  • Wing Luke Asian Museum
    The 90-minute stroll through Seattle’s micro-China starts at the Chinatown-International District museum.

As you learn the history and significance of historical landmarks, the diverse languages of the city's Asian community comingle melodiously in the air, and the spirit of a 7,000-year-old culture flits through the incomparable Seattle neighborhood like a flutterbug in a bag of cotton balls.

  • Pike Street Press
    Five Things to Know About Pike Street Press Pike Street Press wears multiple hats: it's a letterpress design studio, a custom-print shop, and an art gallery rolled into one small, environmentally conscious store. Read on to learn more about this throwback business. All the work is produced on antique printing presses. The shop's roster of used equipment includes a 1960s Heidelberg Letterpress, which shoulders the brunt of the load. Proprietor Sean Brown learned to letterpress in Utah’s southern mountains. More specifically, he learned the craft while working on a cattle ranch there. Modern processes are still prevalent. Old-fashioned presses might be the stars here, but pre-press graphics are generated on computers in high resolution. Mother Nature gives it a thumbs up. That's because the shop doesn’t throw away any surplus supplies, donating them to local art schools instead. Plus, its employees all walk or bike to work instead of driving coal-powered monster trucks. You can shop for artwork, too. Aside from printing its own pieces of art, Pike Street Press also showcases for-sale masterpieces from local artists.
