The little kid in me really enjoyed the thrilling ride on the Seattle Great Wheel. You can find it at Pier 57 on Elliott Bay in Seattle, Washington. It takes you 175 feet up in the air for $13 (+ tax) and $8.50 (+ tax) for kids 4-11 years old. The rides take anywhere from 12 to 20 minutes long. They have a photo package where your backdrop is the Great Seattle Wheel, but you’ll probably enjoy taking your own photos better. The view from the top is breathtaking and calming all at once.
This is just one of the countless things you can do in this ultra hip, coastal sea port city. I love Seattle. I wish I could move there!
I look at travel as the best therapy for when the life in my home city gets a little too overwhelming. The opportunities for me to travel are few and far between due to the busyness of the daily grind. But when the chance does come up, I grab it with gusto!
