Travel // Exploration Guide to Seattle

I am so excited to share pictures and an in-depth review of Seattle Washington.  Reuben and I went to Seattle for a conference he was presenting at in March.  It was so excited he invited me to come as I have never been before.  I was nervous about the rain and cold weather but that didn't stop us from exploring and enjoying the sights.  

Our first stop was Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle.  Its beautiful and full of so much life and color.  I fell in love the second I walked down the cobble stone hill.  You walk up to fish being thorn about and hundreds and hundreds of fresh flowers for $5 or $10 bucks for a full bouquet.  

Locals come and shop for fresh produce and fish, while tourist love to try the bakery and local beer on the water.  Its a place you can get it all.  As you can see from the photos we looked at it all as well.  In my next guide I will tell you all about the food.  Don't worry. 

Then we visited the Columbia Tower- Sky View Observatory.  Everyone told us it was a much better view and man were they right.  Plus there was so much to read about in there.  It was raining a bit while we were up on the top floor so it was nice to rest and keep warm. 

The last day to explore we decided to get tickets to see the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit.  What a good decision.  It might have been my favorite thing.  It was absolutely breath takingly beautiful.  He is a very talented man, who is still creating beautiful works of art now.  The weather was great and the sun was shining on the greenroom, as you can see from the pictures above.  Then as soon as we walked out the skis opened and they poured on us.   But I guess thats Seattle weather for you.

When buying tickets online always purchase the student ticket.  Its less money and they never check but if they do just say you forgot it in your other wallet.  You can be a student at any age.
