The last two times we have been home my husband and I have taken a day to hang out in downtown Seattle. This time we played tourist and had a grand time. We thought of things we had never done and walked from one end of the city (and back).
(Pictures taken by yours truly, except where otherwise noted.)
Our adventures included:
The Space Needle (We had both eaten in the restaurant, but not gone up to the observation deck just for the view.)
Admiring the art at Chihuly Garden and Glass
Wandering through the Olympic Sculpture Park (part of Seattle Art Museum)
Eating in the Trolley at the The Old Spaghetti Factory
Wandering the Pike Place Market (including the Gum Wall, which neither of us had ever seen).
Exploring the Seattle Central Library

Mariner's game in King's Court (The Bo-Sox fans were crying as we won 11-4.)
Now that this is a tradition I need to start the list for our next outing.
What touristy things do you like to do in your own city?
