Seattle Space Needle and surrounding attractions: March 2016

If you have been following the Seattle posts you will know that we have done the Chihuly Gardens, and Pikes Place Market.  In the same vicinity as Chihuly Gardens you will find the Space Needle, the Pacific Science Center, Emp Museum, a childrens museum, and a very interesting water feature.

We caught a monorail from the city center, not knowing how far it would be to walk.  It did not cost much, however, a heads up, it is within walking distance if you are not wanting to spend money on a monorail.   The trip took all of 3 minutes to get there.  It did give us a brief overview of the city as we rode through it.  Before we knew it we had arrived.

As I mentioned in the Chihuly Gardens blog, things cost money to get into and so I weighed up what I wanted to spend money on and what I did not. The Space Needle was not one of those things I really wanted to spend money on.  Besides there was a long line of people waiting to go up. However. that does not stop one from taking photo’s and that is what I did. Walk with me around the grounds of the Space Needle and surrounding areas.

I always thought things were bigger in Texas but after visiting Seattle I am not so sure. Giant seagulls.
