Hello, there. Today’s outing actually is more like a few different activities that are all in the same area. And… drumroll please… the area is Seattle Center! Not only does it have 3 wonderful museums, but it is also host to Seattle Children’s Theatre and the Chihuly Garden & Glass (oh, and the Space Needle too!).
