Next to FanTan Alley and Mole, this coffee stop could be habit forming. Owner Shane Devereaux has made a name for himself and his shop by taking coffee seriously. On Tuesdays you may stop by and join the “cupping” where you get to taste a number of beans and brews the way coffee buyers do. You get right done into the coffee. It’s worth an hour on a Tuesday afternoon if you like java and want to learn a little about “joe”.

Seattle Cruises – San Juan Islands Whale Watching

“Get out on the water!” Anyone who lives in Seattle or visits often will tell you the same thing: take a cruise! This city is built on the water. There is a busy port and a vibrant waterfront. There are lakes and rivers scattered throughout the countryside–and a big ocean right at your doorstep in downtown Seattle.

Take a cruise on Lake Washington and Lake Union with Argosy Cruises. These two lakes are connected by locks to Puget Sound. Over on the Puget Sound waterfront, take a super-fast catamaran up to Victoria with the Victoria Clipper. You can go for the day–or spend the night with a number of creative getaway options.

Sail from the waterfront to Blake Island. There, you can enjoy an interesting demonstration of Native American culture at Tillicum Village. You’ll feast on delicious Pacific Salmon–and learn how salmon played an integral role in native life.

Several cruises depart Seattle’s waterfront for the San Juan Islands to watch for whales. This is a fun trip–and you’re likely to see other wildlife, including sea otters and porpoise, so be sure and bring your camera!

The Washington State Ferry also sails from the Seattle waterfront. Commuters take the ferry over to Bainbridge Island. You can drive your car on board for the 15-minute journey. It’s a quick way to reach the Olympic Peninsula. Drive up to Port Townsend–or plan a longer trip to Olympic National Park!

You also can cruise in the San Juan Islands by driving north from Seattle to Bellingham. From there, you can sail with Victoria-San Juan Cruises over to Vancouver Island, with a stop in Friday Harbor. Chances are good you’ll see whales along the way!

Seattle Attractions – Top Travel Picks

We love Seattle. You will, too. Here are some tips and picks for the Emerald City.

Stop by the Concierge desk at the new Washington State Convention Center on Pike Street near Seventh Avenue. It’s right downtown. The folks there do a great job of giving recommendations on where to eat, where to shop, what’s going on in town and so forth. Also, you can pick up a free copy of the Seattle Convention and Visitors Bureau guide. It’s comprehensive–and easy-to-read.

Make time to visit Kenmore Air for a Seattle Seaplane flightseeing trip. Take off from the scenic Lake Union seaplane dock. See spectacular views of the Emerald City: Lake Union, University of Washington, Seattle Skyline, Space Needle, Ship Canal, Mt. Rainier, Qwest Field, Safeco Field, and stunning views of the waterfront!

This year is the 101st anniversary of the Pike Place Market. What started in 1907 as a simple Farmer’s Market has blossomed into a city-within-a-city, replete with restaurants, the traditional farmer’s market, gift shops, souvenir stands, apartments, microbreweries and–of course–coffee stands. In fact, the original Starbuck’s cafe is located in the Pike Place Market.

Plan on spending at least one day on the water. Choose a cruise of the harbor–or maybe a day-long adventure up to Victoria, B.C. A Victoria Clipper high-speed ferry will land you in Victoria’s Inner Harbour – in the heart of downtown Victoria. There are a number of sightseeing opportunities andactivities for Victoria B.C. in the Seattle TourSaver.

There is also a dinner cruise to Tillicum Village, which features a wonderful salmon bake and an interesting presentation on Native American culture. MUST SEE!

Shop ’til you drop at the mother of all department stores: Nordstrom. It started out as a shoe store–and they still have a great shoe department. That’s good, since you spend a lot of time on your feet when you’re in Seattle! Choose from several top-notch shopping malls downtown, including Westlake Village and Pacific Place. The good news is there are great restaurants in each venue, so you don’t have to stop shopping for too long!

What’s that needle in the sky? Ohhh, the Space Needle. Catch the monorail from Westlake Village and cruise over traffic to the Seattle Center. Go ahead: pay the extra money and take the elevator ride up to the “O” deck for a 360-degree view. It’s a Seattle Landmark! While you’re there, check out the exhibits at the Seattle Center, including Pacific Science Center and their IMAX theater!

The Seattle Art Museum downtown is a place you have to go check out. There are wild contemporary art exhibits, in addition to permanent exhibits from around the world. If the museum is too stuffy, or if you just like fresh air, choose the Olympic Sculpture Park. It’s the Seattle Art Museum’s free outdoor museum at the north end of the waterfront. World-famous sculptors have decorated this oceanfront setting–with the beautiful Olympic Mountains as a backdrop!

If you are a wine lover, drive over to Woodinville for the day. It’s a 30-minute drive–and many of Washington’s best wineries have tasting rooms set up so you can sample some of the best grapes. In fact, they’ll ship some back home for you! Our favorites include Columbia Winery and Brian Carter Cellars . Oh, don’t forget about the micro-breweries. The Red Hook Ale tour is a must-see!

Take your time exploring Seattle. There is the famous Elliott Bay Bookstore in historic Pioneer Square. There are the incredible Tom Douglas restaurants strategically placed around downtown. There is a vibrant arts scene, with an unending parade of live music-including jazz, classical and all sorts of ethnic strains!

You’ll love Seattle. And it’s our hope that you’ll return again and again!
