Seattle gets prettier every time I go there. In fact, it probably doesn’t get enough credit for its beauty. A city surrounded by water and lovely mountains deserves attention. And when you add world class attractions, public art, top rate museums, markets, and delicious food it really is a perfectly lovely way to spend a weekend. (I suppose when the rain and clouds settle in for most of the year people might think different but it seems every time I visit I bring the glorious weather with me!)
My husband and I flew up for the weekend to visit the Lemay car museum. (Another post for another day.) While in town we visited the space needle, the aquarium, Pike’s Place market, the underground tour, and the EMP museum (Music, sci-fi, and pop culture. What’s not to like there?).
The highlight of the trip for me was stumbling across the Pink Door Italian restaurant. We just happened to be walking by and saw people eating on a beautiful balcony with an amazing view of the bay. We walked around trying to find the entrance to the restaurant and couldn’t find anything but a pink door with no name. We opened it and voila! I’ll never eat anywhere else in Seattle again!
