Last month, I flew to Seattle to spend Fourth of July weekend with two of my favorite people. As a complete newbie to the Pacific Northwest, I was eager to breathe in all the outdoorsy exhalations the Emerald City had to offer (and of course, consume as much food as possible).
Is it just me or is Seattle having a cultural moment? Between watching The Killing and reading Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, I’m beginning to feel well-versed in the city’s neighborhoods and landmarks. Seattle in the summertime is beautiful with plenty of attractions to fill a long weekend away. Not to mention the hills! I don’t think I’ve ever experienced that much inner thigh pain.
Discovery Park (Magnolia)
Seattle’s largest public park off the Puget Sound contains almost 12 miles of trails. It’s a great place to spend an afternoon in nature with beautiful water views and plenty of friendly Seattleites full of casual pleasantries.
All in all, a fabulous trip!
