#LPInstawalk: Seattle edition


It's hard to define what makes a place 'cool', but whatever it is, Seattle has it in abundance. Beer-lovers find plenty to keep them occupied—as do foodies—and there are plenty of outdoor adventures right on the city's doorstep. We’re offering ten lucky Instagrammers the chance to join Lonely Planet expert Valerie Stimac (@Valerie_Valise) and talented Instagrammer Victoria Wright (@Veekster) on a bespoke tour of Seattle on Sunday 12th April. We’ll share some of our insider tips on where to go and what to see in Seattle, as well as pro advice on Instagramming your travels.
