Seattle Attractions from Pike Place Market to Snoqualmie Falls.
Before our trip, the only things I knew about Seattle were Kurt Cobain, coffee, and the movie Singles (we visited a few locations, by the way). If you do a quick search online, you’ll find most of the major tourist attractions, like Fremont Troll, and of course, Pike Place Market.
Sadly, they weren’t throwing fish when I was there on Sunday afternoon.
Underneath, the famous, newly-cleaned gum wall. Which already looks pretty gummy again.
Across the street, the Original Starbucks – with a serious line…
…not as major as the one to get on/off Vashon Island’s ferry, though!
We didn’t really get to fully explore this cute island because we were stressed we wouldn’t make it off.
More local flavor at Dockside Cannabis, aka my first marijuana store visit. I’ve always wanted to blog about one in LA, but it’s not legal there.
We didn’t buy any but I picked their very knowledgeable budtender’s brains about the menu, and what would be good for someone with a history of eating disorders like myself.
Over in Capitol Hill, The Elliott Bay Bookstore was packed with folks. Such a great store.
Speaking of books, our college friend Abby works at The Seattle Public Library – we were lucky enough to get a private tour.
A truly stunning building, with so much to look at…
…all the way to the tippy top!
Also got some great views at Snoqualmie Falls (a 45 minute drive from the city)…
…and of course, from the top of the Space Needle.
Abe braved the rain and took all the photos. We also got our photo taken with Santa for free!
Heading back to LA today, but I will have a few more future posts about The Emerald City – and a video for my YouTube Channel!
