There’s no question that Boeing is an economic juggernaut in the Greater Seattle Area. If you live around here, and you don’t work for Boeing, chances are that you know someone who does. Even though the jumbo jet and aerospace manufacturer seems to be everywhere, many of us have not had the luxury of viewing the process of building a plane up close. If you haven’t, and you’re curious, take a ride with Show Me Seattle Tours up to the Boeing Factory in Everett!
Show Me Seattle has been giving quintessential Seattle tours for over 22 years and the Boeing Tour is one of their most popular. Their friendly tour guides will pick you up from your hotel, take you up to Everett (about 40-60 minutes from downtown Seattle), and guide you through the wonders of the Future of Flight exhibit and the Boeing Factory tour.
For guests staying at Sea-Tac area hotels, Show Me Seattle has a convenient pick-up location near Seattle’s Westlake light rail station.
At the Future of Flight Exhibit, you’ll learn about the history and innovative spirit of Boeing through interactive exhibits, a flight simulator, and a mockup of the ultra-modern Dreamliner Interior. After you learn about the past, present, and future of Boeing, it’s time to witness the assembly process in action…
The Boeing Factory Tour takes you through the largest building in the world. The assembly plant is where the 747, 777, and 787 “Dreamliner” come together in spectacular fashion. Look down from the “Strato Deck” and view planes in various stages of assembly. The tour will give you a new appreciation of the Boeing assembly process and ingenuity, and the highly advanced planes created in this larger than life structure.
After your tour, hop back on the Show Me Seattle bus and ride back to your hotel in style.
