Hello there! Today, I’m going to be talking about my favorite spots in Seattle right now. Since I’ve been so fortunate to be in the city a lot lately, I figured I would take advantage of this opportunity and share some of my favorite places with you all!
Okay first of all, I absolutely love the rain, which is one of the reasons why I moved up to the pnw in the first place. So rainy days in Seattle are a different kind of beautiful. It’s basically like if you wanted to visualize lo-fi music.
BUT, I will say, that a hot summer day in Seattle is indescribable. All the washingtonians come out from hiding, throw on a nice dress or shorts, and bask in the sun for hours on end. I am definitely one of these people.
On my last trip in to the city, I tried Seatown Seabar for the first time. And while I’m not a big seafood person, the views and cocktails alone were enough to get Kolani & I to lounge out there for a solid hour or so.
After drinks, we roamed around the nooks and crannies of downtown Seattle, featuring charming alleyways and other shops and bars. I didn’t take any photos of these areas, but you can take a peek at them in my Seattle Vlogs, which I’ll link down below!
One of our absolute favorite spots ever to go and grab a drink on a gorgeous summer day is the rooftop bar at the Hardrock cafe, just a couple blocks up from Pike Place Market.
The views are obviously incredible, as you’re able to oversee some of the best parts of Seattle; Pike Place, skyscrapers, and you’ll be able to see the ferry drift back and forth every so often.
These two bars, (especially the hard rock cafe roof top bar) are probably my favorite spots that are closest to Pike Place. They’re located right in the heart of Seattle, which is perfect if you’re looking for a touristy experience. You’re getting incredible views, and great priced drinks, that is if you’re visiting during happy hour.
Just to the left of the market, you’ll find the infamous (and slightly disgusting) bubble gum wall of Seattle. I’m slightly disappointed I haven’t had my photo taken for instagram here, because it’s such a great photo op and background. This particular little area peaks my interest a lot as well, since there a couple coffee shops that are highly recommended, but I have yet to try. I think since I’ve been a barista, I’ve become a slight coffee snob, but who’s complaining? I think on my next trip to Seattle, I just might have to explore this area more, and create a whole new blog post about this particular area.
I took my friend Yari to the Museum of Pop Culture when she was visiting me from Belgium. I hadn’t been to the museum since the first time I had ever been to Seattle, which was when I was 15. It was even cooler than I remembered, and it was really like I was seeing it for the first time.
The Museum of Pop Culture is an absolute must for anyone, families, first timers, and even to revisit, like I did. It’s such a fun, overall experience, and I feel like each person who leaves the building learns something new, with all the niches that are presented in the museum. That’s also another reason why it’s great to visit, because there is something for everyone there. You have music, film, horror, scifi, and everything else in between.
You’ll immerse yourself into the great, classic rock sounds of Seattle, exploring a personal experience with infamous legends, like Jimi Hendrix, as his voice melts over the sound system from past interviews.
That’s gonna do it for today’s blog post! Don’t forget to follow me on instagram @chlos.call for live stories & other goodies!
