See Seattle, WA

Bask in the Afternoon Rain

Seattle, Washington, Oregon too for that matter, experiences rain 280 days out of the year. At times, that is an exaggeration but not far from it. You'll more often than not be caught in the rain during the rainy season; plan wisely.

Points of Interest in Seattle

Pike Place closing time

Every city has fascinating, must-see points of interest. Some known lesser than others. Seattle is, of course, most famous for its Pike Place Market which certainly is on the map if you come from afar. Living in Portland, we decided not to go during the hustle and bustle of the market at high noon. Crowded during any part of the day.

The Seattle Great Ferris Wheel is but a skip and a hop away from Pike Place. On Pier 57, also known as Miner's Landing, this place features many restaurants indoors and shops. I personally only went to the restaurants where I got a big slice of pizza. Yum!
