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.
Spotting a double-decker bus outside of London is a rare treat. It's a treat Double Decker PDX founders Brooks Thompson and Kent Metcalf wanted to share with their fellow Rose City residents, which is why they brought a cherry red double-decker bus over from London. Rather than keep it on stationary display, they renovated it and transformed it into a venue on wheels complete with refrigerators, an oak bar, and a stereo system. Now, the double-decker bus transports revelers on pub crawls, to weddings, or to tastings at local wineries, in addition to other special events.
Paul and Maggy Henry met in the adventure travel business - the California company where he worked sent hikers to the Peru-based company where she worked. As owners of Vespa Portland since 2012, the duo now helps clients with shorter, everyday journeys. Alongside motorcycles from Ural, Paul and Maggy stock their spacious showroom with scooters from brand-name manufacturers such as Vespa, Piaggio, Genuine, and Sym. To supplement those rides, the pair also supplies accessories such as helmets, goggles, baskets, and rain suits.
In addition to selling new scooters, Paul and Maggy's team maintains rides that have navigated their fair share of streets. Headed by lead mechanic Pedro Galvan - a graduate of Phoenix's prestigious Motorcycle Mechanics Institute - a crew of factory-trained technicians keeps scooters in top shapes with original equipment manufacturer parts. The team also stores motorcycles and scooters in its warehouse over the winter, where they ready rides for spring by charging batteries and making sure bikes take their allergy medication.

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.
