I can’t describe what a beautiful city Seattle is. This was my first time there so I was thinking it would be gloomy and gray. Was I wrong! Seattle is so full of vibrant colors from their market to the Chihuly exhibit, to the food. I couldn’t stop taking in all the beauty and great food (and coffee!) they had to offer. Not to mention, it was perfectly in the low 80’s when we went. I think we brought the LA weather with us and I’m sure the Seattleites didn’t mind.
We took a coffee crawl tour when we first arrived that I highly recommend, Seattle by Foot. It is highly customized for you and your group. Ask for Ed. He was so knowledgeable and funny. Tell him that I sent ya ;)! Not to mention, he got us coffee wasted! We were literally Sleepless in Seattle.
We had a lovely dinner at Terra Plata in Capitol Hill. They source locally so you know that you are getting the freshest food possible.
My absolute favorite place was Pike Place Market, a foodie’s paradise! There was so much to take in and to literally take in. We spent the entire second day there. You really can’t go wrong with which food you decide to try there. Unlike many tourist attractions where the food and the local vibe falters, here the flowers were the brightest and the biggest I have ever seen, the clam chowder was the best, the produce were the freshest, and the coffee was delicious!
