Seattle is our last stop in the USA for the YoYoFactory West Coast Tour. We got in a day early so we had a chance to go around to sight see. First stop was across the street from our hotel, the Space Needle.

 

 

Then we walked down to the historic Pike Place Market. On the far end of Pike Place is the gum wall. It was hands down the grossest thing we saw on tour.

 

 

Next we went to the pier for dinner and to watch the sun set over the sound. In the back ground you can see our next destination.

 

 

 

 

The Seattle Great Wheel offered an amazing view of the city at night.

 

 

 

Alex caught a late night skate session under the Needle.

 

 

Seattle really showed us a good time in our last day in America. The crowd was eager to learn and we had a great time.

 

 

Tons of locals also came out to hang out and try new YoYoFactory prototypes.

 

 

With all the locals we had a great Pro Contest with a lot of stiff competition.

 

 

 

 

 

We can’t say it enough, Seattle was awesome! Thanks to everyone who came out! Next stop, CANADA!
