I've Visited Seattle Twice and Would Love to Go Back!

Although my visits were only for a few days each, seeing the sights was made easier (especially since I was traveling with children) by the fact that several of the main attractions are within easy distance of each other. Also, at citypass.com you can purchase a coupon book for some of the main attractions at a discounted price, with special pricing for children.  I thought it was a great deal and  we have wonderful memories of visiting the Emerald City! I hope you're able to visit soon!

If you come back and want a personal tour guide, let me know. ;)

Thanks for your input here, 'cause I think in the back of my mind I was thinking I'd try to live there at some point, but I'd rather stay in love with the city by just visiting when I can lol Note on the citypass to anyone interested: the attractions included can change from time to time so you'll want to check that within a reasonable time before your visit. Also, once you start using the passes in the passbook, you have 5 days or so to use the whole book, more on this at the site citypass.com

We went to Seattle on our honeymoon and did the Citypass thing. We fell in love with the city and the climate, and so we moved there. We lived in Lynnwood (about 15 miles north of Seattle) for about 5 years. I think it's a much better place to visit than live, only because when you live there you have to deal with the commute times (which are awful) and the crowds (which can be bad as well). <br />

Just like any big city, I guess. We found that we spent too much time commuting to really enjoy living there, so eventually we moved back to MT, where life is much less hectic. We'll always have fond memories of the place, though.
