Views from Seattle

1. Pike Place

Pike Place is one of the most famous market places in Seattle. People can walk around and visit the individual vendors which start selling right at 9 AM. Pike Place offers fresh food, amazing atmosphere, original Starbucks, flowers, and tourists. What more can you ask for?

2. The Seattle Waterfront

Visitors can kick off their trip by walking through the bay and the skyline views will follow you on the other side. Besides the amazing views, people can expect a plethora of entertainment such as bars, restaurants and movie theaters.

3. Olympic Sculpture Park

4. Seattle Art Museum (SAM)

This is a must visit for fans of Seattle, and despite the confusing layout of the museum visitors can enjoy the displays which vary from modern to contemporary. And for those who are conscious of their budgets, the museum offers free visits every Thursday!

5. The Foremont Troll

It’s unique to the area, fun and quirky, and the countless photo ops further prove its popularity among tourists. 

6. The Space Needle 

The Space Needle is an iconic monument in Seattle standing at 605-ft tall and 848 stairs. It is one of the best known symbols in the US, which also acts as an observatory to look over the beautiful city, in its glory. While enjoying the views, visitors can also have dinner.

7. Discovery Park

People who have visited this park say its the best place for hikes through the woods and walks on the beach without getting to far from the city. The park has a great mix of trees, forest, shoreline, and some history as well.  Favorite hikes include the North Beach Trail, which you can get to easiest by the North Parking Lot. 

Top Four Landmarks In Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is an exotic destination for many people, but some of its rare beauty is passed over for beaches and all inclusive resorts. Often, people who chose to experience the tourist version of a country tend to miss out on some amazing attractions these places have to offer. This is no different for Puerto Rico- a country that is rich in culture, history and sightseeing. Below are four of the island’s must see landmarks:

1. Castillo de San Felipe del Morro

Morayma ReyesCommonly known as the “El Morro”, this is one of the best known attractions in San Juan, as well as one of the richest in history. The castle is over 400 years old and it was used to protect the city from travelers, war and even traders from the New World. When visiting this old citadel, one can experience how soldiers lived in the 1500s and bypass war memorabilia such as cannons and sentry boxes. A full majestic view of the city from the top of the El Morro is an extra perk of visiting this landmark.

2. El Yunque

Cascading through the Mosquito Bay on Vieques Island, this beautiful natural wonder is breathtaking. People can kayak during the day and marvel the bountiful flora around, and in the evening witness the forewent waterfall shimmering in the moonlight. This place still remains all natural and has yet to be touched by man.

3. Camuy Caves

Morayma ReyesThis cave system is one of the largest in the world, and its sub-terrain has a diverse eco- makeup. The ravines in the caves stretch as far as 600 feet deep, past an underground river. The adventurous can take this excursion even further by sliding, body rafting and even jumping inside the cave’s edges.

4. Culebrita

Morayma Reyes This is a private beach that is all natural and only a few people have access to it. Located on the east coast of the main island, Culebrita can only be reached by a water taxi or private jet. One of the main attractions of the beach is Playa Tortuga or “Turtle Beach”, which is spread across golden sand and see through blue waters.

Puerto Rico is a beautiful island, and it can offer different experiences to people who chose to take on a unique route when visiting this historical place. Despite your vacation plans, you can’t go wrong even if you spend your whole time sipping a Pina Colada on the beach.
