Registered Guest Program Tour Day

Breakfast: 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Tour of the Chihuly Garden and Glass 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Agenda is subject to change.

Our Registered Guest Tour Day begins by boarding a chartered motorcoach to Seattle Center, home to museums and attractions including our destination: the iconic Chihuly Garden and Glass.

At the gallery of local artist Dale Chihuly, our group will be immersed in the world of this art glass pioneer’s exhibition. Contained in eight interior galleries, lush outdoor garden, and the centerpiece Glasshouse, we’ll see the exhibit that provides a glimpse into the inspiration and influences that inform the artist’s career. Get your cameras ready to capture the beauty of his art!

Our motorcoach will then take us for a short trip to eat lunch at Wild Ginger, an important fixture of the Seattle food scene since 1989.  With a cuisine that spans the Pacific Rim from China to Indonesia, Wild Ginger offers a family-style serving format encouraging sharing, conversation, and exploration.

Before heading back to the hotel, we will travel a short distance to experience the historic Pike Place Market, host to over 600 businesses operating in the United States’ oldest continually operated farmers’ market. We’ll have time on our own to meet the Market’s lively characters, see fish fly, watch cheese being made, and discover the unique treasures that can only be found at this Market. We will return to the Hyatt Regency Bellevue in time to join us at the Product Showcase.

Important notes: Food and drink are not allowed in the gallery, neither are large bags. Photos and flashes are encouraged, but please, NO tripods.
