Downtown Seattle along Alaskan Way
A lot of visitors to Seattle head down the hill from Pike Place Market to the waterfront, home to a number of shops and restaurants, the Seattle Aquarium, ferry terminals, historical markers, great views and cruise ship terminals. You can take a sightseeing cruise on Elliot Bay or just stroll along the waterfront taking in the views of the bay, the Olympic Mountains, Mt. Rainier and the Seattle skyline.
Seattle Waterfront (A14A0032)
The Seattle waterfront follows Alaskan Way.
Waterfront View Of Elliot Bay and the Olympic Mountains (Z12A0032)
Waterfront View of Stadiums and Mt. Rainier (Z12A0033)
When the mountain is out, Mt. Rainier is an impressive sight beyond Seattle's football and baseball stadiums. Mt. Rainier is about 55 miles from downtown Seattle as the raven flies.
Ye Olde Curiosity Shop (Z13A0021)
Ye Olde Curiosity Shop is a waterfront tradition, and offers a fun collection of artwork, souvenirs and novelty items along with its historic artifacts.
Downtown Seattle (A14A0043)
This is my downtown Seattle neighborhood. On the waterfront in the lower left is the Edgewater Hotel, which actually extends out over the water. The Beatles stayed here and famously fished out of their suite's window. The Beatles Suite can be reserved for your stay.
