    Favorite thing: This really depends on your preference. If you like tourist sites, obviously check out the Pike Place Market to start and there's a several department stores all over downtown if you like to shop. There's a coffee shops and a homeless person on every block so be prepared to be overwhelmed if you are from the east coast.

    Fondest memory: Rented a car to go outside of Seattle and checked out Snoqualmie Falls (sight of 'Twin Peaks' lodge). To be honest, I wouldn't want to live in Seattle but outskirts looked absolutely beautiful and if you like nature stuff, you'll probably want to live here.

    Seattle Skyline

    by annk Updated Feb 6, 2005

    Favorite thing: A very attractive city with many new skyscrapers and condominium towers. Even more delightful with a partial blue sky when it's not raining. At least half of the buildings must have wonderful views of Puget Sound.

    Favorite thing: I had glorious weather for most of my stay in Seattle. The day I took the 'Water Taxi' across Elliott Bay from Pier 55, the views of the city skyline were wonderful. Here are a couple of photos.

    Favorite thing: I stopped to look at what I thought was a glove on the sidewalk, but it's really a brass glove embedded in cement!

    Favorite thing: Walk around the city, hang out on a bench, drink a coffee outside, watch people, talk to people. Seattle has a real city feel, but it is pretty laid back.

    Favorite thing: We were wandering around the streets and enjoying the many malls and shops. We came upon this contest where they were creating images in sand - yes, sand sculpture!
