Visitors to the Emerald City have a new guide to exploring Seattle Southside’s hidden treasures and stand-out attractions. For the first time, Seattle Southside specific travel itineraries are now available online in the Group Tour sections of www.SeattleSouthside.com (http://www.seattlesouthside.com/page.php/group_travel/tour_itineraries) or, as always, customized itineraries for groups can be arranged to be picked up in person at the Seattle Southside Visitor Center.
Featuring visitor favorites like The Museum of Flight, the west coast’s largest aviation museum, the Southside travel itineraries also feature lesser known but acclaimed attractions like the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum, the country’s only museum dedicated to the history of race boats. Cultural attractions like the Great Wall Mall, a unique Asian shopping experience, makes the cut – as does Kent’s Historic Downtown shopping district where quaint streets and small shops flourish. Newly added itineraries include a wine-related "Uncorked" itinerary and a Public Art tour.
A trip to Seattle Southside would not be complete without experiencing the breathtaking views afforded by the beach front parks lining the west side of the cities. The Pacific Ocean, the Olympic Mountains, Islands and more can be seen from the vantage points of the beaches listed on the itineraries. Taking in the scenery of the landscapes is an additional bonus added to the itineraries by visiting the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden and the Green-Duwamish River Trail.
In addition to Southside itineraries, regional trips are also available – Downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier, Victoria, British Columbia, Mt. St. Helens, and more – as Seattle Southside makes an excellent base camp for exploring the entire Western Washington territory.
Seattle Southside Visitor Services services serves as the Office of Tourism for the cities of Tukwila, SeaTac, Kent and Des Moines. Just 15 minutes south of Downtown Seattle and minutes from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Seattle Southside is an ideal travel destination for tourists visiting Western Washington.
