More about these wonderful homes on Atlas Obscura

Visit the Bubbleator!  Built for the Seattle World's Fair in 1962 as an elevator to access all 3 floors of the Armory (which became the Food Circus and is now the Center House), it was retired and moved to a private home in South Seattle as a greenhouse.  It just sits in some guys front yard so anyone can drive by and see it!  It's on the map!

Visit an Alpine Forest, just a few hours from Seattle, Mount Rainier is one of the most stunning natural wonders in the Pacific Northwest, offering breathtaking views, scenic hikes, and a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of city life with just a short drive out of Seattle.  Go directly to the source (and do not rely on GPS alone!)  Mt. Rainier National Park

Ride the Monorail back-and-forth!  The Monorail just goes between Downtown Seattle and the Seattle Center (Space Needle), but it's a great way to visit as you can park in one area and just ride the Monorail to visit the other.  When downtown, walk to the Pikes Place Market and then down to the Waterfront and then take a Water Taxi to West Seattle, get some Asian Taco's at Marination Station and then come right back (only $5.75!)
