We would like to see a fireworks show, and from the reviews that I've read, the Gas Works Park show is the best, and Bellevue is a close second. I looks like the Gas Works Park is a good walk from our hotel.
Parking appears to be a problem for events around Seattle, and downtown Seattle looks like it has REAL parking problem. The La Quinta is supposed to have parking for guests.
HELP! What would you suggest for the 4th? How do we get there? (we'll have car). What else is a must see? I want to ride the monorail and don't care where it goes, just a ride. I think that I can catch it near the Space Needle and do a round trip. We were going to go up in the Needle to watch the fireworks and have dinner, but it is pretty expensive for food. So we're back to plan 1, go to a festival. The Gas Works has reserved seats for $25 which are SUPPOSED to have a good view of the fireworks. My concern is how to we get there AND how do we get back to our hotel?
What is must see?? Should we try to drive an catch a ferry to one of the islands? We leave Sunday, July 6th for a cruise.
