Bucket List Accomplishments

It's hard to believe that I have lived in Seattle for 3 months, time really does fly by when you are having fun and the city you live in is just absolutely awesome. This week I was able to cross off three things from my Seattle Bucket List: Riding the Giant Wheel, attending a play at the 5th Avenue Theatre, and visiting the Gum Wall.

Giant Wheel:
This ferris wheel just opened June 29th and has instantly become a Seattle favorite for observing amazing views that rival the space needle and is located at the waterfront. I had my first experience at sunset and I got to see the sun disappear behind the Olympic Mountains. The views were breathtaking and  the experience was unforgettable with friends. I encourage anyone visiting the Seattle area to give the ferris wheel a whirl because you won't be disappointed!

Gum Wall:
There's no better sticky situation that the Gum Wall located right under Pikes Marketplace. It seems like many people take advantage of getting their iconic picture with the most salvia-covered wall in Seattle and then bypass all the other gems in the alley. I got to have dinner at Alibi Room and had a Greek Pie and it was AMAZING, and it is right across from the wall! Don't forget to have a stick of gum in your purse so you can contribute to the artwork on the wall, and then definitely use hand sanitizer.

5th Avenue Theatre:
I got to say I may be one of the few people that didn't really care for the movie Rent but I had the expectations that I would love the play....and I did. I mean you cannot watch Rent and be immune to humming "Seasons of Love" for the rest of the night. It was a great night for people watching and the theatre was even more pretty than the Orpheum theatre in Omaha.
