Some entertainment tips for those of you who plan to attend NANOG 88 in Seattle:

1. The Connections Museum is a must-see for telecom enthusiasts (which
I assume you are since you're attending a NANOG meeting). Six
different phone switches (some electromechanical) and a boatload of
other stuff taking up a floor and a half of a "central office"
building. In good working order. You can see and, to some extent,

Beware: It's only open on Sundays from 10 am to 3 pm, so if you want
to check it out, you'll have to come in early for it.

2. The Space Needle is the iconic Seattle landmark. Buy tickets for
the time slot you want a couple days in advance. I personally like
watching the sunset from there.

At the same complex as the space needle you can also catch the Museum
of Popular Culture and the 1962 World's Fair monorail. The monorail is
a 1962 vision of the future, with vintage German-built cars in good
working order.

Short walk from the hotel to the Westlake monorail station, which will
take you over to the space needle.

3. Pike Place Market is another Seattle icon. Moderate walk from the hotel.

4. Museum of Flight (this is Boeing's home town, so it's a high
quality aircraft museum)

5. Snoqualmie Falls Hydroelectric Museum and power plant

6. Northwest Railway Museum (also near Snoqualmie Falls)

Beware that Snoqualmie Falls is a solid half hour outside of the city.

Mt. Rainer, if you want to check it out, is a full-day trip: 2.5 hours
to get there, 2.5 hours to get back plus the time you spend in the
park. It's too far to catch it in an afternoon. Decent odds of getting
a shirtsleeves on the snow pack picture like this one:,
which was also taken in June.

Also, beware that downtown Seattle parking spaces are super-tight. If
you rent a car, get a compact. Really.

Dear NANOG Community,

It has been brought to our attention that even though the text is correct for meeting registration in our original message below, the link embedded with the text is incorrect.

We apologize for this inconvenience and encourage you to use this corrected link to register for NANOG 88:

One observation on that, for those who find themselves in the area of the Westin Building for ISP/telecom related work:

The Amazon HQ underground parking on 6th ave, with entrance literally across the street from the Westin Building, is available for the public to use. Entrance is on 6th ave between Virginia and Lenora. You don’t need an Amazon access badge/etc to use it, standard pay upon exit system. I believe it’s marked on Google Maps as the “Amazon Doppler” garage.

It has slightly better prices than the Westin’s own parking garage and the vehicle spacing is not bad, I have parked full size SUVs in it without too much trouble. Not that it’s a good idea to leave bags or anything visible in an unattended vehicle in downtown Seattle, but the garage also has slightly better security than your average unstaffed parking garage elsewhere in the city.

A nifty thing to go check out is the Fremont Troll.


I also highly recommend the rock n roll museum:

Two more things:

Seattle is -very- dog friendly. You'll encounter our generally
well-behaved canine companions on the street, in stores and possibly
even in the hotel and event venues. Pack your allergy medication if
you need it.

Summer is good weather time in Seattle. Expect sunshine, mild to warm
temperatures and light if any rain.

Bill Herrin

That's good to know. I was thinking of parking at the Westin since it's a familiar garage for me.
