Seattle It's worth your time getting to know Seattle


Pike Place Market – Whether I find delis, cheesemakers, fresh fruits, bakeries, chowder shops or fish stores, I love nibbling my way from one end of this popular market to the other.


Capitol Hill – With local bars on practically every block, this neighbourhood is hotspot central. Try the speakeasy-style Knee High Stocking Co. or mingle with locals at Canon and dip into their collection of whisky.


Ballard Kayak’s SUP rentals – Seattle’s abundance of waterfront locations offers you plenty of ways to make a splash. Hire a stand-up paddleboard to enjoy some fun in the sun at Golden Gardens Park.
