1. It’s hard to take Seattle for granted when you see it from 520 feet on the Space Needle Observation Deck.  Unfortunately the long line and short visit prohibited me from seeing it.

  2. The Seattle Great Wheel was built in less than a year, but its story goes back much further than that. Seattle businessman Hal Griffith had envisioned a Ferris wheel in the city for nearly 30 years, but it wasn’t until he realized he could build one on his own pier that his dream became a reality.

    The Seattle Great Wheel opened to the public on June 29, 2012. Since then, it has become an icon of the city and a destination for tourists and locals alike.

  3. Public Market Center is an iconic collection of flower, fish, and other markets open in downtown Seattle.

  4. The Pike Place Fish Market is an electric buzz of activity.

  5. Hard Rock Café, Seattle, WA.

  6. This young boy was all eyes as the fish flew through the air.

  7. This young man was beyond thrilled to hoist up a trophy fish at the world famous Pike Place Fish Market.

  8. Plummeting 620 feet, Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States and receives nearly 2 million visitors each year!

  9. The Hood River near the Columbia River Gorge is the nation’s largest pear-growing region.
