The Seattle Great Wheel

Last month Seattle got a new tourist attraction, "The Seattle Great Wheel" on the waterfront.  I love ferris wheels, so I went to take a ride. Nice but short ride, $15 for 12-15 minutes.  Beautiful views of Seattle, an awesome day and always lots to see and do downtown.

The famous "Ride the Ducks" Seattle city tour.

A waterfront institution, "Ye Olde Curiosity Shop"

Grayline's double decker city tour bus.

The Seattle Great Wheel sits on the end of Miners Landing.
