Seattle Waterfront: Half price museums in Feb.
By CARY ORDWAY
If you’re visiting Seattle, there are just certain places you cannot miss – the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Museum of Flight – and perhaps one of the best places to spend an afternoon is the Seattle Waterfront.
The atmosphere alone is worth the visit. There is the scenic panorama of Elliott Bay, the comings and goings of the Washington State Ferries, and the festive atmosphere down on the various piers where you’ll be able to take in everything from a dock-side aquarium to one of the country’s tallest Ferris wheels, with lots of shopping and seafood dining in between.
As if that wasn’t enough, still another incentive has been rolled out to entice you to come to Seattle in February 2015 – a half-price Museum Month in which you can get a free pass at your hotel that will get you half price at many local museums and attractions.
On our recent stay we stayed at the ideal location for a visit to the Seattle Waterfront – the Edgewater Hotel. This hotel has been famous for decades as the one hotel where you can actually stay ON the water. The Edgewater is built on pilings that put you quite literally out on the water, making it feel like you are staying on board a cruise ship. Look out your window and down below is water, along with the gorgeous views of the waterfront and Elliott Bay.
