    Four of us are taking a trip to Seattle in June. Anyone have some ideas for us. We plan to do the tourist thing, then try to see some of the coast. Thanks, Georgia

    When we lived up there, I always loved going to Pike's Market Place down by the wharfs. There's all kinds of goodies to look at. Enjoy. It's beautiful up there in the summer. :thumbup:

    In Federal Way there is a rhodendeum garden. lots of other wild flowers, beautifully maintained.
    Take a Ferry boat ride.
    Lots of good restaurants & good shopping downtown.
    Plan on a full day at Pikes Market, so much to see.
    Take a heavy sweater, gets chilly even in June.
    Fabric Depot is in Portland Oregan, Nice drive, may be an overnight jaunt. Mt St Helens between Seattle & Portland. Also Mt Rainer is beautiful Park, but a long drive from Seattle.
    Have fun

    Well, it's a state away, in Portland.

    In Seattle we really enjoyed the tour of the underground.

    I read a review of the underground tour and several people said not to take it. Like going thru someone's crumbling basement. And the jokes were all sexual. Must be the tour guide.

    We took the tour quite a few years ago, and the tour guide's spiel was hilarious (and not with sexual jokes, though the "sewing ladies", who were actual prostitutes, were mentioned often). I found the history of the underground very interesting.
