Pike Place Market
Some days you want to buy paintings, fresh flowers, fish, and pajamas and you want it all from the same place. Pike Place should be the first stop on every Seattle itinerary. One of America’s oldest Farmer’s markets, Pike Place started with a few stalls in 1907 and has since grown to become a Seattle landmark. Swarming with shoppers, the bustling market is home to countless galleries, shops and cafes. No trip to Seattle is complete without experiencing Pike Place. San Francisco, California does not have a venue like this!

Through the exhibition’s eight interior galleries, lush outdoor garden and centerpiece Glasshouse visitors will experience a comprehensive look at Chihuly's most significant series of work. With both day and night experiences, and full-service dining in the adjoining Collections Café, this long-term exhibition offers a unique experience rain or shine.
No major city in America is as immersed in natural beauty as Seattle. Seattle, Washington is blessed with breathtaking views of the Cascade Mountain Range on one side and the Puget Sound on the other. Continental United States’ fourth tallest mountain and an active volcano, Mount Rainier, is just a couple of hours from Seattle. There aren’t many cities that boast of a view of an active volcano from downtown!There are several beautiful hikes, lakes and waterfalls close to Seattle. One of the most popular things to do in Seattle is to take day trips to the Goat Lake or Hidden Lake that are attractive getaways from Seattle’s urban setting.

For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill. A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.
It is about 45 minutes boat ride to Blaker Island. It is nice to see Seattle bay front view from boat. Once you get off boat you will have chance to see wild raccoon hunting his food near the deck. If you attending the show, you will be greeted with cup of steamed clam. It is very tasty. The buffet at Tillicum Village is tasty also. It is interesting to see how Indian "grill" salmon. The show is OK but it is nice to learn how Indian appreciate the nature. If you have time, it is nice to walk on the trail.
