Jimi Hendrix Grave Site

Reviewed By 425glenh

Memorial is pretty impressive - fitting for a most impressive musician. But what really struck me were the notes, letters, and gifts left by fans from all over the US. Not sure how often the area is cleared/cleaned but during my visit, there were about a half dozen notes/letters, pizza box and beer bottles, and my favorite - a pair of panties. I think Jimi's memorial is more impressive than Bruce Lee's.

Emerald Downs

Reviewed By KweqSmanit - Seattle, Washington

Emerald Downs is a fun and low cost way to spend the afternoon at the track.
I had a great time and it is an entertaining way to spend some time whether you are a master gambler or a novice going for your first time.

It is actually lower cost than going bowling or seeing an evening movie for two with popcorn if you only bet the minimum of two dollars a race and pick "show" on your bet.You will win just often enough to always get your money back through the day and this way you may continue to wager for an afternoon.
When you start at 1pm at the first race and leave at 6pm and divide your total money you spent divided by the number of hours you were there it becomes cheaper than other forms of entertainment.
We determined we spend only $ 3.60 an hour, which is cheaper than other forms of going out one could do such as bowling, movies, the fair, etc.

The track officials and security and cashiers were all helpful and friendly as well as the restaurant staff and the front entrance booth person.They pointed out betting procedures and were smiling and cheerful.

The signage was clear and well placed and restrooms were clean.The PA system is loud enough but sometimes you need to listen well as the crowd is loud over what he is saying.

You may bet inside the main building as well as outside near where they parade the horses and show them prerace. As well you may purchase beverages there and they have outside seating with umbrellas to shade yourself from the sun.

There are plenty of restaurants to choose from at Emerald Downs from barbecue to finer dining to Quick Picks cafe to the several bars with food available for purchase.

They have both an elevator and stairs and covered for rain and exposed areas.

Also available to get to by bus and taxi and UBER.

Great experience at iFly Seattle. I do have scoliosis but it wasn't a factor with flying. I made sure to stretch ahead of time and remain relaxed. That's the key is to "Relax!" The instructor was not only cute, but also informative and made sure my group had the best experience. I was able to do a lot on my first try. Make sure to hydrate as it is a lot of air and you will get dry mouth.

Reviewed By Barry E - Lake Stevens, Washington

We stopped in while on a little vacation for my wife's birthday. I have driven by for several years on the way to the King County fair grounds, first time stopping in. They really upped their game! The facility was HUGE! very large parking garage and several entrances. The interior was clean and colorful. Much more space to move around than many of the local casinos kept the open feeling throughout the Casino. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. They really wanted you to enjoy your time there. We strolled, shopped, ate and gambled. 2.5 house went by very fast. We both had a wonderful time.

The Outlet Collection Seattle

The Outlet Collection is the largest fully enclosed outlet mall in the Pacific Northwest. Encompassing over 1 million square feet, The Outlet Collection is home to a unique mix of over 130 stores. The Outlet Collection is conveniently located at the intersection of Hwy 18 and SR 167 in Auburn. Visit our website for a complete list of stores, special offers, and mall events.

Reviewed By CarloHelmond - Helmond, The Netherlands

This is a good sized mall. Formerly known as the Supermall. It does have about 138 stores on one level. The easiest way to get there is by car. Plenty of parking around the mall. There are other shops and restaurants around the mall. The mall does have a food court, good for a quick bite. I do see a trend where you get the discount on the second item that you buy (e.g. buy one, get one 50% off)
