We left Tampa around 7:30 had a layover in Atlanta and on to Seattle. Five hours in a plane is about my max. Got into Seattle at 12:30 local time. Got our checked baggage and off to the light rail. $2.75 one way. It's a nice walk to the train. Well worth it. The trains are clean and have a nice smooth ride. it was about a 45 minute ride to the Westlake station in downtown Seattle. We took a taxi to our hotel with tip was $8.00.
We checked in at our hotel, cleaned up and changed clothes and it was off to the Space Needle. Only a couple of blocks from our hotel. We used our CityPass and it gave us two addmissions per person. One for a day view and one for a night view. You walk in at the front entrance and up a slight incline to were you get your photo taken then it's ticket time and up the elevator to the top.
After visiting the Space Needle we headed up to Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill for another great view of the city and the Space Needle. Beautiful views of Mount Rainier too. Then we headed back downtown to the Columbia Tower the corner of Columbia Street and 5th. Ave. $6.00 dollars gets you up to the 73rd floor to the observation deck for more great views of the city. Well worth the time. Seattle is so beautiful!!
We walked back 5th Ave. to the hotel stopping at H&M along the way to check out some clothes. Great store with some good prices.
For dinner we at Zeeks Pizza. Delicious!!!!
