Gorgeous Glass

I don’t love museums and I’m not much of an “art” person, but Chihuly Garden and Glass is AMAZING! It was on my checklist of places to visit before I move (so long Seattle, viva Las Vegas!), so my roommate, Alie, and I set out for a little adventure to Seattle Center with our cameras in hand. Dale Chihuly is a local artist, but has created pieces all over the world. This collection of his work is absolutely beautiful. My favorite feature is the glasshouse that you can see the Space Needle through.  The outdoor glass garden is stunning, too! There is also a cafe and a bookstore full of souvenirs. Here are some of the pictures I took. Professional photographers are also there to take your picture, which you can email to yourself for free!

The Sun and the Space Needle. Even though I see the Space Needle almost every day, I still think it is so cool.

Chihuly Garden and Glass is a must-see in Seattle! It should definitely be ranked up there with Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and the Seattle Great Wheel as top tourist attractions. Although locals should definitely check it out, too!
