|FRESH FOOD AND COFFEE: THE ESSENCE OF SEATTLE|
In total we were in Seattle for only 2 days (and even that is stretching it a little). So it was a whirlwind of a visit, but I really loved Seattle. I would even venture to say it was my favorite city on that trip. The balance was good: city but not too much - there are lots of open areas and parks, people are quite laid-back and good food (and coffee) is important to them, and it's very easy to navigate the city.
I loved the colors of the Public Market and was shocked by the giant lobster tails (and I have big hands!), walked past the original Starbucks, enjoyed shopping the sales a little and lazing around in the park at the foot of the Space Needle.
