Allons-y ! A Journey through Seattle

Seattle is "the city of goodwill" deep in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

It's the largest city in Washington.

When visiting Seattle, make sure to check out these places:

Gloomy day in Seattle.

The Museum of Flight is the largest air and space museum in the world with over 175 aircraft on display. It welcomes over 500,000 visitors annually and continues to expand to this day. This year the Museum celebrated Boeing Airplane Company’s centennial anniversary by giving them their own exhibit in the museum.

Safeco Field, Home of the Seattle Mariners.

Then we have Safeco Field, a Major League Baseball ballpark home to the Seattle Mariners since 1999. Ever since it opened, it’s been the site of historical records like Ichiro Suzuki’s hits record for a season in 2004 and all-around great players like Ken Griffey, Jr. It is a modern ballpark with a retractable roof and considered one of the premier facilities in the MLB.

You are able to catch a view of Seattle’s skyline from the stadium.
Loook ! It's So Tall !

Next we have the 605-foot Space Needle, which is considered an icon in the city of Seattle and a must-see in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. It opened in 1962 for that year’s World’s Fair and got the name “The 400 Day Wonder” for the amount of time it took to finish construction. It hosts more than one million visitors annually, making it one of the best tourist attractions in the West Coast. For the people in Seattle, it’s a part of their daily lives as it is seen everyday in the city’s skyline.

Pike Place Market after a rainy day

Pike Place Market is a public market community located within the heart of Downtown Seattle which opened in August 17, 1907. It is one of the oldest public market operated in the United States. Often referred to as the “heart and soul” of Seattle. It is Washington’s most frequent destination, attracting 10 million visitors a year.

Filled with Vibrant colors everywhere. Pike Place Market has a few attractions it is known for, like the Pike Place Fish Market, the famous Gum Wall and the original Starbucks.

The Pike Place Fish Market is my personal favorite. A place with so much life and always entertaining visitors. Wanna see the “fish guys” in action? Place an order to see the seafood get tossed in action or simply wait until somebody else puts in their order. TOTALLY WORTH IT !

An attraction with one of the longest lines in Pike Place Market is Starbucks which opened in 1971. This is where it all began for the global coffee corporation and much of the original interior from the coffee shop remains untouched in this location.

Seattle's Gum Wall !

The Gum Wall is a 54-foot-long attraction which is adjacent to Market Theater. It all started when patrons were asked to leave their gum outside and people literally left the gum outside by sticking it to the wall.
