SEATTLE WATERFRONT
Seattle has one of the most magnificent, awe-inspiring seaports in the world. The views are spectacular; the popular Summer Nights at the Pier concerts play at sublime Pier 62/63. The Seattle Aquarium, the Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center are also here. The old streetcar clangs along the length of the waterfront, and the green spaces of Myrtle Edwards Park take over from the concrete mayhem at the northern end.
Seattle City View
Seattle downtown skyline is highlighted by the Space Needle, which towers 605 feet (184 meters) above the Seattle Center.

Corporate home to Microsoft and Amazon.com and birthplace of heavyweights Boeing, United Parcel Service, Costco, and Starbucks Coffee. Seattle is commonly referred to as the Emerald City and highly regarded as one of the best places anywhere to work, live and play.

Seattle Downtown
Downtown is the central business district of Seattle, Washington. It is fairly compact compared to other city centers on the West Coast because of its geographical situation: hemmed in on the north and east by hills, on the west by Elliott Bay, and on the south by reclaimed land that was once tidal flats. Downtown Seattle is rapidly growing with a number of high-rises going up with the majority of them residential. There is no sign that the growth will stop for the time being.

Museum of Flight Seattle Boeing
NO CHECK-IN LINES! NO GATE HOLDS! NO LOST LUGGAGE!
There was a time in your life when "flight" was about dreams and imagination, not delays and hassles. At The Museum of Flight, it still is. Just ten minutes from downtown Seattle, the magic of flight lives on, and it's yours to rediscover. The Museum has acquired a British Airways Concorde-the only one on the West Coast! Concorde arrived in true style setting a new world's record time from New York to Seattle.
Seattle Boeing: SR-71 spy plane
The Museum of Flight in Seattle is the only place where civilians can sit in the cockpit of a U.S. SR-71 spy plane. It's also where a pioneering fighter aircraft, a 1914 Italian Caproni, is displayed after having been walled up in a monastery for more than a half-century. Trenner says to start your tour in the Red Barn, "where William E. Boeing took his first steps to becoming one of the world's aerospace giants." Check out historic Lear jets and the Concorde.
Seattle City Night
Downtown Seattle's Columbia Center has a greater number of floors than any other building west of the Mississippi River, at seventy-six, though there are taller buildings in Texas and California by height. (Smith Tower, in the older section of Downtown near the waterfront, once held the title of tallest American building west of the Mississippi.) Other notable buildings are the Washington Mutual Tower, Two Union Square, Nordstrom's flagship store, Benaroya Hall, the new Seattle Central Library designed by Rem Koolhaas, and an expanded art museum, the main facade of which was designed by Robert Venturi.
Seattle Cascade Mountain
Downtown has a very modern skyline of glass skyscrapers that can be seen across the bay. The city now has a restored old center, an acclaimed arts scene with amazing movie and music industries. There are many excellent food and coffee houses, as well as a great selection of seafood restaurants.
