While in Seattle on the recommendation of family I took the Seattle Free Walking Tour’s Seattle 101 tour. If you are visiting I highly recommend this as our guide Jake took us on a 2 hour walk filling us in on history of Seattle and some of his favorite spots for food and photos. He also reveals many hidden gems of things to see or do in the city. As implied by its name the tour has no cost and at the end you pay only what you feel or can. While the tour is free they do ask you make a reservation. Here is one of the stops in Pioneer Square at the Chief Seattle (Si’ahi). He was a prominent figure among his people and pursued a path of accommodation to the white settlers instead of war. The city of Seattle is named after him. You can learn more about Chief Seattle and the Squamish tribe here.

Hope you enjoy more of my vacation photos. This one is the Seattle skyline as taken from aboard the Washington State Department of Transportation Ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. If you want a great view of Seattle you may want to consider jumping on the ferry (as of this writing an adult fare is $8 and senior/children is $4) to Bainbridge Island. You can enjoy a great view of Seattle and a great ride then perhaps have a meal or do some shopping on Bainbridge Island. Best part of all is your return ferry trip to Seattle is free.  Below is the panorama I took. You can also view a larger size of the Seattle Panorama here.
