I am loving Seattle 🙂
I decided to get the Seattle City Pass for $59. It includes admission to 6 attractions around the city. I knew I wanted to do 4 of them so I thought it would be good value to get even if I miss one or two sites.
I started with the Space Needle at Seattle Center. It was a last minute decision as when I left the hostel and saw the blue skies I thought I better make the most of it and take in the views. I took the monorail from Downtown to Seattle Center, which was great fun.
I love the location of Seattle. Seeing the mountains and sea from one location is fantastic. It reminds m of Vancouver, but it is different.
As I was at the Seattle Center I decided to take in the Experience Music Project. I’m not a great fan of music, but the people I’ve spoken to said it was a use see. It was really interesting and great that the city has taken so much pride in its music history and current scene. My favourite bit was the guitar statue 🙂
I then headed back to Downtown and after lunch headed to the Aquarium. I love aquariums and they had just welcomed the birth of a baby sea otter 🙂
Overall a very touristy day but I loved it. Sometimes it is just nice to do the extremely tourist orientated things first then you can get to know the city bit by bit 🙂
