The Seattle Underground is a network of underground passageways and basements in downtown Seattle. The Seattle Underground was the original ground level at the city’s origin in the mid-19th century. Our friend recommended as one of the things to do when in Seattle. In fact our friend recommended LOTS of things to do in Seattle. He stayed there for a summer in college and out of all the things he recommended, we pursued going to the Underground Tour because it was one of the more unique things to do.
The tour was funny and informational about Seattle’s history from a town being with sidewalks cover in…well…I don’t want to spoil anything for you. Overall, I highly recomend the tour. I spoke to my husband’s Seattle-native cousin about the tour and she had no idea about its history.
100+ year old saloon and bathroom.
There is a little bit of walking and climbing up the stairs to present Seattle and down the stairs seeing Seattle from the past.
Old Seattle street signs and sidewalks.
When walking around present-day Pioneer Square, you’ll notice the purple glass tiles on the sidewalk. From the underground, this is what it looks like.
