I was in Seattle about a week ago. Here’s the post. I just went for the day so I didn’t get to see much. But I did see the Space Needle, Pikes Place Market, and the waterfall garden. When I got to Seattle I took the Light Link Rail from the airport to Downtown Seattle. It cost 2.50 for a round trip ticket.
I’ll have to say the security on the train was pretty lax nobody even checked. I got off a few blocks from Pikes Place Market.
I stayed there for a bit didn’t stay very long but it seemed pretty cool. I walked from there to the Space Needle and it was kind of a hike, but it wasn’t too bad.
Around the bottom of the Space Needle there was all kind of cool sculptures and other stuff.
I waited in line for about 20 minutes to pay $20 to get a ticket. Then I had about another 20 minute wait to get on an elevator. Once I was at the top the view was pretty good.
There wasn’t a whole lot to look at up there that you couldn’t see from the ground. But I guess it was worth it to say I’ve been to the top. I went back down and got some lunch at Subway of all places. Then walked back to Pikes Place and probably stayed there for another hour or so. I read somewhere online that the waterfall garden was something worth checking out so I started the 30 minute walk to the “garden”. Once I got there it was the biggest bust! It was like a alley way with like 4 miniature waterfalls. In all fairness it was closed and I couldn’t actually go in but it didn’t seem like I actually needed to. And then I came back.
Here are some more pictures of the trip
