A co-worker/friend created a list of suggestions for me while I was in New York last week. I asked for fun things that real New Yorkers do, not touristy stuff. Here’s what she gave me:
High Line Park
Shop Soho between Houston and Grand
Greenwich (Bleeker Street)
So as I prepare to leave the city I love, I decided to make my own list for visitors to the Emerald City.
Wine tasting in Woodinville
Pike Place Market
Smith Tower Observation Deck (skip the Space Needle)
Coffee in Fremont
Microbrew at Elysian, Elliott Bay, Hale’s or Pyramid …
Take in the mountains: Cascades to the east, Olympics to the west. Better yet, visit Rainier
Olympic Sculpture Park
Argosy boat tour. Touristy, but fun.
I’m a journalist, content strategist, doting auntie, amateur bobsledder, fitness enthusiast, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
