Seattle, Washington had been on my list of top places to check out for the longest time. I was lucky (and unlucky) enough to have visited right at the end of the winter season…and boy was it COLD. Despite being use to the cool temperatures in San Francisco, Seattle’s chill was on another level ! Here are some photos of my trip, as well as my thoughts on some of the food and sights I checked out (: I hope this gives you ideas on your next trip to Seattle!
1 SEATTLE’S WATERFRONT
The waterfront was SURREAL and is definitely worth checking out. There are numerous storefronts to roam around and many desk areas to take photos. There color of the deep sea is much MUCH more gorgeous in person. It reminded me of pier 39 in San Francisco…minus all the seagulls! As you can tell…I was pretty layered up and barely managed to take my hands out of my pockets )=
Be sure to catch the sunset here. The reflection of the water against the sun beam will make your eyes melt!!
2 GLASS MUSEUM
I made a visit to the glass museum and was very fascinated by all the glass art they showcased. But to be perfectly honest, the visit was not completely worth the cost. The museum is comparable it to the de-Young museum in San Francisco whose top desk is FREE to the public btw (winnn). I do have to admit though…the fresh air was KILLER (in a great way). I felt like my lungs were getting a new breath of life!
3 THE SKYDECK
You cannot go to Seattle and not take trip to the sky deck observatory. This gem will give you killer views of the city and will most definitely take your breath away (literally).
You probably cannot tell, but despite being bundled up, I was still shivering up there! So be sure to wear extra layers to stay warm!
Seattle’s Chinatown did not blow my mind entirely, BUT what did catch my interest were the roasted chestnuts being sold outside of a grocery market.
It. was. to. die. for!!!
5 KERRY PARK
Kerry park is usually on many peoples bucket list and for a good reason. The views are simply stunning!
6 ORIGINAL STARBUCKS
OK, ok, hear me out here. Sure you can probably get your Starbucks fix just about anywhere nowadays, but how awesome is it to stop into the original godfather of all Starbucks?! Well worth a peep? Heck yes!
As far as food goes, yelp was my best friend during this trip. Since the weather was so brutal, wherever we found the closest food spots were where we ate at. Its always best to be the least picky when you are traveling. Luckily for you, Seattle has bomb food everywhere!
Overall, Seattle was such an incredibly place to check out. It left a lasting impression on my heart and I will for sure be back shortly to check out all the non-touristy spots!
As always, thanks for reading!
