If you are planning on making arrangements to visit Seattle, Washington, I’m certain you’ve checked out all kinds of facts about the activities going on around there and the location. There are lots of things that make up the activities going on there reason been that they attract a larger part of the population than things that appeal to certain set of people.
I consider myself as young, fun loving, and hip. While there are lots of things on the long list of activities that I find very appealing, I prefer to go off the beaten path a little and check out things or visit places that are not overpopulated, overcrowded, and simply overdone. I find interest in places that not all other tourist or people taking a break in Seattle city are standing in line ahead of me to do. Here are parts of the few attractive tourist locations and other activities that got to do during my Seattle city break.
Seattle Ghost, Murder and Mystery Tours
Coming up first on my list is my visit to the Private Eye on Seattle Murder and Mystery Tour. The three tours proposed are: the Capital Hill Tour, Mystery Tour and the Queen Anne Murder and each one of them cost about $25 per head and last for two and a half hours, and also the Haunted Happenings which is also called the Seattle Ghost Tour, this particular tour last for about 3 hours and it is in addition to the $25 per head. These are great places for fans of true-law breaking or simply dusty old detective novels. It is not a tourist site I would advise a faint hearted or squeamish person to visit. They are definitely great places to visit while in Seattle.
Seattle Off the Beaten Path Museums
After the visit to the Private Eye, you should definitely visit the Seattle Museums of Mysteries, it is a museum dedicated to the research of paranormal activities. The Museums of Mysteries is the only one of its kind in the whole of Seattle. If you are interested in tall tales, UFOs, legends, ghosts, Big Foot, lore and circles, you should pay the museum a visit. Though things such as this are not necessary in our day to day activities, but it is still fascinating to see artifacts that have been collected about stories you’ve heard or read about.
Taking a trip back to reality, one the places I read about when making preparations to visit Seattle is the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, it turned to be one of the amazing places I visited during my Seattle city break. It was crowded with little amount of tourist, but never mind, you wouldn’t have problem with dealing with people because you don’t necessarily have to engage in any conversation with them. I’m not totally sure if my attraction to this comes from my enthusiasm with science fiction movies and literature or maybe from the involvement of science fiction in the society over the last few decades. Well maybe a slight combination of both. Or maybe it is just the cool factor alone, whatever the reason might be, the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame is one of my favorite places in Seattle and I hope you would find it fascinating when you visit Seattle.
If you decide to visit the Science Fiction Museum, you should definitely take into consideration buying a combo ticket for the Experience Music Project. On its own the Experience Music project is a bit costly but when purchase a combination ticket for both you would save enough cash to take the sting out of the visit. If you are a music lover, especially rock and roll, then this experience is definitely going to be worth it. This price is a bit excessive if you are visiting on a budget but if you carefully manage your budget and save in other areas that will make up for the price.
There are lots of activities, places to visit, and experience in Seattle. I’m confident that I’ve familiarized you with some places that are little off the beaten path and at the same time suggested places of interest. The most important thing not to overlook when visiting Seattle is the fact that vacations are fun and you should have lots of fun.
