chloecottoncandy asked: I'll be visiting Seattle over spring break this year and I've never been! I'll be staying in the U-district area, what are some must sees and cool places to go to for food/fun?? thank you!!
Seattle is awesome. Things you must do include: -Visit Pike’s Place Market (make sure to see the first-ever Starbucks, the flying fish, the gum wall and Beecher’s Cheese) -Do the Seattle Underground Tour at Pioneer Square -Take photos from the Columbia Tower viewing deck (only open during business hours; MUCH BETTER and cheaper than going up the Space Needle) -Visit Kerry Park, Seward Park, Discovery Park, and/or walk around Green Lake -Rent a canoe at UW and go exploring around the Arboretum -See SAM and the Boeing Flight Museum -Eat at any or all of the following: Paseo, La Carta de Oaxaca, La Isla, Than Brothers, Mama’s, Salumi’s, Ray’s Boathouse, Agua Verde, Thai Tom’s -Drink on Capitol Hill if you like ridiculous shenanigans (Unicorn, the Cha-Cha). Drink in Ballard if you like craft beer (the Dray, Reuben’s Brews, anywhere on Ballard Ave). Drink in the U-District to join the fratty crowds (Earl’s, Finn MacCool’s) or annoy them (Flowers, the Galway, College Inn Pub). -And of course, eat a doughnut at Top Pot and a cupcake at Cupcake Royal. Anything I missed, dear readers? Please chime in with your own tips.
Crepe de France in Pike Place. Get a Seattle-style dog from a hot dog street vendor. Try out an isolation tank at Float Seattle. Visit REI. Eat breakfast at Lola’s. Have cider and play board games at Capitol Cider. The Root Beer Store in Lynnwood. Chihuly’s Garden and Glass at Seattle Center. Central Library. Get a turkey sandwich at Bakeman’s..
