Name That Neighborhood: A Visit to the Emerald City

Explorer C
Put on those thinking caps!  In “Name That Neighborhood,” we challenge you to master your geography skills and guess the SWA destination city from the clues provided.  Having trouble remembering all of the cities we service?  No problem—click here for our route map. Happy travels! When we think of this city, one of the first things that comes to mind is that classic love story-made-movie starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.  And as beautiful as this city is on the silver screen, it’s even more magnificent in person—whether you enjoy spending the day outdoors, strolling through markets, or sipping coffee, rest assured that you’ll never run out of things to do in the Emerald City!


Can you tell what chewy substance this wall is covered in?  If you’re thinking bubblegum—but finding that hard to believe—you’re actually correct!  The city’s Post Alley Gum Wall truly “sticks” out as a must-see attraction when you’re a tourist in town!


The well-known Pike Place Market in this city overlooks Elliott Bay and is home to some of the freshest seafood—and other tasty treats, flowers, and homemade gifts—you’ll find on the West Coast.  It’s easy to get lost strolling through the stores on the market’s multiple levels, but make sure you stop by the Pike Place Fish Market to see local mongers showing off their catches in their world famous fish throw!


Take a peek out our plane window from our flight into this city.  That mountain you’re seeing is Mt. Rainier, and it makes for a great photo op when you’re still high in the sky!  Close by are Mt. Adams and Mt. St. Helens, which you can also see if your plane is flying from the right direction (and if it’s a clear day in this very rainy city)! Think you know where to go if you want to check out this stunning city?  Comment below with your answer!
