Welp. It has been a full two months since I moved to Seattle, which is still a bit hard for me to wrap my head around. For so long, moving to Seattle was a goal, a dream, but always felt just out of grasp. When I visited Seattle for the first time almost three years ago, I knew it was a place that I could live and wanted to live. I had recently graduated from college and was in full job search mode. The minute I got back from my trip, I turned the whole focus of my search to Seattle. Obviously at the time, a move to Seattle was not in the cards. So instead I moved to sweet Memphis.
If you couldn’t already tell, I am a little obsessed with the city of Seattle. I laid out some of my favorite things about the city in my last post, which you can fine here. I figured this week I could get a little more specific and give you my guide to a long weekend in Seattle. Lastly, I strongly recommend getting the Seattle City Pass if this is your first time going to the city and plan to follow this guide. It saves you a ton of money and gives you admission to some great activities!
Seattle. The Emerald City. Queen City. Rain City. The Jet City. And my favorite city. I will admit I was a Seattle hater before I visited for the first time. I didn’t understand why people were so in love with a city where it constantly rained and didn’t have a beach. I didn’t know about the rich culture and history. I didn’t know about the industry and the hub of innovation. I didn’t know about the endless food options and unique nightlife. Everything changed about two years ago when I visited for the first time.
