  • 3. Bruce Lee Memorial

    This was a great thing to do on my last day in Seattle as I'm a huge fan of Bruce Lee. Their gravesite is in Lake View Cemetery on the Capitol Hill area which is probably not an area that people...

  • 6. Jimi Hendrix Memorial

    Jimi Hendrix, the 60's music legend, has legions of fans to this day. I can't say I was a Hendrix fan and didn't like the culture he was involved in, but I appreciated his talent and some of the...

  • 11. Discovery Park

    Seattle has a few parks that are fairly good sized, and Discovery Park is one of them. This park is large enough to contain a number of different activities and attractions. I have written a few...

  • 13. Space Needle

    Certainly, it is an office building and therefore isn't really anything you would want to put onto a "Things to Do" list, but if you happen to be in the area of the Seattle Center (the facility that...

  • 14. Alki Point

    The City of Seattle can be seen at Alki Point. You just have to drive to Alki Point and you will find out that you can have the best view of the Space Needle, the buildings of Seattle, the...

    From time to time, posted in the Seattle Travel Forum, there are questions about visiting Mount Saint Helens National Volcanic Monument. Usually, these are people who would like to do this trip as a...

  • 17. Bellingham

    Too far away from Seattle to really be considered part of the same urban area, and yet close enough that people make the trip between the two regularly anyway, Bellingham is the heart of a much...

  • 18. Campus (various)

    While it is still very much an urban university campus, the University of Washington Seattle campus (there are locations in Bothell and Tacoma, as well as many smaller locations in the state) just...
