Seattle origins: BILL SPEIDEL'S UNDERGROUND TOUR

  • April 12, 2008 · 2:00 PM

We'll meet at 1:30 at the underground cafe. That'll give us enough time for refreshments before embarkment. I'll be there earlier, around 1 to grab lunch and watch out for early birds - come down for a pint with me! We'll take the 2pm tour! Click here to purchase your ticket in advance. We are taking the 2pm tour! make sure you choose the correct time! :) BILL SPEIDEL'S UNDERGROUND TOUR is a leisurely, guided walking tour beneath Seattle?s sidewalks and streets.

While you roam the subterranean passages that once were the main roadways and first-floor storefronts of old downtown Seattle, Tour Guides regale you with humorous stories our pioneers didn?t want you to hear. It?s history with a twist!

The tour begins with a seated introduction inside Doc Maynard's Public House, a restored 1890s saloon. Then you walk outside through historic Pioneer Square to three different sections of Underground?about three blocks in all. The view from down under Be prepared for the underground landscape to be moderately rugged: you?ll encounter six flights of stairs, uneven terrain and spotty lighting. Dress for the weather and leave your spike heel shoes at home!

The tour ends at Rogue's Gallery, where you?ll find portraits of Seattle's colorful characters and other displays depicting Seattle's past. Here you?ll have a chance to purchase work by local artisans and mementos of your visit.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
