A city of “alternatives,” Seattle offers a variety of things to do, places to eat and things to see that are just this side of quirky. Locals can’t help but love them and recommend them.

MoPOP at Seattle Center is a great day outing that includes an interactive history of Seattle’s iconic musicians and much more.

Capitol Hill is always a popular area for nightlife, no matter what day of the week there is always something going on. The Stumbling Monk is one of my favorite places because it has a dive feel with has a great beer selection.
Andrea I., Goldfinch Tavern private dining manager
Head to Ba Bar Capitol Hill on a weekend for Happy Hour and watch old karate movies with a Moscow mule and the chicken wings. Everything is delicious.
SAM Remix for an amazing night of art, performances, tours, dancing, creating, and exploring. They are at SAM or at the Olympic Sculpture Park.

9lb Hammer is a classic Seattle Bar in the historic Georgetown neighborhood.
If you are a music fiend, hit Easy Street Records in West Seattle. They have a huge selection of music on cd, tapes, DVDs and a ton of vinyl upstairs.

Definitely try and catch a Seahawks game if you get the chance. Fan or not, you just can’t beat the energy in that stadium.
