Some of the fun that Seattle offers Sep 30, 2011
Bring your umbrella, your appetite, and get ready to drink tons of coffee!!
My top places in Seattle
The Crab Pot has amazing seafood and has even been featured on the travel channel. It is a little bit on the expensive side (I think we paid about $20 a person). There is an assortment of seafood, sausage and potatoes mixed up in a huge pot and dumped out on the table. You won't regret it if you love seafood.
The ultimate nachos are located at a small mexican restaurant near the space needle called Baracudas.
Go to the original Starbucks. The workers are very friendly and let you taste several different samples including coffee that is only offered at this store.

The space needle is a must do in Seattle. I didn't end up going up in it but enjoyed the view from my hotel room as well as up close to it. The people who did go in it said the views of Seattle are amazing.
The Fremont Troll-
This is a Seattle favorite. There is a giant troll statue located under the Aurora bridge. It really makes for fun pictures to show your friends and family. The troll has made an appearance in the movie "Ten Things I Hate About You." The best thing about the Troll is that he is free to visit!
Baseball lovers... go visit Safeco Field. Even if you aren't a fan of the Mariners you will truly appreciate their stadium. There is so many unique aspects of this place...make sure to take the tour. You get to see behind the scenes of the Mariners. I went to the first tour of the day and they took us onto the field and many of the players were on the field.

Bus, taxi and rain Sep 01, 2011
Seattle is a wonderful area and once your in the area there can be a lot to do, however, make extra time for busses because they aren't always on time.
My last trip to Seattle, my friend got so fed up with waiting that she demanded we take cabs most of the time which is pretty expensive if you don't pick the right company and depending on how they charge, our best luck was with orange and yellow cabs.
Hopefully obvious but I'd bring an umbrella if your not used to rain, I personally like walking in the downpour but it's not for everyone.
