I was in this location for the O Town Experience. It was a beautiful day with the best weather I could have asked for. This was specifically set up for the Oprah Event but the area was still so beautiful to just walk around in. The attractions, sites and atmosphere was one I truly enjoyed.

Take the monorail from Westlake Center to Seattle Center. Remember to bring cash, as they don't take credit. The Space Needle, Chihuly museum, EMP, Armory and more at Seattle Center.

You can get here from the monorail and land at the Space Needle. I came here around Christmastime and the lights on the trees were so beautiful.

Seattle Center is very typical public space when you visit a city with a metropopulation greater than 500,000. It was clean, it had fountains, and it had park benches. The Space Needle in form is unique, but the observation deck is a dime a dozen: you can visit the tallest structure anywhere, and I am sure it has an observation... More

I really liked walking around Seattle Center, it was during the summer, so it was sunny and lots of people out. We went to the Pike place market, which was fun to walk through, the original Starbucks, where you can buy cool coffee related things and have a cup of coffee to go and walk around the area. I really... More

This is where it all happens, or at least where you can get to where it all happens. The famous Chihuly glass museum is here, the Space Needle, the Music Experience and more area all right in this one jam-packed area. The monorail starts and ends here and it's a fun and quick way to get downtown. We always stay... More

While visiting Seattle, take the time to visit and walk around the Seattle Center. From downtown Seattle, take one route via the monorail to get there! On a sunny, dry day it is fun to enjoy the fountains, checking out the view of the Space Needle from the ground up (impressive), numerous eateries, or other activities that can take place... More

Seattle Center covers multiple blocks and has everything! It is the "center" of everything that makes Seattle a cosmopolitan city. Here is what you can do at the "center". Go to the Armory for food or to catch the monorail or to visit the Childrens Theater or enjoy live holiday entertainment. Go the Pacific Northwest Ballet, the Pacific Science Center,... More

Not far from downtown Seattle (walk or catch the monorail from the Westlake centre). You can just relax in the park near the fountain, eat at The Armoury (food court with lots of different options), go to the Science Centre, visit several theatres, museums and Key Arena. Or go up the Space Needle for great views across Seattle (and Mt... More
