Daily Itinerary


Upon arrival in Seattle, you will meet with your Tour Manager and head to Pike Place Market. Born in 1907, Seattle’s Pike Place Market is the granddaddy of farmers’ markets. They have flowers by the bucketful, flying fish, fresh pastries and fruit, handmade cheeses, local honey, wine, an assortment of restaurants, import goods, antiques, collectibles and lots of surprises around every corner.

In the afternoon, you will go to the Seattle Art Museum. The museum offers an outstanding permanent collection and notable special exhibits.

To end the night, you’ll have some free time to roam after dinner.


This morning you’ll go to The Space Needle. Enjoy a 41-second elevator ride that takes you up 520 feet to the observation deck of the Space Needle, which was built for the 1962 World’s Fair with epic views of the city.

From there, you will go to Olympic Sculpture Park, a nine-acre open and vibrant green space that is home to art. This waterfront park gives Seattle residents and visitors the opportunity to experience a variety of sculpture in an outdoor setting, while enjoying panoramic views and beauty of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound.

After lunch, you will go to the Seattle Asian Art Museum that features noteworthy collections of Chinese, Korean, and Southeast Asian art, and its Japanese art collection is among the most distinguished outside of Japan. You’ll then go to the Henry Art Gallery which is the oldest public art museum in the state. This museum serves as a catalyst for some of the most exciting new work.

In the evening, you’ll go down to Seattle Center for some free time to walk around and explore.


Today, you’ll begin your day at the Frye Art Museum where you will get to see collections of 19th and 20th century American, German, and French paintings.

From there, you will head to Tacoma for half the day.
