- Locks Cruise Combo: Even for people who are not that interested in ships, the Locks Cruise tour is fascinating enough, as it explains the complicated workings of how the Seattle Locks system works, along with how it carries out its original purpose of existence, which is to transport coal and timber from Lake Washington from its eastern shores.
Some of the other highlights on the tour include the following locations:
- Seattle Center:Â The Seattle center is a prime center for arts, entertainment and recreation in the city. It is the place that hosts Experience Music Project and the Science fiction museum along with historical landmarks such as the Kobe Bell.
- Pioneer Square: Home of the firefighter's memorial, this square is in the southwest corner of Downtown Seattle, which was once known as the heart of the city. The earliest structures of the Pioneer Square were all wooden, which burnt down in the Great Seattle fire in 1889, which have now been replaced by stone buildings, constructed in the style of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture of the late 19th century.
