My second (and last) day in Seattle began with a morning spent in the Pioneer Square/International District area and followed by an afternoon at the Seattle Center.
The Seattle Center is seventy-four acres and was originally built for the 1962 World Fair. It currently is comprised of the Museum of Pop Culture, the Memorial Stadium, Chihuly Glass and Gardens, the Space Needle, and the Key Arena. I spent the majority of my time at the Museum of Pop Culture to check out the Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and Star Trek exhibits (amongst many others) and then made my way over to the Space Needle as the sun was setting.
To anyone who is visiting Seattle in the near future, I highly recommend that you check out this area as there is honestly just so much to do.
To say that my trip up to the Northwest was much needed is an understatement. I am honestly so glad I was able to be up there for close to a week and not only explore Seattle but Portland and Eugene, aka my old stomping grounds, as well.
My first stop was Seattle and almost immediately after arriving I headed to Pike Place Market to check out the area and get some good fish n chips. I knew that this was a place I just had to go to and am glad it was my first place to explore, with being able to see the fishermen throw the fish, scope out all the vendors, and glance at (not touch) the infamous Gum Wall.
I also loved how friendly everyone was! While eating my fish n chips, the server even had me try some fruit from the vendor across the way and it was SOO good!
