Visiting the Seattle Area
Summer is a great time to visit Seattle. There's a bunch of different things to do and I think it makes more sense if you have a map of the whole area. Some key points are numbered on the map, click on them to get more information.
The SeaTac airport is halfway between Seattle and Tacoma and considerably far outside of Seattle. You can take the bus or the light rail into downtown. The light rail unfortunately does not go to the east side (Bellevue/Redmond).
