    Favorite thing: Wander the streets of downtown. There are alot of small shops with wonderful things to buy. Watch out for the tourist stores....unless you want nicknacks.

    Fondest memory: Going to the Pike Place Market and people watching, lots of activity. Great place to get good food. If you decide to walk the small shops and your hungry just follow your nose to the little cafe that sells the best cinnamon rolls in the world.

  • The best thing about Seattle...

    by Randyo2 Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: The best thing about Seattle is the areas around it. Although I love the city, I love everything around it much better. The Cascades are wonderful and beautiful and so are the Olympics. The San Juan Islands are breathtaking! There are so many places in every direction and they are all my favorites.

    Fondest memory: In the city itself, I actually like Pike's Market. The secret is to go early in the morning when not many people are there. You can do some good shopping (a little expensive) and some good people watching. After a trip there, try having lunch in Pioneer Square. Very good little mom and pop restaurants there!!

    Favorite thing: See fish thrown through the air, drink the coffee by day and the microbrewed beer by night -- does life get much better?

    Fondest memory: Coffee!! Yes, it is the home of Starbuck's but try Seattle's Best Coffee (really, that's the name of this chain!).

    Favorite thing: Farmers Market. The variety of fresh food shops and outlets with emphasis on seafood and fruit and veges. You can easily spend half a day just wandering around, interspersed with coffee breaks (to replenish from the rain).

    by kiwi25 Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Go to the Pike Place Market!!!
    It is open every day and is full of fresh flowers, fruit and veges, fish and heaps of local crafts.
    You can spend a long time just wandering around watching people and checking out all the stalls.

    Fondest memory: Finding a NZ/Australia store. It was GREAT!!!
    Especially when you are from NZ because they have lots of candy etc from home.

    by wilson99 Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: go to the Pikes Place Market. A trip to Seattle without going here would be incomplete. A bit touristy, but I recommend getting a cup of coffee (you can find one anywhere) and going to the market early in the morning to see the local fish markets sell there fare. (Note: Don't be alarmed if you suddenly find a salmon hurling at wharp speed towards your mug. It's all part of the charm that makes the Market unique.)

    Fondest memory: seeing some of the local bands jam at the many clubs located throughout the city. You can see everything from grunge rock to jazz to killer rasta tunes.

    by ckb7063 Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Visit Pike Place Market, ride up the Space Needle, take a ferry ride anywhere but if time allows through the San Juan Islands...Friday Harbor is a good start. Eat at any Anthony's HomePort Restaurants or FX McRory's.

    Fondest memory: The trees, mountains, & water everywhere!

    Favorite thing: Trek through Pike's Market. The produce, fresh fish and meat selection are mind-boggling. The surrounding area has wonderful bistros as well as all types of gourmet & fine dining experiences. Check out the Seattle Glassworks and fine art galleries. Seattle has an extraordinary array of fine Asian art galleries. Don't miss the Space Needle.

    Fondest memory: With the proximity of the majestic Mount Rainier one can take an unforgettable day trip to Snoqualamie Falls. Make reservations at the lodge and restaurant for a unique dining experience. The grandeur of Mount Rainier is breath-taking.
