Tours and Smart Stuff
Richard Hugo House (Capitol Hill: Walkable or bus)
1634 11th Avenue (map and directions)
Center for the literary arts supporting writers. Classes, performances, and a great zine library.
November events will be posted here, but you can visit when there is not an event and check out the house and the zine library.
For anyone who loves writing or books, you should visit Hugo House.
Ride the Ducks (Seattle Center or Downtown: Walkable)
5th and Broad, or 4th and Pine
Amphibious tour of Seattle.
Campy fun. Really!
Seattle UnderGround Tour (Pioneer Square: Walkable or bus)
608 First Ave
I enjoyed this, but I’ve heard mixed reviews from others. Much depends on your mood and the quality of your guide.
You get a tour beneath the sidewalks of Pioneer Square, which is neat if you like that kind of thing, and aren’t seven feet tall (or are good at stooping).
Seattle Public Library: Central Library Tour (Downtown: Walkable)
1000 Fourth Avenue
You either love or hate the Seattle Central Library, but it’s fun to walk through it either way. It’s an architectural wonderland or nightmare, depending on who you are.
There is an hour long tour you can sign up for, or you can just go in and check it out yourself. There’s nothing quite like it.
