Description

“...for the adventurous traveler who wants to live like a native."
-- Real Simple Magazine

Click your heels, grab your iPhone, and head for Emerald City, with Lonely Planet’s Seattle City Guide. Whatever draws you to the cultural hub of the Pacific Northwest – a pilgrimage to the birthplace of grunge; seeking like minds in this playground of left coast liberals; scouring Georgetown for the perfect brew; or perhaps catching the world-class Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall – you’re bound to find your heart’s desire at the end of this rainbow (if, that is, it ever stops raining!)

We’ve harnessed the power of your iPhone to take our lauded Seattle City Guide to the next dimension. Imagine you’ve spent all morning mooching around Pike Place Market, you’ve worked up an Olympian appetite, and you need to know where the best local feed can be found. Just whistle up your exact location on one of our intelligent maps, filter or search for a list of eateries within walking distance, and you’re there. Or perhaps you want to stretch your legs on a guided tour of the waterfront? Or read up on local culture, history and customs? It’s all here, and it’s all fresh!
