    Visit Pioneer Square, a big area of shops, boutiques, and restaurants, in an area with overhanging trees and even a totem pole or two! Anyway, this was a nice place to stroll around, going into a shop or two, maybe get a cup of coffee or something like that. It's called 'Bum-town' by at least one person I know from Seattle... I guess you sometimes see a bum or two in this area, according to him.

    Underground Seattle

    by CubsIn4 Written Aug 26, 2002

    Because of its location, many of the city's earliest buildings are now underground, and the tour shows you some of these places while offering an entertaining history lesson. For first-time visitors it's a great introduction to the city's very young history.

    THe underground city of Seattle's past.
    When the old town was built after the fire of 1889, the new city was built over it. The old streets and some buildings are still there. Tours leave from Pioneer Square. We really wanted to do this, but ran out of time.

    Seattle's oldest neighborhood, now a historic district. It comes alive after dark. The historic district becomes entertainment district, with one of the city s liveliest collections of nightspots, from sports bars to hard rock taverns to romantic eaterie

    The Underground Tour was really interesting and is unique to Seattle. The guys who take the tour are very funny and they definitly make the tour what it is.

    The aquarium is also excellent, especially the sea otters and seals.

    Pioneer Square -- the heart of Old Seattle. Imagine Asians and Europeans working together yet often separately to build a great city. This is where it happened!

    The earthquake did not do TOO much damage but if you look carefully you can see this block in Pioneer Square that is crubling.

    Just get out and drive around the city, there is so much to do and see. From Pioneer Square, to the Space Needle, to driving along the water, you just can't beat it.
