Seattle Waterfront: Live View
WATERFRONT BRIEFS: January 2022
Seattle is one of America’s most vaccinated cities. Over 90% of Seattle residents above the age of 12 have received at least one covid vaccine shot. Proof of vaccination or a negative covid test result is required in order to participate in various public activities. If you are not yet vaccinated, then please avoid crowds until you have the chance to get yours.
The piers are open. Start your day on the waterfront with a walk or run. Starbucks opens at 6AM on Pier 55 (don’t miss the new gallery next door).
Spend time exploring, shopping, taking pictures, and eating. Put a cherry on top by catching the last ride of the day on the Seattle Great Wheel at 10PM (11PM on Fridays and Saturdays). It is warm and comfortable inside the gondolas.
Seattle Aquarium hours are 9:30AM to 6:00PM daily (last entry at 5:00PM). Advance ticket purchase online is very convenient in order to secure a time and skip the line. For the best deal and unlimited visits year-round ($79), become a member.
In January, Seattle will begin to experience more daylight, a full hour more between the start and end of this month.
2022 has started with some white stuff on the ground. It’s called snow, apparently. We don’t see it often here, so gentle reminder to dress warmly and watch your step in case it’s slippery. Thanks to all the merchants who help to keep the sidewalks clear. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
