  1. We are generally not big partiers on New Years Eve. But we have travelled specifically for NYE before to places that know how to celebrate. Since we are often on the west coast for the holidays, it was great to learn that the Seattle celebrations may warrant a visit. I would certainly not want to miss a view of the Space Needle show. A classic ballroom dance night would be perfect. Thanks for the tips!

    1. Oh wow! What kind of cool places did you travel to for NYE? I want to do the event at the Chihuly Garden where you can see the fireworks through the glass ceiling right at the space needle.

  2. Those are some great ideas, that I would be up for any of them. The dinner cruise might be extra special, especially if you could watch any fireworks over the water.
