2 Days in Seattle

This weekend I was invited, thanks to a Klout Perk, to spend 2 days in Seattle. During these 2 days, we are invited to visit the city and explore hidden gems and hopefully tweet about it while we are down there with the hashtag #2DaysInSeattle.

I haven’t been to Seattle in about 3 years. Yeah I know it’s very close for us here in Vancouver and I am looking forward to exploring the city a little bit more. How much can I do in 2 days? I’m not 100% sure. If you had just 2 days in Seattle what would you do? What restaurants should I try? What local hot spots is a must see?

I’ll admit I will be going up the Space Needle this time around as I’ve never done that before. I have done the underground city tour before as well and of course I will be revisiting Pike’s Place Market. I’m also thinking of taking either a dinner boat cruise or just a regular boat cruise.

I’ve very excited about the opportunity and hopefully everyone will enjoy my tweets (internet hotspots permitting) as well as a post, or two afterwards.

  1. have fun! i have only been to seattle once but loved it. rain schmain it’s still a great town. don’t forget to try top pot donuts. best donut you’ll ever eat.

  2. One of the most fascinating architectural buildings inside and outside is the Seattle Central Library. It’s by far one of the most interesting buildings on the West Coast of North America. I guess it goes without saying to check out the Pikes Market.

  3. There’s a big bookstore down in Pioneer Square… Elliot Bay Bookstore I think? BEST. BOOKSTORE. EVER.

    The library is also pretty awesome in a post-modern kind of way. Around the Space Needle, don’t miss the Science Fiction Museum and the Experience Music Museum (Or something like that). It’s all in the same spot anyway.

    What else what else… Capitol Hill is a fun spot with pubs and bars, kind of like Main. If you like Gothic architecture, go to the campus of the University of Washington and check out their library. It’s beautiful.

    Along 1st, just above Pike Place Market, there’s Belltown. Pretty much like Seattle’s version of Yaletown. Ton of nifty little gastropubs and specialized bars.

    If you enjoy art, the Museum has a pretty decent collection, especially in modern and contemporary. They have a branch out in a big park near Capitol Hill that holds the Asian collection, if you like that kind of thing.
