The Inside Scoop on Seattle

It's no surprise that Seattle is one of the newest tourist attractions for individuals in their 20's and some may even say it is the "new San Francisco" (definitely a cheaper San Francisco, that's for sure). Over spring break, I had the opportunity to travel and explore this iconic city for a couple of days and I wanted to share a few of my favorite food spots, views and night life attractions. Just a disclaimer, there are far more attractions and places to visit than the handful that I will mention, but this blog is purely to give you insight and inspiration if you ever plan to visit Seattle. 

Here's a look book of some of my favorite art, views, and food spots. Enjoy! 

   "Ferris Wheel"  Photo taken by Calvin Harjono -The Argosys Cruise is an hour long guided boat tour of Seattle. It goes around the entire perimeter of the pier with a narration of historical and significant points of Seattle. This is super awesome for those who want to learn about the history of Seattle while getting a full view of the beautiful city!
