Traveling at night affords you one comfort, to be able to start a new day in a new place. It creates vigor and excitement around a destination. After arriving in Seattle, I was exhausted. None-the-less, rather than reaching for a cab, I opted for the subway to the city. The Link Light Rail takes you into the city. I got off at Westlake Station and then caught an Uber from there to the hotel.
The next morning I headed over to the Space Needle to take in a few pictures. I opted to skip going into the site since I had other plans. I did, however, visit the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit in the area. From there, I walked to Kerry Park. In my opinion, it has the best views of Seattle. And it's free!
After walking ten miles and building an appetite, I felt the only thing that could satisfy me was Ivars. I called an Uber and headed over there. I loaded up fish and chips before heading back to touring. To ease the pain on my legs, I rented a Jump bike and cruised through the city. Places I visited were Occidental Square and the Waterfall Garden Park. After returning the bike, I stopped into Top Pot for donuts and coffee.
Saturday mornings in Seattle is a precursor for the Pike Place Market. Lowell's Restaurant is your ideal place for breakfast. Take your meal upstairs to have breakfast with a view. Afterward, take a stroll through the market as it has a lot to offer. Head over to the fish market and try your luck in catching an Alaskan Halibut. You can buy artisan gifts and other items that would serve as a reminder of your trip in the future.
After the market, I caught a cab to Freemont. The main reason for the visit was to check out Gasworks Park. I climbed Kite hill and then headed over to the Freemont Troll. After a few pics, I stopped at the Freemont Brewing company to taste some local beer. They have a great environment and worth a visit.
Seattle's number one brunch spot has to be Biscuit B*tch. They are definitely worth the visit. After a great meal, I had an even better day. I went to the Museum of Flight. We all know how I am with airplanes, needless to say, I left when it closed.
I returned to the city to do one last bit of touring. I went to the Amazon Go store and had my mind blown. The technology used to orchestrate that store is very impressive. I then had dinner at a Seattle staple, Dicks Drive-In. These burgers are to die for, and the price fits in with every budget. I had a wonderful time in Seattle, and I can't wait to return.
