3 Days in Seattle
Known to many as the 'Emerald City' because of its famous, lush, evergreen forests, Seattle has an ecological diversity. It has access to mountains, ocean, a rainforest, desert, city, farmland, islands, and even a volcano!
Day 1 Highlights
City Tour and Snoqualmie Falls
Find out what makes Seattle one of the most popular areas in the US on this half-day Snoqualmie Falls and Seattle city tour. Visit Snoqualmie Falls, and then journey into the vibrant interior of Seattle itself. Sit back and enjoy the sights of the Emerald City from your window seat as you pass Pioneer Square, Fremont Troll, and a top city vantage point. Ample time at each stop is included.
Hot Tub Boats
Created in 2011, Hot Tub Boats is Seattle’s premier boat rental experience. Located on Lake Union, renters enjoy the Seattle skyline and revolving scenery from the comfort of a hot tub. Joystick navigation, bluetooth speakers, and storage space for food and drinks make this the most unique way to get out and see the city, regardless of weather!
The Walrus and the Carpenter

Gas Works Park
Once a gas plant and now turned into a park, Gas Works Park is one of the most unique things to see in Seattle and one of the most unusual parks we have ever heard of. Now people come here to relax and hang out while enjoying the view of Lake Union. It sure makes for an interesting photo!
Started in the 1990s when local patrons in line for an improv show at Post Alley’s Market Theater stuck their used gum on the wall, the Gum Wall has grown piece by piece to cover an enormous expanse of brick wall and continues to expand down the alleyway. The resulting colors and overall imagery are fascinating. The stench of decaying and aged chewing gum can be a bit offensive, but the Gum Wall is still an intriguing sight.
Discover the magic and wonders of the underwater world and sea life with a visit to Seattle Aquarium.
