Our hotel was right by the Pike Place Market so we had an amazing spot to just stand there and stare at the horizon. It felt very surreal to finally be in Seattle. I grew up loving and still do love the movie Sleepless In Seattle. So to actually be walking around the Market where some of the movie was filmed and to be in the city was so cool.
We explored the city until are feet were aching. Thank goodness for Uber and Lyft! We also discovered the monorail which was cheap, clean and took us from point a to point b. We hit the majority of the major tourist attractions since this was our first trip. We saw the Gum Wall, went to Pike Market, ate at The Metropolitan Grill, visited the Space Needle, saw Escala, visited the Columbia Center Sky View, got coffee from the first Starbucks and toured the Chihuly Art Glass Museum. And of course I'm going to share all of our travels on here.
When I'm not writing up my reviews of all the amazing stuff we saw and did in Seattle, I'll be planning my next visit to Washington. Next time we want to fly into Seattle and then drive further north and visit other areas of the state. Have you ever been to the Pacific Northwest? If so what's some of your favorite places in Washington?
