10 (more) photos to inspire you to visit Seattle
After a long delay, it’s time for another 5 Photos Friday this week! I know it’s been a while, but I’ve been out collecting lots of new content for these posts that happen on random Fridays. I started off the first 5 photos Friday with a 10 photo post featuring Seattle, and I’ve since added a few favorites to the list! So, here to celebrate my beautiful city are 10 more photos to inspire you to visit Seattle.
And don’t forget to check out my Instagram feed and Facebook Page with plenty of Seattle shots and more from around the world!
A rainbow over Gasworks park proves that Seattle has rain, but it also has sun!
These huge arches at the Pacific Science Center show off some off Seattle’s unique architecture.
We’ve got spirit despite a little drizzle. This is the grand finale from the Christmas Ship Festival’s annual boat parade at Gasworks Park.
We’ve got plenty of beaches offering wildlife viewing and activities. Here at Discovery Park’s beach, low tide extends way out into the Bay.
It’s a waterfront city, and a beautiful one at that! This is from the top of the Smith Tower.
We’ve got impressively high viewpoints! Everyone to visit Seattke knows about the Space Needle, but did you know that the Columbia Tower is much higher? Go on a foggy day for this view.
Seattle is made up of unique, urban neighborhoods. Fremont is the funkiest, considered as the “Center of the Universe” by Seattleites! Make sure to stop by Fremont the next time you visit Seattle.
I already mentioned beaches, but it’s important to know that the city is surrounded by water, from lakes to the Puget Sound. Because of our proximity to water, water sports abound here.
Seattle has a very dramatic skyline. This is one of it’s most famous views, from Kerry Park.
On a clear day, you can see mountains in any direction from the city. This proximity to the mountains has earned Seattle some serious bragging rights amongst outdoor lovers. Certainly one of the top reasons to visit Seattle!
