This excellent, laminated map shows a pedestrian-oriented view of city features and attractions. I have used Streetwise maps for years in cities around the world and this one extensively in Seattle. These maps have been the best souvenir and most enduring guide to the places I've visited. If you travel to Seattle, get this map.
