There’s plenty to do in Seattle along the shores of Elliott Bay and under the shadow of Mt. Rainier. From Museums, Antiques shops, Art Galleries to Sports Venues, fine dining and great shopping.
The Inn of Twin Gables is located in the Queen Anne Hill district. Located to the north of downtown, this is one of Seattle’s most scenic neighborhoods. Queen Anne combines sensational views with quiet residential elegance and many shops, restaurants, and coffee houses. At the base of the hill is the 74-acre Seattle Center which was the site of the World’s Fair and home of the Space Needle, the Monorail to downtown, the Pacific Science Center, the Fun Forest Amusement Park, the Children’s Museum, the Opera House, the Intiman and Repertory Theatres, and the Key Arena.
See what Seattle has to offer you, and plan for a wonderful vacation! Come back often, because you never know what you may see next!
