Situated on Puget Sound, surrounded by the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, the Seattle city skyline is impressive with shimmering glass high-rises and 100-year-old buildings standing side by side. This beautiful port city came into its own after gold was discovered in the Klondike and 100, 000 people passed through the Northwest in 1897 and 1898 on their quest for wealth in Alaska.

Pioneer Square
At the Klondike Gold Rush Museumyou can find gold-dust history as well as a vibrant jazz nightlife in turn-of-the-century Pioneer Square where the city first took root.

Puget Sound
As ferries crisscross the Puget Sound, nature steals the show with the Olympic Mountains to the west, the Cascade Range to the east, and towering Mt. Rainier to the south.

Space Needle
The observation deck of the Space Needle offers panoramic views, from the Pike Place Market to the waterfront and the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges.
