One mile north of the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) along the Waterfront lies Olympic Sculpture Park. Owned and operated by SAM, the park is filled with awe-inspiring works that, combined with the surrounding views, provide an outdoor landscape like no other. Among the sculptures found here is “Eagle” by Alexander Calder (opposite page), which offers views of either the Space Needle or Elliott Bay, depending on which direction you view it from. “Echo” by Jaume Plensa (above), based on a mountain nymph of Greek mythology, provides a changing perspective as you walk past that will have you convinced your mind is playing tricks on you. These, along with many other works of art found throughout the park, make it a must-stop destination on any visitor’s itinerary of the Emerald City. WHERE GUEST BOOK

AT THE WATER’S EDGE

Interactive museums, panoramic views, scrumptious seafood and a strong sense of history make Lake Union Park a must-visit.

Throughout history, Lake Union has been many things to many people. For thousands of years, the Duwamish tribe lived around it, calling it XáXu7cHoo, or Little Lake, and using the old-growth western red cedar that ringed the shoreline for dug-out canoes and longhouses. In 1854, settler Thomas Mercer renamed it Lake Union, and it became an industrial hub for everything from brickyards and boatyards to sawmills and gas plants. The area welcomed seaplanes in the 1910s—perhaps the name Bill Boeing rings a bell—and in this millennium became a biotechnology hot spot and home of Amazon’s headquarters. To celebrate all that the lake has represented throughout the years, Lake Union Park was officially created in 2010 to highlight the area’s cultural, industrial and maritime roots. 26

MOHAI, The Museum of History & Industry, is housed in a Naval Reserve Armory and offers magnificent views of Lake Union.


The anchor of Lake Union Park is MOHAI, the Museum of History & Industry, housed in the stately Naval Reserve Armory. Their permanent exhibits “True Northwest: The Seattle Journey,” “Bezos Center for Innovation” and “Maritime Seattle” help tell the story of Seattle in an interactive way. The exhibits examine how factors like a dramatic landscape, the city’s long and significant relationship with water, a diverse population and an innovative spirit have shaped the city’s character. Next door, the Center for Wooden Boats (CWB) is another standout museum, and it goes way beyond artifacts in glass cases—here, you can take the historic vessels for a spin, try your hand at tying knots, and practice tapping out Morse code. Part of CWB, the newly opened Wagner Education Center, a gorgeous building that smells of cedar and is free to explore, offers the chance to watch volunteers work on the boats and learn about the culture around getting out on the water. CWB also hosts a variety of fun programs, including the popular Sunday Public Sail.

FLOATING HISTORY Before roads were plentiful, getting around Seattle looked a little different than it does today. So many steamboats and sternwheelers crisscrossed the waters that a reporter once remarked that they “swarmed like mosquitoes,” and thus their nickname of the Mosquito Fleet was born. See one of the last remaining examples behind MOHAI at the Historic Ships Wharf, where the Virginia V is now a living museum open for dockside tours and public sails. The nonprofit Northwest Seaport hosts a Monthly Chantey Sing aboard, where anyone is welcome to come and sing the call-and-response folk songs of the sea. The Historic Ships Wharf boasts more star power, including the Arthur Foss (1889), which starred in the 1933 28

movie “Tugboat Annie”; the lightship Swiftsure (1904), which rescued 155 shipwreck survivors in 1916 and was a naval patrol vessel in WWII; and the Seattle Fireboat Duwamish (1909), which heroically fought waterfront fires for 75 years. For a flavor of Edwardian cruising, the 1909 houseboat Lotus hosts an afternoon tea every second Sunday of the month, and welcomes guests who want to stay overnight in the refined digs.

TAKE A TOUR You only have to be in Lake Union Park for a couple of minutes before you’re bound to see a seaplane taking off or landing, but you can do one better than that by boarding Kenmore Air’s Seattle Scenic Seaplane Tour. The roughly 20-minute flight soars past Lake Union’s houseboats, the city’s sports stadiums and all the highlights of the downtown skyline. Another one-of-a-kind tour is Argosy Cruises’ Locks Cruise, which starts downtown and ends in Lake

For fun and games with your food and drink, try Art Marble 21, where you can play pool, shuffleboard, bocce ball and arcade classics (all free) while sipping a glass of wine or noshing on empanadas. Nearby, Flatstick Pub dishes up pizza and craft beer and features a festive 9-hole mini golf course featuring elevation changes, kegs that serve as obstacles and even a 12-foot-tall Sasquatch. Afterwards, challenge your friends at board games or Duffleboard, a mashup table game of their own invention.

Latte art—seen here on the microfoam of this Milstead & Co. cappuccino—is an example of how the art of making coffee has grown since 1971.


COFFEE CULTURE

The original Starbucks, founded in 1971 at Pike Place Market, aimed to develop an advanced and—at the time—unique way of drinking coffee, an idea that a new generation of Seattle-based coffee shops are also promoting in their own way.

©DAN COLE

BY TAYLOR CLAYTON

In 1971, a vision was born as three former University of San Francisco students came together to open the first Starbucks coffee shop, located in Pike Place Market. Originally selling whole bean and ground coffee, Starbucks eventually grew under new ownership to sell brewed coffee drinks and lattes. This new way of making coffee developed into what is now known as the “second wave” of coffee shops, with the Starbucks conglomerate at the forefront of the new movement. Today, with roughly 24,000 retail stores in more than 70 countries, Starbucks has created an empire and with it placed Seattle on the map. The rapid growth of the Starbucks franchise gave birth to coffee drinkers looking for quality over quantity. With this newfound desire, “third wave” coffee shops began to pop up around the dawn of the new millennium, especially here in Seattle. As a result, the Emerald City is now home to a plethora of coffee shops that provide their own way of brewing coffee, each with its authentic vibe, following similar ideals the original Starbucks coffee shop pioneered.

“Starbucks definitely made the market for lattes in the United States. The 12-ounce latte is the financial backbone of all independent third-wave cafes,” says Seattle Coffee Works founder and owner Sebastian Simsch. Simsch, along with his wife and business partner Pipo Bui, opened their first pop-up coffee shop in 2006 in downtown and originally was one of the only two coffee roasters in the area. Their goal was to sell more quality espresso—such as macchiatos—in a section of the city they felt was lacking quality coffee options (this shop was also close to the first Starbucks coffee shop location). Their dream eventually blossomed into the Seattle Coffee Works we know today, with four locations in the city, all with names related to the Seattle neighborhood in which they reside: Seattle Coffee Works in downtown (relocating to 108 Pine Street in mid-October 2019), Ballard Coffee Works in Ballard, Capitol Coffee Works in Capitol Hill and Cascade Coffee Works in South Lake Union. Not only do these shops connect with the area, but they also provide a unique atmosphere and method of brewing. WHERE GUEST BOOK

Being a former member of the music industry, Steiner lived a rock ’n’ roll lifestyle and wanted a mellow place to drink coffee. “My business partner and I worked in music, we did live audio, we mixed different instruments for rock bands that were playing live, and we were traveling all around the world, around the states a bunch of times, constantly on the road, and coffee was something that we always really enjoyed,” says Steiner. A lot of third wave coffee shops tend to lean on bright colors to help customers wake up in the morning, whereas Anchorhead allows coffee drinkers to wake up on their own terms. The drink options at Anchorhead reflect their owners’ creative mindset as well, with a large variety of atypical caffeine and tea options, such a nitro mint cold brews and pistachio milk green tea matcha. Milstead & Co. in Fremont does its best to cater to all kinds of coffee drinkers: those who want to sit back and sip a latte and those who need a quick boost on their way to work. “Some folks come in looking to dig a little deeper on the coffee menu and find something new to them,” says owner

“Amazing coffee, kind people, cozy spaces, that’s basically what our vibe is,” says Simsch. “We have our Slow Bar, and at the Slow Bar we offer various manual brew methods that change from time to time, so we always have five different brew methods available: three pour-over methods, the vacuum pot and the AeroPress.” Simsch not only has a unique way of brewing coffee, but he also gathers his resources in unconventional ways. “We’re one of two roasters in the country that are completely 100 percent also an importer. We import directly from Guatemala and Ethiopia. We book our own containers currently and, with help from other companies, are getting coffee from Honduras, Ecuador and Kenya.” While a handful of coffee shops in Seattle aim to provide a bright space, this is, however, the birthplace of grunge, and some shops such as Anchorhead Coffee Co. want to provide the exact opposite of that. “We like to do the opposite of what people do just to be different,” explains Anchorhead owner Mike Steiner. “The vibe is pretty relaxing but we went with really dark colors with our cafe.”


Andrew Milstead. “Others know just what they want and are simply hoping to get in, grab a tasty beverage, and get on to work, home, etc. My goal is to create an atmosphere that is welcoming to every person and kindly facilitate the type of experience each guest is hoping to have.” “My first espresso-based beverage was at 14 at the first Starbucks to open in my smallish town,” says Milstead, who pointed out there are now over a dozen today in that very same town. “I distinctly remember feeling cool, grown up and aware of how the experience was as of yet, singular for me. I am unsure if it was actually Starbucks that coined the [third wave] phrase, but I do know that they introduced the idea to me and it immediately resonated.” Milstead prefers the classic method of straight espresso or espresso with a little milk, in order to explore the true depths of a coffee’s flavor. It’s clear he and many other Seattle coffee shop owners want to do things their own way, whether it turns them into the next coffee franchise or just a local favorite.

There is also a multitude of historic sites, outdoor activities and stunning natural beauty to add to the mix. Begin the day outdoors with a hike, some skiing or kayaking before heading into a more urban environment for an evening of trendy shops and decadent restaurants in the Downtown, Proctor and Stadium districts. Tacoma has plenty of options for adventures. An excursion to Point Defiance Park allows you to explore more than 14 miles of urban trails, a rose garden, a Japanese garden and rocky beaches. While you’re there, check out Fort Nisqually Living History Museum or encounter wildlife at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Visit the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory, featuring 200 species of exotic tropical flora. Experience the grand Ruston Way waterfront, a 2-mile promenade perfect for jogging, biking and parasailing.

In the heart of downtown lies Tacoma’s Museum District, an expansive hub of culture. Find the Tacoma Art Museum, the Museum of Glass, the Washington State History Museum and LeMay—America’s Car Museum here. Linking them together is the spectacular Chihuly Bridge of Glass, a 500-foot-long pedestrian walkway, and historic Union Station, filled with works by world-renowned artist and Tacoma native Dale Chihuly. Much like the Museum District, the Theater District is anchored by three superb facilities, each filling its own niche. The Broadway Center for the Performing Arts and its three facilities—the Pantages Theater, the Rialto Theater and the Theatre on the Square—offer a variety of year-round entertainment amid beautiful beaux arts decor. Adjacent to the Theater District is Antique Row, where numerous shops offer a wide range of antiques and collectibles. Wherever you go and whatever you choose to do while visiting the greater Seattle area, there is enough to keep you busy for days on end.

COLORFUL HISTORY. CRAFT COCKTAILS. KILLER VIEWS. In 1914, Smith Tower became the first skyscraper in Seattle and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. For more than one hundred years, it has remained a cultural icon of the city, offering breathtaking panoramic views and spectacular architectural beauty. Today, it features an entirely reimagined visitor experience including a ground-floor gathering place with gifts, historical exhibits telling tales through time, and a renovated Observatory with an open-air observation deck and a speakeasy-style bar. On your way to the top of the tower, explore the colorful history of Smith Tower with stories, figures, and moments that have made it a beloved Seattle gem. The Legends of Smith Tower exhibits provide a glimpse into a time when Seattleites were coming to terms with early Prohibition and technology that would soon transform their city.

The experience culminates in the Observatory, formerly known as the Chinese Room, showcasing the original elements of the historic space including ornate ceiling tiles, the famed Wishing Chair, and other artifacts that pay homage to its vibrant past and memories shared by visitors over the years. Sit back and enjoy a conversation in the clouds over a locallyinspired menu and craft cocktails with a pinch of Prohibition that pays homage to Smith Tower’s rum-running roots. 506 Second Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104

THE FISHERMAN’S

THE CRAB POT

Located at the end of Pier 57 on the historic Seattle Waterfront, The Fisherman’s Restaurant and Bar offers a fine family dining atmosphere with truly spectacular views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains. The Fisherman’s menu features fresh, local fish, clams, oysters and crab prepared in traditional Northwest Style. The famous feast-style dinners originated with the owner when he came up with the idea through his interest in fishing, clam digging and catching crab and other special seafood native to the Pacific Northwest. The tradition in the Northwest is to gather as a group and enjoy fresh-caught seafood as a multi-course meal. The Fisherman’s feast-style dinners include four courses, beginning with a salad, followed by a steaming cup of award-winning chowder, a bucket of clams and mussels, and the choice of five main courses from which to choose, including cod, crab, halibut, prawns or salmon. Open for lunch and dinner daily.

The Crab Pot Restaurant and Bar is located within Miner’s Landing on Pier 57. This rustic waterfront dining room features nautical décor, a large aquarium filled with live Dungeness crab, and mountains of iced shellfish from the local waters. Large glass windows open out onto a deck with shaded outdoor seating. It’s a great place to take in the sights and sounds of the waterfront. The house specialty at the Crab Pot is The Seafeast for Two. Choose from four variations, but always expect to have your silverware removed and replaced with a mallet, butcher paper laid before you and a bib tied around your neck. The Westport includes Dungeness crab, Littleneck clams, Hood Canal mussels, Snow crab from Alaska, shrimp in the shell and more. Poured right on the table, this feast is definitely a fun experience! Two great locations – in Seattle and Bellevue – are ready to serve you.
