Seattle. Guide.

Seattle is one of my favourite cities in the US, it’s friendly, it’s liberal, there’s amazing coffee and it has the great outdoors all within a few minutes drive.  Here’s a list of a few of the places that I like to go to and also those from some of my friends.

I also very much intend this to be a living guide, so if you’ve got any suggestions, additions, feedback, leave a comment, tweet, or write on the Facebook page.  It’s not exhaustive by any means!
