Some places worth checking out:
|Tea ceremony dates at Japanese Garden in Arboretum.|
Washington State Arboretum
We caught a bus (#43) downtown Seattle from Pine Street to Montlake and walked along some pathways in the Arboretum. A little glum this time of year, but it was a nice day to explore. They have a Japanese Garden that opens in March that has tea ceremonies and other happenings going on there. I want to go back in the spring for Cherry Blossom season. There are also some other great trails along Lake Washington where you can picnic, take in the scenery, or walk over to MOHI (Museum of History and Industry).
Teatro Zinzanni Dinner Theatre
This was a wonderful evening of entertainment near Seattle Center. I bought General Admission seating which weren't cheap (over $100/pp), but I think well worth it. We had an awesome view of all the entertainment (singing, dancing, acting, acrobatics, gymnastics, music, etc) and a 5 course meal. The venue changes every few months and runs year round.
Seattle Great Wheel
Seattle's newest attraction since we've been gone. Although it doesn't compare to the huge Cosmo Clock Ferris Wheel in Yokohama, it was still nice to do on a sunny day. For $13pp we saw some great views of downtown, and of the water.. Not to mention we went around about 4 times which is usually unheard of with such attractions!
