Best Free Tours in Seattle
Welcome to Seattle, a bustling metropolis surrounded by majestic forests of deciduous trees that earned it the moniker of Emerald City. There are so many attractions and activities to enjoy here that we recommend joining Free Walking Tours in Seattle with a guide, so you can get the most of your visit in the shortest amount of time! The Essential Seattle City Tour is the ultimate walk to discover the origins, landmarks and lifestyle of the city, focusing on the historic area around Pioneer Square. Some Free Seattle Waterfront Tours focus specifically on this hectic open-air promenade with seemingly infinite tourist attractions. Foodies can’t miss the Free Pike Place Market Tour, covering the best shops and food at Seattle's largest market. Additionally, there are also private tours that will take visitors to explore the underground tunnels under Pioneer Square for a fee.
Highlights of a Free Tour of Seattle
Seattle is an exciting city that has been featured in so many movies and series (‘Grey's Anatomy’, ‘Frasier’, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, ‘Six Feet Under’...) that first-time travelers might feel like revisiting a memory! With Free Tours in Seattle, you will discover the best highlights downtown, starting from the very first neighborhood settled by the pioneers, Pioneer Square. There, you will learn about the mysterious network of underground passageways and basements just below your feet. Some Seattle Free Walking Tours will also cover the Seattle Art Museum, the Central Public Library and Pike Place Market. This 11-acre market district never fails to surprise tourists with its rich history, delicious food and vibrant character. Belltown, Chihuly Garden and Glass, and the Space Needle are other must-see landmarks. However, if you want to explore the most alternative side of Seattle, go to the Gum Wall and the Fremont Troll!
Things to Do in Seattle
The Emerald City is perfect for planning one-day or multi-day excursions to the natural wonders in this area: from mountains, to beaches, a rainforest, islands, and even a volcano. In particular, it’s well worth driving a few hours or taking a high-speed passenger vessel to San Juan Islands, the best place to spot whales, especially orcas. In case you want to see maritime life without leaving the city, head to the famous Seattle Aquarium located on Pier 59. But the state of Washington is also noteworthy for its music scene. Seattle was the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Soundgarden, the Shins, Kenny G, Pearl Jam... It’s even one of the few cities in the world credited with the invention of its own music genre: grunge. So, as expected, Seattle offers the best live music scene in all the USA. Pick your genre and get ready to party!
