This tour highlights a neighborhood filled with art and historic architecture most travelers miss when they visit, and it's a very unique slice of old Seattle that still survives. It's a time machine! After we explore Georgetown, we will visit the heart of West Seattle, aka "The Junction" to visit the best record store in the city and soak up the charm. Then we're off to Alki Beach, a local favorite with great people watching, stunning views of Elliott Bay, Bainbridge Island and the Olympic Mountains. We may even spot a sea lion, a harbor porpoise, an eagle or an Orca on Alki, you never know. These are the places I take my friends and family when they visit, I'd like to share them with you. With a max of 3 people,this is a personal "best of Seattle" tour that explores the places most visitors never see. Come explore with a 30 year local!
