    Hi. Thank you for joining us on today's tour Seattle Art: It’s a Big Deal brought to you by ListenUp Audio. I’m Claire, and I will be your guide.

    Just a few things about the tour before we get started: The tour lasts about an hour and twenty minutes (depending on how much time you spend at and between each location). But don't worry, if you feel like taking a breather or stopping at any of our hidden attractions you can pause the tour at any time by touching the red headphone icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. This tour is GPS triggered, meaning I will be navigating from site to site, and my voice will begin playing as you approach each target location. The audio will play from start to finish and not repeat, but you can always replay the audio manually. To do so, simply go to the map, select a location, scroll down and press PLAY AUDIO. It’s as easy as that. If for some reason a site is closed or blocked just go around and the tour will pick up at the next location. Oh, and this is important: PLEASE make sure that you are aware of your surroundings at all times and obey all traffic signals.

    Welcome to the Emerald City, where we love our coffee and our Seahawks football team, the only place where drinking Starbucks and ordering from Amazon is considered buying local!

    We’re starting our walking tour here in the shadow of Seattle’s most recognizable landmark, the supersized 605-foot Space Needle. From here, we are going to wander toward the Puget Sound and hit some of Seattle’s most famous downtown attractions, including Olympic Sculpture Park, the waterfront, Pike Market and the Seattle Art Museum, all with one extra special twist. The Space Needle is not the only supersized thing around here. No, Seattleites have a taste for big things, and we’re going to have a look at a few of the biggest, so, bring your camera for some Seattle-sized photo ops.

    Let’s get right to it. You should be standing at 325 5th Avenue, or the corner of 5th and Thomas before the EMP Museum
