Where Marijuana is legal. Home to the biggest Seahawks fans.
But beware of these 11 things NOT to do there!
1. Don’t Feed the Seagulls!
When the gull-feeding tourist leaves, the Seattelites are left behind to be harassed and their cars pooped on.
They see them as rats with wings.
2. Don’t Wear Safari Gear.
Apparently Seattelites are sick of seeing middle-aged tourists wearing floppy, khaki sun hats and act like sunlight is a toxin? Seinfeld put it best when he said; Today was a Classic Seattle day. It didn’t rain. It didn’t NOT rain.” It’s Green Lake, it’s not the Congo.
3. Don’t pay to go up the Space Needle.
The Space Needle is for suckers. With an addmission fee of $14, any true Seattleite knows that the Smith Tower – a local best-kept secret — costs half as much and has an equally amazing view of downtown Seattle.
And you also cut out most of the other tourists saying ooh I can see Canada! (which you can’t)
4. Don’t try and find the view from Frasier’s Apartment!
try to find the view from Frasier’s apartment. Hint: It doesn’t exist.
5. Don’t be seduced by a tossed fish.
The Pike Place Fish Guys have made a big business of throwing fish and it looks fun.
But Pike place can be totally crowded on the weekends.
6. Don’t go to Starbucks
There are over a thousand coffee shops in Seattle, With a coffee shop around every corner, an Americano is always at your fingers — but Cafe Allegro, Seattle’s first coffee shop, has one of the best. Also try Cafe Lladro, Milstead, and Stumptown.
7. Don’t Skip Brunch
Check out Portage Bay Cafe – a Seattleite brunch haven, known for its organic ingredients and delicious American fare.
8. Don’t forget to wear socks!
In Spain and many other places in Europe wearing socks with your sandals is a total tourist move. But in Seattle it’s more like the norm.
9. Don’t Avoid ice cream.
Seattle ice cream makers offer up all kinds of exotic flavors for foodies: lavender, beet, bacon, squid ink, mashed potato… Check out Molly Moon’s and Procopio Gelateria for some crazy flavours!
10. Don’t forget to research your beaches.
There are nude beaches, gay beaches, kid beaches, illegal dog beaches. The beach at Denny-Blaine, for example, is a lesbian-hipster hangout once nicknamed Dykiki.
11. Don’t forget a hot dog!
Yes, a hot dog. Every New Yorker knows a pizza slice is the best way to end a night on the town. But every Seattleite knows a night isn’t complete without a stop by the local hotdog cart. For a true Seattle experience, make sure to pack on the cream cheese.
