the Sunset Sail at 6:30 pm
We took the Sunset Sail which was great! We set sail around 6:30 pm. There were probably about 20-25 people on board. This was my first time on a sailboat which was cool... just letting the wind guide you. It was quite cool that evening & thankfully we had our hats & gloves which helped. The views were great and it was a cool, relaxing time out on the water. Definitely recommend anyone who wants to relax to go there and enjoy the relaxing mood the wind brings you. We look forward to visiting the place again someday in the future!Read full story
Breathtaking Seattle Wheels!
This experience threw me off because I thought it was going to be like any other dreary day in Seattle, going to a basic tourist attraction. But boy, was I wrong. Walking towards the Seattle wheel, I believe it was one of the hottest days in Seattle - the sun was barely setting around 7-8 pm. I wanted to get in and out! But what transpired made this one of the biggest highlights of my summer. My friend is a photographer and it was her son's first time. It was beautiful, breathtaking for multiple reasons. Seeing it through a little boy's eyes, his delight and commentary made it that much more fun. Seeing the contrast of the dark city and the vast, delicate lake views. Capturing moments on the Ferris such as when the sun was literally setting was...unbelievable. I was awe-struck with an overwhelming amount of gratitude, it felt and was a spiritual experience. It reminds me that there are glimpses of hope in the midst of hardship.Read full story
An absolute dream- The Seattle Great Wheel
The Seattle Great Wheel on a sunny day is an absolute dream. While I know this is not necessarily the norm, I am thankful that I serendipitously came here on a day with beautiful weather. My ride on the wheel provided clear views in every direction as far as my eyes could see!Read full story
the Great Wheel - Not Worth the Price???
I wasn't completely overwhelmed by the experience. Having already visited the Space Needle the day before, it was almost like going on a kiddie ride at the fair. For a family of 5, we paid $70. Adult tickets are $15 and youth tickets are $10. Per person isn't so bad if it just you and one other person, but when you've already seen all of the other sights in Seattle, this one fell short.Read full story
the Great Wheel
We have been to Seattle multiple times! We have also been on the Great Wheel a few times and have enjoyed every time. We love the views of Seattle and afterward, we stroll the peer and find a yummy food place to discuss our ride. I'm always surprised how many things my fiancé will see that I missed or vice versa! We always find something new! There is that much to see! Love Seattle & it is a Great Wheel. Definitely going to go there again! Please go! you won't regret it :)Read full story
Kid-friendly spot to spend an afternoon at. Our first time climbing and it was made so easy--- the gal at the front gave us a quick intro and we were off!. There is plenty of space on the kid walls which are located down the stair from the main climbing space.Read full story
This gym has it all!
This place has it all! Not only is it a place to go bouldering, but they have a personal gym, yoga class, bar, cafe, and 2 stories of bouldering walls with kid-friendly walls as well. I decided to come here as a one-time thing to try it out since this was my first time bouldering. They also offer student discounts too, but I forgot my student ID at home.Read full story
Get a picture-perfect view of the bay and Seattle!
Do yourself a favor and buy tickets online before arriving! There is a separate line for ticket holders and no waiting! We had tickets and hopped right on! Thankfully it was a beautiful sunny day in Seattle so we got picture-perfect views of the bay and city! Worth the $15 ticket price. It's about a 15 min experience. We went around maybe 4 times and were satisfied. The first loop to the top was a bit nerve-wracking especially when it swings back and forth. I imagine this would be a bad idea on a super windy day!! Avoid!!Read full story

Such a special park in downtown Seattle
We live in such a special place where downtown Seattle is so close to such a beautiful park. Discovery park feels like it is hundreds of miles away from any large city, yet it's minutes away.Read full story
Hike in Discovery Park, Seattle!
During our first trip to Seattle, my girlfriend's friend took us to Discovery Park for a hike and it was a sight to behold. The trails are well-kept and nicely shaded under the forest treetops. There were ferns galore lining the trails...we kept calling it "Ferngully". Lol, There are also some nice elevation changes and some streams along the way to the shores of the Pacific Ocean.Read full story
Refreshing hike not too far from the city
This hike is so refreshing and not too far from the city. Taking the bus from downtown Seattle to Discovery Park is very simple and straightforward. We took on bus all the way there in around 30-40 minutes which goes by fast when you have company.Read full story
Favorite park I've ever been to!!!
TLDR: BEST PARK, GORGEOUS VIEWS. ~2-mile trail to the beach and lighthouse. This is my favorite park that I've ever been to. You start out hiking/walking through the forest, end up in open grassy plains, go through the forest again with some beautiful views of the ocean, and then you end up on the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean, lighthouse, and the pier.Read full story
