Glass houses

Seattle is a special city, a city that I love and can not imagine living anywhere else.  There are many amazing places to explore if you love nature, art, and great culture.  We are not just hipsters, coffee lovers, or tech geeks.  There are many beautiful experiences you can have in Seattle for any type of taste.

We had family in town from Ohio and because grandma is an artist and art aficionado visiting the Chihuly Garden and Glass was on our must see list. Dale Chihuly is a pioneer in the art of glass and us Washingtonians are lucky to claim him as our own.  The Chihuly Garden and Glass is located next to the Space Needle in the Seattle Center so it was a perfect place to visit and sightsee.

It has been open since 2012 but I have not visited it before today.  It’s just one of those things that happen or don’t happen unless you have out of town guests, being a tourist in your own city.  It was very breathtaking to see the beauty of all the blown glass, unfortunately Violet was so mesmerized that she wanted to climb into the art installations and touch all the glass.  Brian and I zipped through the exhibit to save the ears of all the other guests.

For the most part we were able to enjoy and appreciate the amazing glass and the family got to spend quality time together.  If you live in Seattle and have not gone yet, I would highly recommend it.  You can really make a whole day out of it and enjoy the other wonders of the Seattle Center.
