommend as the best route from the Forks area back to the Sea-Tac airport. Mapquest takes me north on 101. It seems about the same distance south to Olympia, etc. Are there concerns using the Olympia route - bridges, city driving, etc? I have never been to Seattle and would appreciate advice from someone who knows this area. Thanks!

I am trying to catch the ferry to San Juan Islands. Unfortunately, the clipper is not running in April. The Kenmore float plane wants112 which is not economical. Is there a direct way to get from Seattle to the port Anacortes? I only want to take one mode of transportation; meaning I do not want to transfer from bus to train or another bus and I do not want to rent a car.
I was going to be traveling to Seattle and had planned to check a bag with a gift in that was a bottle of scotch. I won't be able to make the trip now, but I would like to send a gift to a friend. I wonder if anyone knows any good resource in Seattle that I could call to purchase a bottle of scotch and have them deliver it to a friend. Anybody have any idea? Many thanks.
Has anyone been on the following tours? a. music ........ if so what type of music did they focus on? b. private eye Are these tours worth it? Where is the Northwest Native Cultural Center? I am not having luck on the web. Anyone been to the World Rhythm festival? Most tours I've seen do not seem to include Jimi Hendrix park or have any mention of Quincy Jones. Are there any such tours? Is it worth going to the park on my own? If so how?
Booked a week in Seattle in Hilton across from Space Needle area. 1. When seeing the locks is it best to take the cruise, or the Explore Seattle bus tour or take public transportation there? 2. Are there any light trails in Mt Rainier or Olympus Park? (Steep slopes are difficult) 3. Does the duck tour and the Argosy lake tour take the same route?
We're from Oz, and will be visiting Seattle for first time in early June. We usually try to stay as close as possible to the city centre. Please let us know the best tourist-interest and safest areas/streets to stay in the downtown area - and any areas which we should avoid! Any recommendations for good, medium quality hotels downtown would be helpful. Thanks,
I'm not a local but, living in Vancouver, BC, I've had many an occasion to visit the Emerald City and environs. In the last week of January I'm going to be house-sitting for a friend in Woodinville. I'll be bringing my new camera along and would love to get tips from locals about interesting places to go to photograph. Put another way, if you had a friend come to visit and they insisted that you only take them to places off of the beaten path, where would you go? Robert
