Travel review: Seattle Center

Today, I’m continuing my reviews from Seattle as I continue my series from my trip to the USA last year with ‘future mom’ and dad
Seattle Center is the site of the 1962 World Fair and remains a tourist destination in the northern part of downtown Seattle. It’s a nice stroll or you can take the Monorail from Westlake Centre

The tallest attraction and flagbearer for Seattle Centre is the Space Needle, which still towers over the sight and it’s worth a trip to the top for a great view of the surrounding Puget Sound, islands and mountains

The rest of the 74 acre site hosts a mixture of museums, shops, sports arena and gardens. Dad and I have enjoyed visits to the Pacific Science Centre and the EMP museum though we miss the Sci fi museum, which has shut. The famous Chihuly glass company have also opened a garden and museum


It’s only a short ride but we rode the world’s first monorail to Westlake Centre in the downtown area
