The group enjoyed an actionpacked itinerary care

first_imgThe group enjoyed an action-packed itinerary, carefully curated to showcase Seattle’s very best – with highlights including a culinary tour of Pike Place Market, the oldest, continuously operated, public market in the US; a tour of The Boeing Factory where the new 787 Dreamliners are assembled; and a trip to the top of the city’s most iconic landmark, The Space Needle, where the agents enjoyed spectacular aerial views of the city and beyond. In between activities, the group relaxed in their luxury accommodation provided by Thompson Hotel Seattle and The Westin Seattle.A day trip to Mount Rainier National Park, where the group went snowshoeing, and Woodinville Wine Country, which is home to 100 plus wineries, broadened the appeal of what Seattle can offer visitors, all within easy driving distance of the city limits.FAMIL GROUP PHOTO ABOVE:Top row L-R: Adam Barnes (TA Warringah Mal), Mark Jeffries (FCBT Adelaide St), Bridget Cringle (SF Belconnen), Jacob Walton (FC Product), Harley Wright (FC Toowong)Bottom row L-R: Libby Harvey (FC Port Lincoln), Noelle Loyzaga (FC Cherrybrook), Andrea Campbell (Visit Seattle host), Ray Cashman (FC Product) If you remember the 90s then Seattle will always be, first and foremost, the much celebrated birthplace of Grunge – and that’s an accolade enough for the city, just on its own. (hats off to you Seattle – and thank you!) But now it’s 2018 and this fabulous city has cemented a reputation for being all that and so much more, and rightly so, particularly appealing to Aussie travellers.Thanks to Visit Seattle and Delta Air Lines eight Flight Centre Travel Group agents were able to find out, first hand, just why there is such a buzz about this vibrant US destination, known as ‘The Emerald City’. agentsDelta AirlinesFamilsFlight CentreSeattlelast_img read more
