It is not suitable for browsing the sights. She needs your presence and needs your stopover. Adjacent to the shores of Puget Sound, if you walk up and down a few blocks around Pike Place Market, you can enjoy a wide variety of food in addition to every corner of the coffee shop. . On the north is Seattle’s Space Needle and Seattle Center, and north of the Boeing Factory, which is a favorite of airplane fans. Drive south and enjoy the volcanoes, snow-capped mountains and glaciers at Mount Rainier National Park. There is also a large Olympic National Park in the west to get close to nature.

The atmosphere of art and coffee culture, the beauty of the ancient glaciers and blazing volcanoes, the delicious seafood and the lively market. She is arrogantly entrenched in the western coast of the United States, becoming the emerald city that people yearn for. The rain and fog make people feel unreal, but it also makes sunny days and sunshine more precious. Stepping on here, picking a sunny day, sitting in the bay, holding a cup of coffee at hand, and talking to strangers from the past, is also a wonderful life experience.
Seattle is a rainy city, but the rain is also the soul of Seattle. It annihilates the impetuousness of people’s hearts and makes Seattle have a leisurely leisure in big cities. Slow life makes Seattle people know how to live better. In the afternoon, a cup of milky coffee is on hand, and a delicious frozen crab on the table at night is a pleasure. This kind of Seattle will remind you of the subtle and beautiful heart of life, the lively downtown life, the street artists full of dreams, the fragrant coffee, and the setting sun on the bay. Pick a sunny afternoon, choose a restaurant or cafe on the edge of the bay, sit at the small dining table overlooking the sun, and feel the sunset at dusk. Then reluctantly follow the sunset, take a stroll through the last sunset on the Gulf Trail, and talk to strangers from the past. Maybe you will find you at this time, even breathing with ease.
