Pike Place Market

Market in Seattle

5 Must Do's: 1. The view from the Market Front: On a clear day you can see Mt. Rainier to the south and the Olympic Mountains to the west. 2. Beecher's Handmade Cheese 3. Cinnamon Works: Get the chocolate chip cookie! 4. Gum Wall: Don't eat the art... unless you want to informally saliva swap with all of Seattle.

Chihuly Garden & Glass

Museum in Seattle

Dale Chihuly's exhibit in Seattle is a floral feast of the most delicate kind with fluorescent forests, floating flowers, and a botanical garden of other worldly designs made almost entirely out of glass. It takes about 45 minutes to work your way through the exhibit, which ends in an outdoor garden of Chihuly's magical creations sitting in the shadow of the Space Needle.

Kerry Park

Park in Seattle

Kerry Park offers sweeping views of downtown and the Puget Sound, making it the best insta-worthy spot to capture Seattle's Space Needle and the skyline below.

Seattle Coffee Works

Cafe in Seattle

This local chain has four different locations, each bearing the name of its neighborhood. My favorite is Capitol Coffee Works. A sleek, modern interior with large windows, knowledgable staff, and yummy baked goods (try the chocolate cookie sandwich) make this spot a must visit.

Melrose Market

Market in Seattle

A one stop shop - Melrose Market has everything you could dream of in one place. There's a local meat/cheese/produce purveyor, a delicious coffee shop, artisan sandwiches, an adorable restaurant just north of casual, and shops selling gifts and home goods.
