Enchant Christmas at Safeco Field in Seattle

No comments:


Enchant Christmas at Safeco Field in Seattle is an even for the entire family ! Enjoy Holiday lights, the Christmas market and fun festive activities. The holiday light event, which runs through Dec. 30, covers the entire baseball field with a spectacular light maze and an ice skating rink. As you enter the stadium for Enchant, expect a different kind of cheer than the rowdy crowds and booming loudspeakers of baseball season. Infield, visitors can rent a pair of skates and sail through the illuminated archways and trees on the 350-foot-long ice-skating loop, while listening to local artists like Starlight Choir perform live on the mainstage. (Tickets will be staggered to prevent overcrowding the maze and ice trail). Visitors can also warm their hands with a cup of hot chocolate from the Christmas market, shop for jewelry, homewares and gifts, or head over to Santa’s workshop for pictures and a story.

Hiking Chirico Trail to Poo-Poo Point

No comments:
Located within less than 45 min away from Seattle, Chirico Trail to Poo-Poo Point hike is a "must" for any outdoor adventurer visiting Seattle !

Chirico Trail to Poo-Poo Point hike

Even if you're short on time, this hike ( time to the trailhead from Seattle plus the hike itself ) will take you only half of the day !

The trail is snow free, and accessible year round, but is best enjoyed on a nice sunny day ! But even on an average Seattle rainy day, the tree coverage will provide protection from wind and rain.

Paddleboarding To The Bottom Of Snoqualmie Falls

Looking for once-in-a-lifetime experiences and adventures while visiting Seattle ?

Seattle offers amazing outdoor opportunities for adventure seekers, and outdoor lovers year round ! But fall through spring, they're limited to mostly snow related activities such as skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

Yet, even most Seattleites don't know that there are outdoor activities, that are normally considered to be "summer watersports", could be done year round.

When it comes to watersports, one can enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding,  kiteboarding, surfing, scuba diving, and sailing 365 days a year.

Colonnade Mountain Bike Park In Seattle

No comments:



We've been hearing and reading about Seattle's Colonnade Bike Park for a while now, but haven't had a chance to take my bike to the park. One of the main reasons it took me so long to visit the park was the park's reputation of being not "beginners friendly".

Visit Experience Music Project (EMP) In Seattle For Free Every First Thursday Of The Month

No comments:

Every first Thursday of the month Experience Music Project (EMP) is  free from 5-8pm.

EMP is the brainchild of Paul Allen, Microsoft-cofounder and well-known figure in the Pacific Northwest. Allen's passion for all things Jimi Hendrix led to an extensive collection of Hendrix memorabilia. His initial desire to share this collection with the public grew in scope to become the Experience Music Project.


The museum takes you through music history by immersing you in nearly 80,000 artifacts including photos, sound archives, costumes and musical instruments from notable artists.  Designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, this shrine to rock music and sci-fi is covered by 21,000 aluminum shingles, each painted to emulate the finish of an electric guitar.

It's not just a museum, here you have a chance to try your hand at making music in EMP's Sound Lab, where individual stations quickly teach you to play guitar, drums, or keyboard. Other offerings include the special exhibitions, the Digital Lab, and ( the only feature that got me interested) a performance stage , where you can get on "real " stage and have you 15 minutes of fame (with pictures/DVD to remember).

The Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame is co-located with Experience Music Project.

Sci-Fi fan ?


Than you'll love it here ! It's a mini version of California's Universal Studio with a number of costumed characters and memorabilia from your favorite movies: Terminator, Planet of the Apes, Matrix, and of course Star Track.



Another cool thing I personally liked - Sky Church, a dramatic hall where a "video frieze" spans on a large wall and you can listen to live music, dance and have fun !
