This is another outdoor flagship location...maybe niche, expensive fly fisherman hangout. However, these guys have been making clothing for serious outdoor explorers since the Klondike gold rush of 1892!

While we are focusing on Seattle startups...one has to include the coffee giant, Starbucks. So get a photo of the lines waiting to experience the first Starbucks at Pike Market...but experience the best coffees in the world at the Reserve. Also it is a bit of a Willy Wonka factory for roasting!

Reopened in Feb. 2020 after a 2 year remodel...sublime museum just the right size to be awed but not overwhelmed. Plus, Volunteer Park is such a gorgeous setting. Linger in the surrounding residential neighborhood, North Capitol Hill...Seattle's old school wealth.

An amazing architectural gem, so modern and unique...it is hard to describe. Each floor is different, yet it all works. Given world recognition when built in 2004. Dutch architect, Rem Koolhaus built a very cool house.

Years ago, the zoo gave up enclosed structures and bars separating the animals from visitors. Now the experience is a green meander from exhibit to exhibit. World class zoo! Bonus...outdoor summer concerts. Our personal fav is Portland's Pink Martini, seen them multiple times there!

Speak Easy Cocktail bars
Ok, first you need to find this place not too far from Pike Place Market... SO hidden, no tourist will be in attendance. Why search in a scary alley in Belltown for a drink....the prohibition cocktails and subterranean ambience is so worth it.

A sweet cocktail bar in Capitol Hill! You notice people going over to an old rotary phone on the wall next to a vault door? They end their call with the door opening and then disappearing? The secret room!

Neighborhoods
Fun to be in the know for the up and coming neighborhoods in a city. Columbia City, like popular Ballard was a distinct city when Seattle was a young pup. Brick retail districts filled the streets at the turn of the Century. Now they are inhabited by upstart businesses. La Medusa, Italian restaurant is worth the journey. Visit Lake Washington and Seward Park after!

Hipsters abound on these Cap Hill streets just up from Downtown across the freeway. Best restaurants, bars, boutiques per square mile in the City...that's why

Off the grid Georgetown is between the airport and downtown...in an industrial section of the city. However one small four block stretch is THE most bohemian area of Seattle. Reality is all the artists were priced out of Capitol Hill. Find the next Pearl Jam here. (Worth a visit if going to The Museum of Flight or have an hour to kill before a flight home.

Six blocks of trendy eateries, bars and boutiques...on arguably the cutest streets in Seattle. A 10 minute Uber ride from our house. Go at happy hour or evening...most places not open earlier.

One mile from our Airbnb, you can get on Lake Union and kayak amongst the houseboats, seaplanes and sailboats. All this with an incredible view of Downtown and surrounding hill communities. We hosted our families for this adventure on our own wedding weekend!

This 40 minute excursion up the Interstate toward the mountains, could be under the "Sightseeing" category. but a mile hike to the base of the falls is now an activity! The lodge is the opening credits to TV show Twin Peaks...so one can check off a number of tourist must see's here.

Seattle classic since 1952, it even burnt to the pier in 1987 and the public demanded they rebuild. Unobstructed west views to the Olympics, must view at sunset. The seafood may actually be second to the view, but it is hard to mess up a wild caught Alaska salmon.

After the fun 10 minute Water Taxi from Pier 50 Downtown to West Seattle...Marination is right next to the pier. Casual place serving Hawaiian/Korean street food while sitting on picnic tables looking directly back at the Seattle skyline. If you are short on time for a ferry to Bainbridge, this is a great alternative.

Sweet patio overlooking Pike Place Market and water. Entrance is on Post Alley with only it's signature door giving a clue what is inside. Entertainment comes with the Italian fare many nights. A bit of dinner and cabaret! Seattle classic, since I have been in town for 35 years.
