Posing at the Museum of Flight - Seattle

Posing at the Museum of Flight

Check the Concorde and Air Force One first

There are so many things to do inside the Museum of Flight. Sometimes it takes a lot of time to check and see on all the planes.

It depends on what time you decided to visit the museum. If you started late, it's better to check the Air Force One plane and the Concorde first because there is always a long line after 12 pm. Besides, the tours on these two planes close at 3:00 pm. So, make sure that you got your money's worth and not miss the two tours. The fee is $16.00 and that is costly!

Unique Suggestions: If you are late, take the tour of the Air Force One and Concorde first and then move to the museum.

Fun Alternatives: Go visit the museum early! Then you will have all the time and not miss anything including the live drama and/or the movie shows!

Parking problems Downtown Seattle Review

It is hard to find parking in Seattle. When you are going to downtown Seattle, make sure to take the bus instead of driving. The bus is free if you catch the bus before the International District. There are specified free zones. Bus fare is $1.50.

Parking is expensive in downtown Seattle.

Unique Suggestions: When you are driving, make sure to park on designated areas. Most of the streets in downtown Seattle are one- ways. If you park on designated areas, make sure to read the signs. Most parking are parallel parking. Some buildings offer parking to the public but it is extemely expensive.

Some signs say that the parking is limited to some hours. Your car might get towed away after 3 pm. The reason why? They open that parking area to the route of buses during peak hours which start at 3 pm.

Fun Alternatives: Take the bus instead. When you are in downtown Seattle, the bus is free. There are designated free bus zones!

Or be an early bird. The parking fee is cheaper when you are early.
