Trip Moments

The tallest building in Seattle is 184 meters high. The best time to climb the tower is when it is almost sunset. There is a self-service ticket machine under the space needle. Line up to get to the tower, along the road is a bulletin board that introduces the construction process of the space needle. After queuing to the tower, I could not wait to rush to the terrace. The spectacular scenery makes people scream, and the first day I did not think of it. I saw the Rainier Snow Mountain. Under the backdrop of the snow-capped mountains, the city is very dreamy, and that view is now in front of my eyes. At the scene, the snow-capped mountains are more magnificent, and the greatness of nature and the greatness of mankind are combined in one picture, which is really moving. The endless snow-capped mountains surround the city. A touch of the sunset against the city skyline and a beautiful day is coming to an end. There is also a last touch of sunshine on the north side of the building, and Union Lake is in front of me. It was getting late, and finally, I glanced at the snow-capped mountains, as if they are floating in the air, like a dream.

One of the places I particularly like in Seattle is the Pike Place Market. I went to a city, the first place I like to go to is the market, the second place I like to go to is the heights. In the market, you can feel the hustle and bustle of the city, and feel the true state of life of the local residents. Standing on a high point, you can overlook the whole city. One understands from the details and one feels from the whole. Located between Pike Street and First Avenue and West Avenue on Virginia Street. Founded in 1907, the predecessor of the Seattle Pike Market is the rural market.

Remember the movie "Beijing meets Seattle" where Frank took Wen Jiajia to buy Alaska crabs? The location is Seattle's Pike Place Market. Known as the "Soul of Seattle", the market was founded on August 17, 1907 and is the oldest farmer's market in the United States. It has been through a hundred years of wind and rain. It sells the freshest fruits and vegetables and seafood on the day. There is no middleman to make a difference, the prices are reasonable, and it provides for the most of Seattle's daily life. There is also the world's first Starbucks, the "world's dirtiest spot" gum wall, and the dock terrace overlooking the rolling snow-capped mountains.
