Seattle’s Chihuly Garden and Glass
If you haven’t heard of Dale Chihuly by now, you’ve got to start using Google more often. Besides the fact that I can never spell or pronounce Chuluuy, Chaloolee, Chuluhly, Chihuly, his one of kind blown glass creations are world renowned. So stunning they are worthy of centering a trip around. Chihuly’s creations have begun to appear in galleries and other venues all over the world. And, although Chihuly has a traveling show that moves around to various botanic gardens, in Seattle Washington Chihuly’s Garden and Glass show is permanent. Thus, allowing the glass exhibits throughout the gardens to be more expansive and creative. Located at the base of the Space Needle with the Seattle Bay and Olympic National Park filling the landscape, your 10,000 photos will have the perfect background. We are fans and you might be too after you look at this Chihuly Garden and Glass Photo Tour from Seattle.
While you’re in Seattle, there are many other options to experience besides Seattle’s Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. Make a quick day trip to Bainbridge Island, visit one of their many nearby winery’s such as Chateau Ste. Michelle, or take a stroll through Olympic Sculpture Park. Oh, and dont forget to visit the infamous Pike Place Market to see flying fish and then see if you can find the oozy, gooey, ‘you wont believe your eyes’, sticky GUM WALL! So disgusting it’s cool.
Bonus: I would highly recommend that you extend your trip another few days and venture over to Butchart Gardens, located on Victoria Island. We brought our mothers here on a ‘Garden Tour’ for their 70th birthdays and it was spectacular (photo tour still to come). You should also consider jumping on a whale watching zodiac raft tour to hangout with the killer whales. Both of these are well worth the extra time and effort to make happen.
Timing can be an issue in Seattle as it likes to rain – a lot. So plan accordingly and try not to let the weather change your plans; dress accordingly.
Above all, enjoy Seattle’s Best.
