"Gold!" It was a cry that changed the American West forever, and it was heard all over Seattle in the summer of 1897, when the first miners returned from northwestern Canada with tales of riches. More than 100,000 prospectors headed north in the following years, and Seattle was changed forever. Find out just how the city boomed from dark depression to golden prosperity on this 75-minute walking tour of Pioneer Square, where your knowledgeable and entertaining guide will point out the saloons, dance halls, gambling parlors, movie houses and brothels that tempted many a miner. If you're taking off soon on an Alaskan cruise and want some info for the way up -- or you're just a history buff who loves stories about prospectors, gamblers and con artists -- this tour will give you the mother lode.
