My Seattle & Vancouver adventure has come to an end and I’m so glad I chose to pursue this trip with a few close friends! Both of the destinations had so much character and it was hard to fully absorb all that each place had to offer. Where do I even begin…
After spending only 1.5 days in Seattle, my curiosity of the city turned into admiration pretty quickly. I was amazed to see such a charming city be surrounded by endless green. The area had a great mixture of different cultures, nature, and lifestyles. As a person who loves food and brunch, there were also many different options and places to choose from. The city itself, seems like a booming scene that will continue to attract people of all ages and backgrounds and I am curious to see how the city will flourish over the next few years.
Here is a list of the places we went to & what I thought of them!
Obbar Pocha (Korean Restaurant)
- My friend got a soup that came in a Korean military styled set and It was actually pretty cool!
- The rice burger was also pretty good!
- There was a lot of rice for each bun, so I was completely filled!
Tilikum Place Cafe (Brunch)
- I’ve never had baked egg before, BUT I will definitely have more now!! haha
- The baked egg at Tilikum was amazing and I cannot describe how smooth it was!
- The flavors were light, however it had a perfect balance with the dish overall!
Space Needle (Attraction)
- This was the second time I’ve ever been to the space needle, and both times, it was of course, cloudy. haha.
- Truthfully, it is always spectacular to have a view of a city from above, however with both times being cloudy and grey, I am not too sure if I enjoyed this.
- If you want a breathtaking view of the city/skyline, go to kerry park at night, or during the day if you please! I will be mentioning this place later on!
Chihuly Glass & Garden (Attraction)
- This attraction was right next to the space needle & it was beautiful!
- The glass works seemed almost impossible and it took magnificent to a whole new level!
- The attraction was filled with playful and elegant shapes as well as vibrant colors.
Pike Place (Public Market/Attraction)
- I’ve been to plenty of different public markets before, however I think Pike Place definitely took the lead!
- From the fresh foods to the local artisans, everything was very well put together, except for the crowds (to be expected, cause it’s so amazing there! haha)
- The people there were also very open and the food was on point!
- Lastly, I’d like to mention how inexpensive the flowers were & how it was pretty cool to enter into the first Starbucks!
Gum Wall (Attraction)
- It smelled of and was literally a wall of gum. Actually it was an alley of gum.
- Colorful but kinda nasty. haha
Shiro’s Sushi (Restaurant)
- I actually did not know of this place, however luckily one of my friends booked a reservation for dinner ahead of time!
- It was a simple, but tasteful shop and our waiter gave us his realistic opinions and recommendations.
- It was the most I’ve ever spent on sushi and every penny was worth it! I’d recommend the Premium Sushi Omakase.
Kerry Park (Skyline View)
- To end the day, we went to Kerry Park to see a Skyline View of Seattle.
- It was definitely worth going, and honestly, I enjoyed this more than the space needle!
- Even though my camera couldn’t do the view justice, I will never forget the amazing sights at night!
Overall, I think Seattle was amazing and I cannot wait to go back! The food, people, and atmosphere were all inviting. I think i gained a lot of weight just going to this one city, however the adventures continue on in Vancouver!
I shall talk about Vancouver on my next post since this one was so long!
Stepping away from reality allowed me to breathe.
