Seattle

Washington
The Fastest Growing City in the U.S.

Visitors flocking to Seattle are typically looking to explore the Space Needle, visit the first Starbucks, and peruse Pike Place Market, but there is much more to see and do in Seattle than those few highlights.

One stop that art enthusiasts rave about is Chihuly Garden and Glass. This popular exhibition showcases gorgeous glass sculptures, all by artist Dale Chihuly, through 8 different galleries onsite. Located directly next to the Space Needle at Seattle Center, it is favorable option for visitors to purchase a packaged ticket, to receive access to both attractions.

To capture the perfect photo of the entire city skyline,  consider spending some time at Kerry Park. Travelers are consistently floored by beautiful views from the park-which is also known to be one of the best locations to photograph the Space Needle from.

Another “must see” on your retreat to Seattle is the Central Public Library. This modern marvel of glass plates shaped in very unusual ways is truly a sight to see. Built in 1998, Seattle voters agreed to building this extremely ambitious infrastructure that was designed with growth in mind.
