      Pro 2014
      Fran V. recommended Seattle Underground Tour
      Taking The Underground tour gave me a different perspective of Seattle and helped me to learn more about the history of the city.

    • Kerry Park211 W Highland Dr ,Seattle, Washington 98119, United States
      Pro 2014
      Fran V. recommended Kerry Park
      If you visit Kerry Park, you see an amazing view of the Seattle skyline. The park is small and nicely tucked away in a nice neighborhood in the hills.

    • Chihuly Garden and Glass305 Harrison Street, Seattle, WA
      Seema Shah recommended Chihuly Garden and Glass
      I really loved the Chihuly indoor/outdoor exhibit. It's right next to the space needle, and in my opinion, much more interesting!

    • Seattle Public Library (Central location)1000 Fourth Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104-1109
      Pro 2014
      Jon L. recommended Seattle Public Library (Central location)
      If you want to visit a library in Seattle, it should be Seattle Public Library's downtown Seattle location. This is the flagship and crowning jewel of the library system. It is a 11 story building ... read more
      made of glass and steel. The buildings looks nothing like any of the buildings it neighbors. It is a dome like structure that seems like the design came from outer space. The interior of the library is futuristic and artful. There is a visual art display as you head up the escalator. And the 4th floor is quite interesting for its dark mood lighting. The futuristic architecture of this library is unorthodox for sure, but this library is truly a great one on the merits of its collection which is in my opinion the best in Seattle. This library succeeds in combining art and substance well together.

    • Olympic Sculpture Park2901 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA, United States
      Pro 2014
      Jon L. recommended Olympic Sculpture Park
      If you think of it as a museum, then you will be sorely disappointed. But as a park near the waterfront, this place is great. It is nice to come here when it is warm and sunny. But even better when it ... read more
      is a little cloudy and cooler (or windy). 70 degrees and a few clouds watching the action on Elliott Bay is the perfect leisure activity on a summer day. The park is located near the Space Needle and Seattle Center, so if you are visiting those attractions, a walk down the street to Olympic Sculpture Park is well worth it.

      You must try the Caribbean Roast sandwich here. Note that the lines can be long since the place is small.

    • Snoqualmie Falls6501 Railroad Avenue Southeast, Snoqualmie, WA 98024
      Pro 2014
      Jon L. recommended Snoqualmie Falls
      One of the few major attractions on the Eastside. This waterfall is majestic. It is not as large as Multnomah Falls in Portland, but is still impressive nevertheless. About a 30-45 minute (depending ... read more
      on traffic) drive east of Seattle on I-90. There is plentiful parking, though it fills up on the weekends. The hiking trail to the falls and observation platform is scheduled to reopen in mid-September. Currently, two upper observation platforms are open to view the falls.

    • Gas Works Park2101 North Northlake Way, Seattle, WA 98103
      Pro 2014
      Jon L. recommended Gas Works Park
      Gas Works Park is my favorite Seattle picture taking spot. The park is wonderfully hilly with the largest one being a great viewpoint. It has great views of Lake Union, Space Needle and the Seattle ... read more
      skyline. This park is interesting in that it was formerly a gasification plant and some of the machinery is left over as a result. This is a great spot for a picnic or sunbathing as well. Location is close to the Fremont neighborhood which is an attraction in itself.

      Fremont is a very awesome neighborhood with good eats, great shops, and the Fremont Troll! You'll really enjoy the neighborhood and it's not too far from downtown so you can get to this area easily by ... read more

      When you are down at Pike Place make sure to go in Post alley...The alley is where all the little hidden food places and shops are at in pike place market. If you love pizza then you will love the Alibi Room :-)
