seattle sights.

Seattle is such a gorgeous city, I loved exploring different neighborhoods (Capitol Hill and Belltown were my favorites). There are so many great things to do and see in the city. If you visit, don't miss these spots:
We walked to Kerry Park on our first night (I won't lie, it was exhausting...Seattle is HILLY) but the ammmmazing view was totally worth it. If you're planning a visit, consider traveling in July. The weather was GORGEOUS during our trip - blue skies, warm and sunny everyday.

I know it's touristy but I really love Pike Place Market. we visited early in the morning, just as the shops opened (on a weekday) and it wasn't very crowded. it was the perfect time to take it all in, without being run over by other visitors. I love the concept of a year-round city farmer's market and I've never been to one this large and historic. We visited the market a few times during our trip and it was fun to see it come alive with tourists and vendors (and yes, guys throwing fish!) We also spotted the nearby, "original" Starbucks but opted not to wait in the long line. 
Another fun spot is the market theater gum wall. It's a local landmark and it sort of reminds me of the Paris love-locks...but a little tackier!
