Plan to extend your stay through Friday for a extra-special treat: a Dinner Cruise on the Spirit of Seattle. Learn more about this event and other Seattle tourist highlights.


Welcome to Seattle! If you haven't been here before - you are going to love it! Known as the "Emerald City", Seattle sits with a gorgeous backdrop of the of the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, beautiful ocean views and amazing tourist opportunities. You may have heard that it's always raining in Seattle. I'll fill you in on a little secret. That's just what the locals tell tourists in order to discourage migration into the region.

The meeting will be held at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel, kicking off on Wednesday September 30 at 2:00 p.m. Our agenda focus is double-fold this year: Transportation Issues and the 2016 International Year of Pulses. We have a great course selected for our USPLTA Golf Tournament on Friday afternoon - the Washington National Golf Course. And even if you don't golf, there are plenty of other attractions to explore on Friday afternoon - check out the suggestions on the "Seattle & Dinner Cruise" page. You're invited to extend your stay through Friday night for a special treat - a dinner cruise aboard the Spirit of Seattle, one of Seattle’s premier vessels!

And if you have the opportunity to stay for the weekend - I highly encourage you to take full advantage to explore all that Seattle has to offer! From aviation to music to sports, Seattle provides ample opportunities to fill your wants and needs. The Space Needle is a must-see, and while you're in the area check out the EMP museum next door! I also recommend taking advantage of the incredible local restaurant scene. The area offers some of the best seafood in the world. Don't forget about the coffee… it's always "pouring" in Seattle! We are very excited Seattle is home to our event, and I look forward to meeting each of you there!
