Travel: Seattle

Oh Seattle. I always had this idea of Seattle in my mind; a place serene, mildly untouched, calm, collected and with a mind of its own. Truthfully, I think I loved Seattle before we ever touched down at SeaTac. When we left, we were sure we were head over heels. We were in deep.

While four days wasn't quite long enough (we could have spent the rest of our lives exploring the PNW), we're happy we saw what we did, and we already have some of our favorite Seattle haunts. If you're traveling to the Emerald City soon, these locales won't disappoint.

 - Stay somewhere other than Downtown Seattle to explore the local neighborhoods. We recommend an AirBnB, like the location we stayed at in Wallingford (our hosts Brian and Gina were so sweet and welcoming).

 - Go where the locals go. Head to Thai Tom near the University District for unbelievably good (and cheap) Thai Food, and stop by a local pub (especially one that brews their own beer, like Elysian Brewing) and grab a good brew. And get a good read in at Half Price Books.

 - Drink a lot of coffee. Head to the original Starbucks (how can you not?), but spend most of your time at the local shops, like Zoka Coffee.

 - Walk around Pike Place Market, and eat fresh seafood. A lot of it. As much as you can.

 - Go to a Sounders game. GO SOUNDERS!

 - Adventure around your neighborhood. Take in the unique houses, the succulents, foliage, and even say hello to Dave Matthews if you can.

 - Take in the view and enjoy the rain.
