Elizabeth's Travel Tips for Seattle

What are the best places to eat and drink in Seattle?

How can you just pick one restaurant in Seattle. First of all, you can't get a bad cup of coffee. We like to start the day at Macrina Bakery or Top Pot Doughnuts downtown to fuel up for the day. Our favorite lunch is Salumi in Pioneer Square for the most delicious and unique cured meat sandwiches. For dinner, we head to Ivar's Fish Bar down by Elliott Bay, when the sun goes down, you get an amazing sunset view with the Olympic Mountains.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Seattle?

The Klondike Gold Rush museum in Pioneer Square is free. They have exhibits for adults and kids that give you a first hand experience of what it would have been like to leave Seattle on a prospecting trip!

Alannah's Travel Tips for Seattle

What is your best overall travel tip for Seattle?

Pike Place Market is a MUST! From the food shops (Piroshky Piroshky proved to be a personal favorite), to the great brunch spots (Bacco Cafe), to the original Starbucks, to the ocean views, and the wonderful little bars (Zig Zag Cafe), it’s truly a wonderful little piece of Seattle you cannot miss!

Miranda's Travel Tips for Seattle

What is your best overall travel tip for Seattle?

Wear good walking shoes and explore as much as possible by foot! Walking is the best way to see and FEEL the vibe of a city; and in Seattle there are so many amazing restaurants and cocktail bars, you won't feel so guilty about enjoying them after you've spent the whole day exploring the city on foot!

Consuelo's Travel Tips for Seattle

What is your best overall travel tip for Seattle?

At Alki beach- we discovered Lime cars and bikes! Seattle is highly walkable, but if you have more than a few days and want to explore a little further afield, sometimes a car makes sense! Avoid the expense of a rental car and parking- grab a lime when you need it (they are everywhere!), drive to your next stop, park it and go! Wander on and grab another wherever you ramble next!
