It's yet another Thursday and aren't you glad that the work week is almost over!?
Don't get ahead of yourself though, there are still 48 hours left before you don't have to worry about returning to the office. Luckily for you, we have a few great things that you can do today that may just take your mind off the time between your mini-vacay. If you happen to be in the Seattle, Washington area, this installment of Dollars & Sense is just for you. Check it out below.
Visit The Space Needle
As New York has the Empire State Building and Paris has the Eiffel Tower, Seattle has the Space Needle. Built in 1962 for the World’s Fair, the futuristic tower has been hovering over the expanding skyline like an inquisitive UFO ever since. On clear days, the observation deck yields panoramic views of the entire city, Elliott Bay and Puget Sound, the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges—and if you’re lucky, Mount Rainier, which lies 100 miles southeast of the city. The neat interactive kiosks provide factoids about the city and allow you to zoom in on different parts of the view—if you can’t get tickets to a Seattle Mariners game, try zooming in on the opening pitch from here.
