No trip to Seattle would be complete without visiting the ‘Needle’ but there are many other sources of adventure around the area to take in while you’re there.
Visit the Henry Art Gallery founded in 1927 as the first public art museum in Washington and take in Andy Warhol Drawings films and lectures, and an extensive photography collection or check out the textile and costume collections. You’ll find almost every type of art that you can imagine in this extensive museum. For those who are seeking something a little less worldly, you can head over to the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame and take advantage of the Guitar Gallery, the Northwest Passage Gallery or the Brave New World gallery for an adventure you’ll never forget. If you’re looking for something a little less out of this world you’ll enjoy the Pacific Science Center where you can journey back through time and visit with the dinosaurs, check out the robotic insects, hear the sounds of Puget Sound or check out kids’ works for an adventure the entire family will love.
If animals and the outdoors are more your style, you’ll love visiting the Woodland Park Zoo where you can enjoy activities and exhibits designed to delight the most jaded zoo lover – here you can learn a lot – visit with and learn about elephants, Humboldt penguins, ocelots and piranhas – check out the grounds and don’t miss the carousel that’s a 1918 vintage like no other! Whether you are visiting the tropical rain forest, the temperate forest or exploring the African savanna you’ll find animals everywhere! If the weather simply isn’t suitable for outdoor exploration, head over to the Seattle Aquarium and check out the Pacific Coral Reef or check out some of the oddities that live in our waters such as the pinecone fish or the potbelly seahorse. You can’t miss the underwater dome, - a 360 degree view of a 400,000 gallon tank filled with salmon, sharks, rockfish and sturgeon – designed to give you the best look you’ll ever hope to get of some of these great sea creatures.
When it’s time to wind down for the day most everyone will appreciate the opportunity to visit Pyramid Brew House with a great selection of draft beers, and a full menu guaranteed to satisfy the heartiest of appetites. If you’re searching for something a little more upscale you should consider donning your finest apparel and heading over to Crush where you’ll find an unusual menu including Octopus and goat, a selection of fine wines and exquisite deserts most prepared from locally obtained ingredients.
While you’re looking for Seattle’s night life check out The Last Supper Club – four bars and many private rooms may be found and their resident DJ’s are there to provide you with all levels of entertainment.
