Seattle feels like San Francisco's little brother. It's got the bay, high rises, bridges, overcast weather, laid back people, culture, oh and traffic, all to a lesser extent, but also a bit more affordable. Known for Pike Place, Space Needle, and Starbucks, Seattle has many niche areas to hang out around town with many parades, festivities, and other gatherings mostly taking place in summer time. Also known for the dreary overcast weather, most people stay indoors around winter time as a local had told me. Good thing it was nice and sunny when I visited!
You will see Pike Place, Space Needle, Freemont Troll, Chihuly Garden and Glass, the Gum Wall, Pioneer Square, Kerry Park, Gas Works Park, Skyview Observatory, Discovery Park, Westpoint Lighthouse.
