Winterfest Ice Skating at Seattle Center

Winterfest Ice Skating at Seattle Center

My daughter decided that for her borthday, she wanted to go ice skating and I told her that there was no where to skate around here.  She of course had already done her homework and pointed out that we could ice skate practically under the Space Needle if we wanted to.  Seattle Center has Winterfest going on right now and there are lots of events including…ice skating.

Ice Skating at Seattle Center was something indeed!  It was especially significant for my daughter who has grown up hearing stories of her great grandparents having their first dates ice skating at the Seattle Center.  The Winterfest Ice Skating Rink is a in Fisher Pavilion and very crowded, but a pretty amazing winter experience overall.

Seattle Center is the heart of Seattle local events.  It is a great place to explore and a wonderful part of Uptown (Lower Queen Anne).  If you are interested in Queen Anne homes or other Seattle neighborhoods that are close by Seattle Center, then let me know and I will show you my favorites!

Queen Anne Seattle: I have my nice festive red sweater on and I am parked with my red netbook waiting for my clients between Queen Anne real estate appointments.  The wind is crazy today -Lake Union is tossing around and even Green Lake was a bit rough when i drove by earlier!

I started this one a couple days ago and my Queen Anne buyer clients showed up just a bit early for me to complete it in the time I had, but good news!  We did indeed put in an offer on this gorgeous green view home and got mutual acceptance yesterday!  They are so excited and thrilled to get to go into Christmas with a signed contract ensuring that they get their dream home….at a great price!

There are some wonderful properties on the Queen Anne real estate market right now – whether you are looking for view homes – both city or Puget Sound views, foreclosures, short sales, and more, there are some pretty great houses and townhomes.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
