* The only guidebook to stairway walks in Seattle
* Explore Seattle neighborhoods in a new way with these interesting walks in Seattle
* Written for people of all ages who want to get outside, exercise, and explore

Often called a “city of neighbor-hoods,” Seattle is shaped by soaring mounds like Queen Anne and Capitol Hill and by indentations such as Ravenna Ravine and Deadhorse Canyon. Weaving together the hills, bluffs, and canyons are stairs -- lots and lots of stairs. In fact, there are over 600 publicly accessible Seattle stairways within the city limits! And to explore Seattle by these stairs opens up stunning views and a whole new, intimate side of the Emerald City.

Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods is the city's first guidebook to 25 of the best neighborhood walks that feature public Seattle stairways. Each route description includes driving and public transit directions to the starting point, full-color photos, a detailed map, QR codes for saving abbreviated directions on your smart phone, tips on sections that are family-friendly, suggestions for cafes and pubs for that perfect espresso and sandwich en route, fascinating sidebars on Seattle's neighborhood history and community anecdotes, and much, much more.

Most of the walks in this book are in Seattle proper, with 2 on the Eastside. This is a cool guide book that introduced us to some other routes to explore in our metro area.

What a great little book this is! For anyone who enjoys walking around Seattle's many neighborhoods, this guide has great value. Thoroughly researched and beautifully designed, this book's maps are its treasures. The sidebars filled with historic and geographic details are a delight. I have read many guidebooks by authors who clearly have not been to the places they write about. But the Jaramillos write with the authenticity of walkers who have stepped on every portion of their described walks. Even if you are a reader and not a walker, if you are interested in Seattle, you will love this book. I recommend purchasing it instead of checking it out of the library!
