Are you an architecture geek looking for something to do in Seattle? Or maybe you are simply looking for some walking tours for your visit to Seattle? If so, pick up a copy of Seattle Architecture: A Walking Guide to Downtown.
Not your typical guidebook, this book starts out with a historical overview and timeline featuring the people and events that have shaped modern Seattle. It gives you nine walking tours, starting with Pioneer Square and ending at Seattle Center, with maps and detailed notes about architects and history of particular buildings.
I’ve been in Seattle over 10 years, and have been by these buildings and sites countless times, but this book gave me a great education about places that are so familiar.
