Your First Time in Seattle



Description:

Seattle is the type of city where snowboarders drink green tea alongside attorneys at the local Japanese sushi bar. The diverse climate of Seattle leads to an energized city that leads the nation in technology, artistic, retail and industrial enterprises. The city's metropolitan delights are framed by the Olympic Mountains, Elliot Bay and Lake Washington. Strong cultural influences include Asian, Scandinavian, Native and Latin communities.

Day 1 - Seattle, Ashford, Berlin


Coffee is a major part of the Seattle identity, so starting at the PIke Place Market Starbucks is a great way to start the day. Rounding out the day is Tillicum Village, a four-hour experience departing from Pier 55 on Seattle's waterfront. Following a 50-minute narrated boat ride to Blake Island, visitors are served traditional Native-style meal, including arguably some of the best salmon to be had in the region. A sweet brown bread accompanies the meal, along with small chocolates shaped like salmon following the feast. Following dinner, the Tillicum Village dancers perform a half-hour show.
