I don’t live in Seattle but shop there regularly. I use this website to find recommendations for restaurants from local people.

You should do the Ride the Ducks tour…it’s a little cheesy but you seriously get to see a ton of the Seattle high points.  Pikes Place Market, Pioneer Square, Space Needle, the stadiums, waterfront, etc.  It’s a land and water tour so you drive through the city and then the vehicle goes into Lake Union and you get to see the city from the water.  I always take people visiting me on it and they love it.

I’d also take the time to walk around Pikes Place…there’s also a double decker bus that you can hop on and off whenever you want at various hot spots.

There’s a lot of really cool laid back restaurants in the Capitol Hill, Queen Anne and Ballard neighborhoods…I’d just visit yelp.com and plug in those neighborhoods and look for ones with good reviews.

Weather is supposed to be nice this weekend, have fun!

I think the Pacific Science Center and the Aquarium are worth checking out.  You should also go to Honore Artisian Bakery and try a macaron.

If you are staying at the Hyatt, you are one block from Pacific Place, which is the mall and the rest of the shopping area.  Go a few blocks down you will hit Pike’s Place, walk further and you will hit the Pier and the Acquarium.

In other words, you are in a place to get around in DT Seattle.  You can use your car to drive to the Seattle Center and see their Pacific Science Exhibit or take the monorail where you can catch at Westlake Center that’s only a few blocks from the hotel.

Have fun!  it’s rainy still…with burst of sunshine. 🙂

If you check ths:

– Go to Le Panier on Pike Place (across from the Pike Place Market). Amazing French bakery with fantastic Pain au Chocolat and AMAZING mochas. The Baguettes are also amazing.

– Right by there, there is a Beechers cheese. They make the BEST macarooni and cheese in the world. Well worth buying it and sharing it. The Marachi Mac and Cheese is also AMAZING.

– The zoo in Seattle is amazing. Well worth the journey out to it. You just have to catch one bus and it is about a 15 minute bus ride. As someone else said, the Aquarium is also very good.

– Get lots and lots of Seafood. If you want a nicer restaruant one night, I highly recommend the Pink Door, it is nestled in an alley of the Pike Place Market.

– On Broadway (a 5 min bus ride from downtown), there are lots of great place to eat. A few blocks from it is B & O Espresso which has so many amazing desserts. Well worth the hike up! I recommend the Poire Rouge or anything chocolate. Mmm!
