One of the things so great about living in Vancouver is that we are very close to America as it is just a short drive away! This is why you don’t miss out on the chance to join us on a day trip to Seattle on Sunday, December 16th, 2012!
We are going with West Trek Tours, and if you’ve ever been on one of their tours, you know you are going to have the best time! There will be a tour guide coming along to tell you everything you need to know about Seattle! This is city that is full of culture and history that has a really cool young vibe to it.
Other than shopping we will be exploring some of the most famous landmarks and must see places in Seattle. We will be going to downtown Seattle and along the way stopping at the Seattle Center and the Space Needle which was designed as a futuristic spaceship in 1962 for the world’s expo fair.
It’s an incredible tower that you cannot miss when you visit Seattle. Then, we will be visiting Safeco Field which is the arena for the Seattle Mariners, an American Baseball team.
Finally, we will be going to my favourite place: Pike Place Market! It’s one of the most visited places in Seattle because the seafood there is amazing. I always get a clam chowder at Pike Place Chowder and it is the best!
This is also where the first EVER Starbucks was built in 1971 and still exists! If you are a lover of coffee, this is a must see. Right below Pike Place is a really cool street called the Gum Wall, and as the name suggests, it’s a street with walls that are fully plastered with gum that have been chewed. I know, it’s one of the grossest things ever but why not add to the collection yourself?
Sign up at the event here on Facebook! It’ll be an awesome trip and we would appreciate it if you can let us know by this Friday!
