Overview

The Queen City of the Pacific Northwest was once known principally for the spectacular forests, mountains, and waters surrounding it.

But now, what's in Seattle is as famous as what's outside it. This is a vibrant young city full of attractions. It's a center for several hi-tech industries and a crossroads of global cultures.

Seattle is also one of the most walkable cities in the country. It's full of cozy bungalows, stately mansions, postmodern palaces, and outdoor art all over. It has wide boulevards, narrow cobblestone lanes, and carless pedestrian pathways.

Walking Seattle reveals 35 specially designed urban treks that are not only good exercise but are a great way to soak up the city's history, culture, parks, and vibe.

Commentary includes trivia about architecture, local culture, and neighborhood history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, or shop.

Each tour includes a neighborhood map and vital public transportation and parking information.

Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a “Points of Interest” section lists each walk’s highlights.

Local insider Clark Humphrey leads you from Greenwood to Rainier Beach, from Green Lake to Fauntleroy, and many places in between.

Walking Seattle. Get it, and get moving.

Some of the directions are outdated. The Foster Island walk doesn't have MOHAI any more, so that maybe confusing. It's nice to check off the walks and learn about Seattle history as well as see the various neighborhoods.
