Wife and I are going to spend a week in Seattle late May/early June. What are some of the must see places, foods, etc?
Hi Orange stranger,
Seattle is great (IMO). Lots of good food & music. But... if your schedule permits, I suggest getting out into the San Juan Islands. There are some great experiences. My favorite is the Doe Bay Resort on Orcas Island. Very relaxing. Good hiking & views.
In doing some research about it, I am struck by that as well. It's one of those places that I've always wanted to visit that just exudes "coolness" in my mind. The fact that there's so much to see in terms of nature/hiking, etc is just an added bonus.I absolutely love Seattle. I don't think there's any other city in the country that more perfectly blends urban and nature.
Thanks for that. A lot of what you posted I saw as well, and looks great. I definitely want to go to the Boeing airplane museum. Is that outside the city with their plant? Also pumped to go to a Mariners game. The Angels are in town that weekend. Mike TROUT!! Is the Jimi Hendrix museum the same thing as the pop culture museum?Hi Orange stranger,
Visited recently with my son and we had a blast. We got a tour of the Safeco baseball field. There is a gargantuan Ferris wheel overlooking the sound that’s worthwhile. The space needle may sound corny but we had dinner up at the top while it was spinning and the views were astonishing. There’s also a Chihuly glass museum display at the space needle complex along with the Jimi Hendrix museum. I can’t recommend the Boeing airplane museum enough. Truly astounding. Both the indoor displays and the full-size outdoor displays. A must. Also there’s an underground tour that discusses the less savory but definitely interesting side of Seattle and it’s founding. I don’t know if they’re still giving duck tours but we enjoyed that too. We did all this without an automobile we Uber’d and Airbnb’d. We booked a seaplane tour which would’ve been great to fly over the sound but the weather didn’t cooperate so they canceled it. That is all. Have fun.
Yes! Absolutely. We’ll be staying in the central district. Any recommendations for vegetarians? My wife is vegetarian. I also love seafood and we both love ramen.Lived there for two years. If you want restaurant advice, let me know. I can get you some great places to eat at.
