Five Awesome Seattle City Tours

Jun 6, 2008
If you're going to Seattle for the first time, or if you don't know the city that well, I'd recommend taking a tour. I've been to Seattle many, many times and I still enjoy the tours. For you sports fans, I'll be talking about one awesome tour in a moment. Whether you're alone, with a loved one or the family, Seattle offers great tours to suit your situation.

Family Fun Tour

While this first tour is fun for anyone, it's especially fun for families. You can tour Seattle by land and sea in a cool amphibious Word War II vehicle with Ride the Ducks of Seattle.

You'll start out on land, hitting downtown Seattle, and wrap things up by venturing into Lake Union to look at famous houseboats and more.

Aviator's Rejoice

Sure, you can tour Seattle by land and sea, but why not air? Olde Thyme Aviation offers a fantastic aerial tour. For starters, you'll suit up in a leather jacket and goggles. The plane? How about a classic biplane?

The biplane is fully restored and ready to take you on the tour of your life. Enjoy the crisp, clean Seattle air as you look down on Seattle. The takeoff point is the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field.

Chinatown Delight

Even if you aren't Asian, Chinatown is a fantastic, interesting place. Chinatown Discovery Tours allows you to customize a personal tour through this fascinating area.

As they say, you can "nibble your way through Chinatown." You'll be immersed in music, herbal medicine, acupuncture and shopping. This is one unique tour.

Sports Fan's Tours

Okay sports fans here are the tours for you. While I can't imagine anyone not being a Seattle Seahawks or Seattle Mariners fan, it's okay if you're not. Qwest Field, where the Hawks play, and Safeco Field, where the M's play, offer special tours that you'll love.

When a game is going on, you just head to your seat and that's it. Now, you can take a complete Qwest Field tour that will guide you through the luxury suites, visitor's clubhouse and even the field.

But, don't stop there. Safeco Field is right next to Qwest Field. With this tour, you'll visit the press box, luxury suites, visitor's clubhouse and the field. You'll also see the retractable roof--this thing is awesome.

Enjoy the Architecture

Finally, you can wrap up your Seattle stay by taking a tour from Seattle Architecture Tours.

As you might have guessed, this tour is all about the architecture of Seattle. Personally guided tours explore various buildings in Seattle, including the downtown buildings, skyscrapers, historic theaters, and more.

The tours change with the time of year and they are inexpensive. For instance, the Modern Skyscraper tour, which is about 2 hours in length, is only $15 - $17. There's a $2 discount for early registration.

If you're interested, I'd recommend checking out the Seattle Architecture Foundation's Web site for complete details, so you can line up a tour or two with your visit.
