For me part of sightseeing includes checking out the crowds and the local people and how they interact among themselves and visitors. Sightseeing is more than just looking at the prairies in Kansas or beautiful Black Hill of South Dakota, Yellowstone River running through Wyoming and Montana, or the forest and coastline in Oregon or even the Cactus Forest we saw in Arizona. It also about checking out the people in crowded streets of downtown Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria, and San Francisco or the people who or at the other table is restaurants in Newport, Oregon or San Diego California or the waiters and waitresses who served us in Oklahoma City, Seattle, Vancouver, Oakland and El Paso. There is a lot to see on the wonderful continent and my wife and I take try to take in all the sights; the natural environment, the man-made structures such as the Space Needle in Seattle, the monuments and museums and even the people.

Pike's Public Market is a wonderful shopping experience. Whether you're looking to buy the freshest seafood, fruit, vegetables or flowers, you will find it there! If you're shopping for souvenirs, that's the place. If you enjoy antiques or unique & interesting trinkets, you'll find them there too! The possibilities are endless!

There are some great local sushi places in Seattle. Many of them pride themselves on using unique and local ingredients. I'm a traditional sushi snob and there were a couple that really stand out as excellent.

Sorry my stay of 4 days was too short to recommend food outlets. I had a bad experience at a Cafe called "Biscuit Bitch". So called biscuit was overpowered with soda and tasted bitter! Unfortunately it was recommended by Mayflower Park Hotel's Concierge!

We went to the Seattle Seahawks game and everyone was so friendly at the event. The security folks were very helpful, the fans were so nice and even the fans from the other team. I was amazed and everywhere we went folks were so helpful if we had a question. I would recommend this city to anyone.

One of the locations of the Seattle Art Museum is in downtown, very close to Pike Market. There are free tours with admissions. The tours are very informative and helpful.

Getting around by car can be tough because of construction detours & lots of tourists! They do have a good transit system, but we preferred to walk more to appease our exploring side. It is possible to walk the majority of Seattle's sites in one day!

This area is rich in history from the gold fever/mining days to today. This area has seen much change and undergone some incredible events such as major earthquakes and rebuilt to what it is today. This is also where the history of flight begins with the first Boeing Planes to the major manufacturing plants found in Everett and Renton. Starbucks and Microsoft also were founded here to become the giants they are today. The area is rich in talent that is found in the history of this area.

Seattle's downtown area and the Queen Ann area of Seattle which is where we stayed are really neat area to visits. There's the Space Needle, Pike's Place Market, Olympic Park, Safeco Baseball Park and so many other things to check out in Seattle. It is great place to visit.

The NW has the greatest concentration of artist 2nd only to NM. The diversity in art mediums and the quality of the fine art found in the Puget Sound will astound you. Do NOT limit yourself to Seattle! Go North up through Bellingham and South to Olympia and Vancouver to discover all the artists that the Puget Sound contains. The value found as you venture out of Seattle will amaze you.
