"A Stopover in Seattle" Seattle by annk

Seattle Travel Guide: 3,209 reviews and 7,970 photos

We flew into Seattle en route to our trip to Victoria, B.C. Spent about 1/2 day on the way up and a full day on the way back. Certainly not enough time to see all the sights but we did get a delightful taste of this city surrounded by water.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A vibrant city surrounded by water & mountains
  • Cons:It rains a lot

    I love your page and... Seattle - the most beautiful of cities I visited in the USA (Urszula says about San Francisco and San Diego). Thanks a lot for sharing. I didn't find Community Garden, where was it?

    Did ya miss the great beer scene in Seattle, Ann? At least you saw the sun. I did too and fell in love with this funky town.

    I would have grumbled if this page did not include the fish market. . .Brava, dear Ann! (here's to vaclava, wherever she might be. . .)

    Extremely touristy. I preferred Ray's Boat House. It's more authentic NW and just nicer overall.
