I noticed that almost all the walks begin or end with a bite to eat (walk #2 Seattle Waterfront begins at Ivar's Fish Bar; walk #3 International District ends with Seattle Best Tea. Others mention coffee shops; Kapow! on walk #10 South Lake Union or Uptown Espresso on walk #12 Olympic Sculpture Park) which makes these walks perfect for taking after I get off work. Others, such as Kubota Gardens, Discovery Park, and Marsh and Foster Islands walks, do not. I usually take these walks on the weekends.
I like that the cards list the metro bus numbers that run along the beginning and end points, and include actual addresses of many of the points of interests.
Because I live in Seattle, naturally a lot of the points of interest I have already been to, but there are definately some I wasn't aware of! That's another reason I love these cards. For example, Walk #27 University of Washington- of course I've been to the Burke Museum (point of interest #1) and Agua Verde Paddle Club and Cafe (point of interest #8)- but I didn't know that the Theodor Jacobson Observatory (point of interest #2) was open for stargazing the first and third Weds Mar-Nov!
The cards are palm sized and made of thick coated paperboard, so I can throw them in my bag as I make my way to the start point and they don't get destroyed. They also resist rain and coffee stains.Read more ›
Highly recommended - anyone who doesn't love Seattle hasn't seen the best parts yet :-)

we wound up not using them for many of the reasons other people listed. It's not a looped walk and some of the places don't exist anymore.Published 8 months ago by earring lover
