"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
June 28th, 2009
Located in the top left-hand corner of the United States, Seattle is an incredibly cool place to be. With its “chill” coffee shops and bookstores as well as rich culture and museums, Seattle tends to attract the more “artsy” types of people. But if you are not the artsy type, don’t worry because there are plenty of tourist attractions to keep you “sleepless”.
Another iconic location in Seattle is the Pike Place Market. The market is a tourist and local hotspot where there are restaurants, shops, art vendors, produce vendors, and LOTS of fish stands. During the afternoon and night, the market is an extremely popular place to be so if you want to avoid crowds, go in the early morning. If you’re interested in the market go to

The music scene is also huge in Seattle. Although there’s no more Kurt Cobain, the music scene is definitely not in the gutter. Music is everywhere: in the coffee shops, bookstores, streets, etc. Another cultural identity of Seattle is its food. Seattle, as well as the rest of the Pacific Northwest, places an emphasis on natural and fresh produce and ingredients (which is why Pike Place Market is such a hotspot) as well as fusing other cultures into their organic-like cuisine.
