Take Exit 158 from Interstate 5 and experience The Museum of Flight, one of the largest space museums in the world. From the Wright brothers to outer space—the wonder of flight comes alive in more than 85 historic aircraft, interactive exhibits and family activities. Journey through history aboard the original jet Air Force One and the supersonic Concorde. Try on the cockpit of the Mach 3 Blackbird spyplane. Explore the Red Barn–the workshop where Bill Boeing built his first airplane. Take a wild aerobatic flight in the X-Pilot motion simulator. Discover stories of unimaginable bravery in the brand new Personal Courage Wing, featuring 28 WWI and WWII fighters.

Explore the new Charles Simonyi Space Gallery. Stretching over 100 feet, and four stories high, the Full Fuselage Space Shuttle Trainer was used by NASA to train every space shuttle astronaut. The Museum has added stairs and ramps to make the expansive cargo bay accessible to all visitors, including those with disabilities. Other artifacts used on space shuttle missions are also on display.

    My winter adventure starts at the SeaTac Marriott which would be my base camp. From there, most of the places I want to visit are within easy reach. These include Pike's Market, the Boeing Museum of Flight, a tour of the Boeing production facilities, Theo Chocolate factory tour, and a trip to the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.

    My story starts at the Radisson Hotel Gateway Seattle Tacoma Airport, which has the best connections to Seattle (and the airport) I could imagine. Makes a great base even if you don't rent a car. Heading out to museums, the Museum of Flight was first on the list, followed by McChord Air Museum - if you like aviation, don't miss this fantastic collection. The Seattle and Tacoma Art Museums are both wonderful, and I can't visit Seattle without going to the Space Needle - it is such an iconic structure, and I always manage to find a new restaurant in the area to try for lunch. My final trip is to the lot where I plan to build a retirement home. Yes, I liked the place so much, I bought a piece of it.
