Sightseeing in Seattle

I recently visited the sleepless city and was enamored by the rich culture, sights, and activities. There is so much to do, see and experience that I was surprised by how much we managed to cram in one day.

The day started off with a visit to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit at the Seattle Center. An incredible display of blown glass by famous artist Dale Chihuly was displayed throughout the Exhibition Hall and outside into the garden, creating the perfect blend of organic elements and artisan brilliance.

Next stop Seattle's most famous attraction, the Space Needle! It was a beautiful day, which allowed for an incredible view of the entire city from the Space Needle's observation deck!
It just wouldn't be a day in the city without a visit to Seattle's famous Pike's Place Fish Market to indulge in some of Seattle's finest seafood, baked goods, fresh flowers, and hand-crafted goods from local artisans!

We ended our day in Seattle by riding a 'Duck' - an amphibious landing craft developed by the United States Army during World War II. Ride the Ducks of Seattle is a fun way to tour the city and learn the history

Warm sunny weather fills Lake Union with lots of water traffic; sail boats, kayaks, yachts, even hot tub boats! The sun was just starting to set as the tour came to a close lighting up the Seattle skyline, a picture perfect ending to a wonderful day spent in one of the Northwest's most amazing cities! 

Until Next Time,
