Walking Seattle: 35 Tours of the Jet City's Parks, Landmarks, Neighborhoods, and Scenic Views (Walking) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Seattle is one of the top most walkable cities in the country and for good reason. Aside from the beautiful landscape, Seattle is full of cozy bungalows, stately mansions, postmodern palaces, and outdoor art all over. It has wide boulevards, narrow cobblestone lanes, and carless pedestrian pathways. Not to mention, it seldom gets too cold to go walking, and almost never gets too hot.

These 35 specially designed urban treks are not only good exercise but are a great way to soak up the history, culture, parks, and vibe of the city. Each walk’s commentary includes trivia about architecture, local culture, and neighborhood history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, or shop. Each tour includes a clear neighborhood map and vital public transportation (where appropriate) and parking information. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a “Points of Interest” section lists each walk’s highlights.

Insider Clark Humphrey guides the urban adventurer from Pioneer Square, to Queen Anne Hill, and all the way to the U District and the University of Washington Campus. From West Capitol Hill and Broadway, to Foster Island and Arboretum, this book reveals part of the city even seasoned locals overlook.

Synopsis:

The Queen City of the Pacific Northwest was once known principally for the spectacular forests, mountains, and waters surrounding it.

But now, what's in Seattle is as famous as what's outside it. This is a vibrant young city full of attractions. It's a center for several hi-tech industries and a crossroads of global cultures.
