  • I was there a few months ago. Of course the Space Needle and the farmers market are must sees. Mt. Ranier if you can make it. The Fremont Troll is another cool site.

    We went to the Alligator Cafe, a cool bar PJ played back in the day. You also have the Moore Theatre, where they also played. Benaroya Hall and the SAM ( museum) is cool.

    The farmers market is very cool. Great seafood. Take a boat ride too, great views.

    Enjoy your trip!!

    I stayed at the Green Tortoise hostel on Pike street, great location.

    There's a Starbucks every 30 feet out there. Try Seattles Best coffee, I liked it better.

  • ^the Starbucks in Columbia Tower, 40th floor has free views.
    Actually, i love Roy Street Coffee & Tea in Capital Hill (one of Stbx new concept stores). Best coffee i've ever had. Licensed too though. Good vibes.

    Kerry Park for an amazing view

    Agua Verde - Mexican food along Portage Bay. they also have the best Mango Margaritas, imho.

    i love REI too, where i feel like a kid in a candy store. We just don't have anything as good up here.

    i guess if you do Pike Place, you might wanna check out the gum wall too. very ick!

    hope you have a good time, i love Seattle, it feels a bit like a second home to me.

    ps: there's a Google map created for Seattle Couchsurfers, that you might find helpful:

    The Edgewater Hotel is very cool. Many rock acts stayed there back in the day when I'm told you could buy bait and fish from your room. The Beatles stayed there I believe around '64 and Led Zeppelin also stayed there circa 1969 leading to some legendary stories of excess. The Fairmont Olympic Hotel is a beautiful spot even just to look around or grab a cocktail at. Enjoy your visit.

  • Seattle's Best is owned by Starbucks?? That sucks.

    Man, there are so many homeless heroin addicts out there. You can't walk 5 feet without someone asking you for money or a cigarette. So sad. Other than that my visit was great!!

    People seem stuck in the grunge era though, but that's not a bad thing.

  • If I'm making a daytrip from Seattle to Mount Rainier National Park, what is the best one or two things to see?  And is do-able in a daytrip. Maybe two hours each way?  Leaving Seattle in early AM and returning early evening.  Myrtle Falls, Grove of the Patriarchs, Paradise Valley/Trail? Appreciate any thoughts! Thanks
