Things To See In Seattle
My goal here, is to give you a mental image along with many photos of our beautiful city. You’ll find it to be a great place to visit.
The famous Pike Place Market (or as visitors call it: Farmer’s Market) that all the locals know of and have visited many times, will be one of those things to see. Are you aware that there are three levels that can be toured for free? See the guys doing the “fish toss” to each other. Taste the local “hippy tea” or better known as Seattle spice tea. Don’t forget to take the “Underground Seattle” tour and see how Seattle burned down and the new Seattle was built on top of it.
Travel Through The Mountains
You’ll be taken to the little mountain community of Leavenworth. It is likened to the”Swiss Alps of Washington.” See the mountain fed Wenatchee (win nat chee, like in ‘cherry’) River, mountain views, little shops, friendly people, and many events throughout the year. Oh, and don’t forget to go to the OctoberFest. But remember, it is not in the month of October, but in the last week of September. The huge variety of sausages and beer are great to sample. 🙂 Yummy!
Even been hiking? Then you’ll love the trails in the Rain Forest out on the peninsula. Like more of an adventure? Then you will be invited to hike the trails up Mount Rainier. (pronounced as Ray Near) Go to Paradise Resort on Rainier and you’ll see the entire mountain and it’s surrounding areas on a scale model within the Paradise Lodge. You’ll love it. It will give you a clear perspective of all the surrounding areas. Note also the volcano lava flow that came from the mountain. Then locate your place where you are staying. Are you in the flow? The very best month to go up and hike the trails is in the month of August. Wild flowers, fresh air, brisk but warm breezes. I know you’ll love it!
Seattle Center…Home of The Space Needle
You’ll be able to visit the Seattle Center. Tour the Space Needle and it’s revolving restaurant. This is the very place where Elvis Presley made the movie : “At the World’s Fair.” Did you know that the Seattle Space Needle was originally scheduled for demolition when the World’s Fair had ended?
Go to Greenlake and have a picnic. Tour the U-District or as tourists call it, the University of Washington District. Don’t forget to check out Skagit (pronounced as : ska jet) Valley and see the tulip fields.
Here in the Seattle area you’ll see where Amazon, Microsoft, UPS, The Boeing company, and many more large companies had their early start. Seattle is one of those places where the entrepreneur spirit is going full blast. You’ll love the atmosphere. But what is atmosphere without a fresh cup of Starbuck’s coffee? See the Headquarters right here in Seattle and the very first Starbuck’s store located across the brick street from the Pike Place Market. It still has the old original wooden floors!
Like BRUCE LEE movies? You’ll be able to pay him your respects by visiting his grave site located on Capitol Hill. How about TIGER WOODS? I’ll bet you did not know that he grew up in West Seattle, did you? Not only that, but when he was only 5 years old, he and his dad were featured on a local television program. I can remember his dad saying,”we call him tiger and one day he will be the best golfer in the world.” So, did his prediction come true?
