Travel: Seattle

Seattle

Last week I took a trip to Seattle for the first time. Despite what many people say about the weather it only rained once and the other days were pretty sun. Seattle has a great mix of mid-size city feel, surrounded by green lush, water and a ton of outdoor activities to do. The city is really walkable and is ranked 4th friendliest biking city in America.

If you visit Seattle, be sure to check out the EMP Museum (Experience Music Project). Contrary to the name, the museum also includes a Sci-Fi and Horror Film section which I liked. The architecture around the EMP is also really interesting.

There’s no lack of food choices in Seattle either, thanks to the diverse city the options are pretty comparable to NYC. Some of the places we ate and I recommend include Westward, Mikes Noodle House in the Chinatown, Pie Bar (Alcohol and Pies) and Taylor’s Shellfish, both in Capital Hill. The Seafood at Pikes Market is really good and while your there check out Oriental Mart, a small tucked away Filipino restaurant that’s amazing.
