Seattle: The Game is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. Players may explore one or all of the game's three zones, sampling fresh fruit at stalls in Pike Place Market, admiring monuments in historic Pioneer Square, or frowning at all of the Mark Rothko paintings at the Seattle Art Museum. Clues point the way to culinary delights such as Seattle's first bar and flagship Starbucks, and indulge eyes and ears in a chamber filled with porcelain and a record shop frequented by Santana and Eric Clapton. At least one player on the team will need a US cell phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most zones take two–three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aqua-centric scrapbooks. From the time of activation, Venti Packages give players a year to chase through all three tours.
The flagship of Imperial Limousines’ fleet is not a party bus or a stretch SUV—it’s a pair of vintage Bentleys. One is a black-and-silver 1957 Bentley S1, and the other is a tudor-gray-and-silver 1961 Bentley S2. Both vehicles have gray leather upholstery that is accented by handcrafted wood, and both look good carrying a bride and groom. The chauffeurs also have Lincoln Town Cars and stretch limos at their disposal for airport transfers, wine tours, and last-minute lifts after your car drives off to join the circus.
Located a short shuttle ride from Portland International Airport, Thrifty Airport Parking offers a secure sanctuary to stow vehicles while owners are away. Like the lid of Pandora’s jar of peanut butter, Thrifty Airport Parking is always open, watching over cars with 24-hour surveillance, 365 days a year. Attendants stand at the ready to unload baggage and put it on the complimentary shuttle, which transports guests to and from the airport. Car owners can also submit their steeds to lube, oil, and filter services or full detailing in preparation for the return journey home.

Sometimes, a simple car ride just isn’t enough. Sometimes, you’re faced with an event so momentous, a party so raucous, or a rendezvous so romantic that a special conveyance is required. On these days, Fiesta Limousine’s fleet of vehicles appears on the horizon, an army of party buses and limousines that escort passengers on unforgettable trips throughout the region. Decked with amenities ranging from quality sound systems and custom bars to neon décor and original Gobots voices, each vehicle is piloted by a chauffeur backed by thorough screening and training. In addition to proms, weddings, and airport pickups, Fiesta’s drivers also lead passengers on wine tours through northwestern vineyards.
