Seattle

Seattle is a major U.S. city and a popular port of call.  Situated in Seattle, it has become a high-tech metropolis for mover and shaker companies like Microsoft, Starbucks, Nordstrom, and Amazon.com. 

Seattle is easy to get around on foot.  Major emphasis first needs to be placed on Pike Place Market where boutiques, restaurants, food stands and shops abound in this nine-acre historic district.  Starbucks was launched here and the original store still operates.  A must is to see giant salmons get tossed in the air at Pike Place Fish.  Here you can get a salmon 'souvenir' packed for your travel back home.

The Seattle Waterfront is the location of the Seattle Aquarium, more shops and restaurants.

Visit the famous Space Needle for an awesome view of the city at the Seattle Center.   Here you'll also find an IMAX theater, and the Experience Music Project: 140,000 square feet of interactive exhibits, artifacts and live performances.

To get a feel for Seattle history, stroll through it's historic district now filled with art galleries, antique shops, restaurants, and Seattle's best bookstore - Elliot Bay Bookstore.

Seattle also has a Chinatown.  Check out the popular dim sum walking and tasting tour.

Several cruise operators offer tours and views of the Seattle from the water.
