Seattle Vacation Spots

I have been to Seattle 4 times over the last 5 years. My most recent trip was April 2007. I have discovered some very interesting spots to visit while in the Seattle area. I decided to create this lens to share them. Even though there are over 200 lens related to Seattle, you will not find the information on this hub. It speaks to the variety of interesting topics that Seattle has to offer.

      BigJim, To answer your question, I think that says a lot about Freemont and the people who lives there. I was surprised to see it too.

      Hey Jack. Just a question arising from one of your pictures; Why is there a sculpture of Lenin in the USA?

      Thanks for some great photos Jack. Did you visit the Boeing Museum? Exquisite carpentry from the early 1900's. Fun using public transport to get there.
