best way to go

Re: best way to go

Will you have rented a car or are you going to do this on transit?

Re: best way to go

by glabah

You are staying in a really neat area, and it is very close to downtown.

The transit system in Seattle has a fairly good on-line trip planner:
http://tripplanner.kingcounty.gov/
Then select "Plan a Trip"

Enter "Sea-Tac Airport" as the start (assuming that is the airport you are arriving - that's where most international traffic comes to) and "10th Ave E & E Prospect St" as the destination (the trip planner is unable to find this part of Broadway).

It tells you to take the SoundTransit train from the airport to the Westlake Station in Seattle, and then transfer to bus route 49 to the University. You then need to get off at 10th & Prospect, and walk 1 block west to Broadway.

To get back down the hill, you will need to get on bus route 49 going the other way. Once that gets downtown, you will want to transfer to bus route 70 going to King Street Station.

The eastbound train to Chicago doesn't leave Seattle until the afternoon, so if that is what you are taking you might want to spend a few hours exploring Seattle. You are only four blocks from Volunteer Park, which has a really nice view from the top of a water tower observation deck:

Travel Tips for Seattle

CIty Pass

by Jim_Eliason

The Seattle City Pass is a great way to save a bundle on Seattle sites. It's available online or you can purchase it at the Seattle Center.

You can get it online at http://citypass.com/city/seattle.html

You can see Mount Ranier as...

by Skylink

You can see Mount Ranier as you drive south of Seattle. It is a dormant volcano. Snoqualmie Falls is a tall waterfall, not as big as Gulfloss in Iceland, bigger than the US side of Niagara Falls, is about 30 km (20 mi) east of Seattle near I-90.
This is a photo of the Space Needle, which was built for the 1962 World's Fair. Compared to other towers in other cities or even compared to the buildings in downtown, it is not too tall. There is a revolving restaurant under the observation deck.

Amazon.com

by jamiesno

For all those dot com lovers and aspiring entrepreneurs you will know that Seattle is the place to be. You and Bill Gates could possibly stroll the University of Washington campus together, LOL.

In this picture you can see the Amazon.com headquarters. I took this picture from the Smith Tower. The building used to be a hospital that the company renovated but it’s a little piece of evidence how well those that survived the dot com boom really done.

Street Performers

by jamiesno

I remember really enjoying the feel of the streets in Seattle. They were very lively with lots of activity and the performers make the trekking around more enjoyable that's for sure.

This guy was playing some jazz in one of the small park areas.

Coffee Nirvana

by Johnscarroll

Seattle has a reputation for being wired on coffee - it's well deserved. Recent tests of Seattle sewer discharge water showed an elevated level of caffeine.

Starbuck's is headquarted in the SoDo neighborhood (south downtown) in a giant historic warehouse, and it traces its history to Seattle's civic soul - the Pike Place Public Market. It's no wonder that we Seattelites are coffee snobs.

For me and most of my friends, the idea of opening a can of Folgers is like suggesting that trailer parks are a preferred way of living! It may be true for some, but not most. Yes, most of us grind out beans fresh. The French Press method is preferred in my houshold.

So, if you come to Seattle - you must partake of our coffee culture. There are two ways of enjoying your coffee: on the go, or relaxed. I prefer the later. But, to enjoy that, one must seek certain locations. Look for leather armchairs and sofas.

Starbucks has a strong but bitter brew. I prefer Tully's or SBC. In both cases you can walk in, order, then enjoy a seat in a leather armchair and read the paper (the one in my neighborhood has a fireplace too.) Most Starbucks have wireless internet access (T-Mobile subscription required).

But don't just pursue the name brand coffee shops. Try some of the small non-chainstore establishments. I like Bauhaus Coffee or Cafe Vita - both on Capitol Hill. Also, Zeitgeist Coffee in Pioneer Square or Uptown Espresson in Belltown. If you drink in, many places will serve your coffee in a china cup or mug, which, in my opinion, heightens the experience.
