Pioneer Square to West Seattle

Pioneer Square is the historical neighborhood in the southwest area of downtown. The stone and brick buildings above once-cobblestone streets are in contrast to the looming steel and glass structures of modern-day Seattle. The first white settlers moved to Elliott Bay from Alki in West Seattle, and the city grew and expanded from the waterfront.  

West Seattle is a neighborhood that used to be its own town.  It holds the history of the first white settlers who built their log cabin just up from the beach at  Alki. (Al-ki, rhymes with pie). They were met by the native Duwamish who helped the new neighbors through their first winter. The sandy saltwater beach at Alki now is a favorite summer hang-out, and on a sunny day, it's a lively destination for local and tourist alike. 

General itinerary: Chinatown/ Internat. District, Pioneer Square, Alki Beach. (This is a half-day tour, approx 4 hours, including a water taxi ride across Elliott Bay).
