First Trip to Seattle
The Space Needle was a fun experience and we enjoyed a drink on the rotating floor. Chi Hulu Garden and Glass was okay and one of those “been there done that”. Over all we enjoyed ourselves but the Pikes Market Tour was without a doubt the best. It helped that we had perfect weather for a late October visit.
