The Space Needle is enjoying it's 50th Birthday, and on the Seattle Center grounds where it lives are two new exhibits that make spending the day there an appealing option.
The Dale Chihuly permanent glass exhibition is adjacent to the Space Needle; the colors and shapes are amazing. And just down the walkway at the Science Center Pavilion is the King Tut exhibit. Seattle is its last stop in the United States. Some may have seen it here in the '70s, but this time around there are twice as many artifacts in the show.
From the Space Needle you can walk to the waterfront or take the Monorail to downtown, then walk to Pier 57, then through Pike Place Market to where Seattle's newest attraction, the Seattle Great Wheel, resides, It just opened in June and adds fun interest to the city skyline.
