Seattle in Pictures: A Weekend is Plenty of Time in this Gorgeous City

Seattle: the most photogenic city. A weekend in Seattle is plenty of time to catch the main sites in and around the city. I ended up in Seattle for a work trip, and flew up the weekend before to check it out. I’m so glad I did, as I got to see the sites, eat the freshest salmon I’ve ever tasted, and even go hiking on Mt. Rainier. I present to you, Seattle in pictures. Warning: extreme wanderlust may follow.

You obviously cannot forget about the original Starbucks. However, this shop is very crowded with no sitting room. If you want to try out their rarer coffees, go to the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room instead in Seattle.
