I'm flying out to Seattle for an interview and I'm going to have some downtime while I'm there to do a little sightseeing. What should I be sure to check out? I've never been to the Seattle area before.
- Space Needle
- Pike Place Market
- Take the Ferry out to one of the islands
- University of Washington Huskies hoops
Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson are the only players to have two triple-doubles in the NCAA Tournament.
Depends on what you want to do.
If you are into food, Seattle has a ton of great places to eat lots of local flavors and creative chefs
Pike Market is fun to wander around sample food and walk into the stores
The downtown neighborhoods are fun to see as they have unique feels and lots of places to eat and drink
Lake union is a scenic run as you can go around the 6 mile lake and see a lot of the city
UW and Seattle U are close and you could see some college sports
The downtown is very walkable and fun to jump around into various stores
Capital Hill is hipster and trendy but another place to wander and check out
If you are able to get out you can always go for a hike out East as the mountains are that close
The ferry ride is worth the round trip to see the city
Walk or Run the pier
Lots of art studios to check out and Museums
Strip clubs are right there too
Music scene is great, lots of local small venues
Pretty much what ever you like you can find..... Seattle has a lot to offer and good luck with the interview. I work for Amazon and moved out West 1 year ago.
The Chihuly glass museum is pretty cool. Right next to the EMP music museum thingy, which is also pretty cool. All of that is near the Space Needle. Easy/short monorail ride from downtown.
Where should I go for dinner tonight? Nothing too fancy.
Where are you staying?
If you're downtown, Pike Brewing is a good option.

McCormick's Fish House & Bar
The Other Coast Cafe in Ballard (for good sandwiches)
Pasta Freska was pretty awesome when I was there a few weeks ago.
Good homemade Italian food.
Go to a local deli and have your date fake an orgasm.
Oh wait, that was When Harry Met Sally, not Sleepless in Seattle. Same difference.
"Those fans are in for a world of hurt...they've never gone up against a premium message board fan base like ours."-Vim
Starbucks if you can find one.
Lots of things! PM me!
Off the top of my head:
- The Pike Place Market
- Avoid the needle unless you can expense it.
- If you're here for a few days, take a ferry to Bainbridge
- Spending a day downtown is never a bad idea.
- If you're here to ski, head out to Steven's pass
- Lots of bars. If you're young (< 35) check out Belltown or Ballard. If you're under 30, check out Capitol Hill. If you're above these ranges, hit up the East Side.
- Lots of food. Hit up a Tom Douglas restaurant in Belltown. He's our pride and joy.
- Get Sushi and Seafood while you're here. Way better than back in the mitten.
There is like 100 food options and overall good things to see and do around 1st Ave and Pike's Market... You can just hit places along the Piers or the million little places in each side street. Seattle has a ton of unique experiences, from Bellevue or Woodinville, all the way to island hoping. I will say Seattle kicks way more ass in the summer, with all the water and it being a good pedestrian city.
Palace Kitchen. Did the same thing when I had an interview there earler this year.
I'm staying at the Bellevue Westin and I can expense most entertainment. I'm 22 if that helps at all.

Drink coffee, Drink coffee, Drink coffee, Drink coffee, Drink coffee, Drink coffee.
You will be amazed at the number of coffee houses!
Also, you can now smoke pot in Seattle with impunity.
More importantly, who is hiring, for what?
Question authority. Power to the people
Take my Aunt on a romantic date. I'd suggest Deception Pass. Make sure she's sloppy drunk and then encourage her to take the leap.
If you have the time, i found the tour of the Boeing factory an eye opener, amazing seeing the 747 assembly line.
Note the molded Indian heads, walruses, etc. that are on the capitals of columns on the old buildings on Pioneer Square and downtown.
Blue Martini in Bellevue is close to you and is almost always packed... John Howie Steakhouse, Wild Ginger and El Gaucho, while non being that cheap, aren't blacktie or anything, and all of their foods rock out
Bellevue is not Seattle.
Try Daniels's Broiler in downtown Seattle (or a few of the other mentioned options). I don't know Bellevue quite as well as Seattle, but everything is within walking distance to the Westin.
Go a few blocks S of downtown to the Int'l District and have a drink with her.
Just avoid those Japanese steakhouses and watch her hands.
