I decided to take a trip to Seattle to check it out for the first time. I've always been curious if really rains there all the time or not. I went in the middle of September (it wasn't raining) but it was one of the easiest trips I've ever made! I usually rent a car wherever I go because I like to check out the local nature sites. When I was looking up car rentals at the Seattle airport, the prices were super high! So I started doing some research. I was able to find a location in south Seattle that was right off the monorail (I think they call it the light rail) stop. The lightrail took me straight from the airport, to Mt. Vernon station, which was only three blocks from a local Hertz (the Rainier Ave. HLE) site that had super discounted rates! The girl that worked there (I forgot her name) picked me up from the station and drove me back to her office. She explained that the off airport sites are usually much cheaper because they don't have the extra airport fees and taxes. This location is only ten minutes from the heart of down town Seattle also! Which was great, because I stayed at the Pioneer Square Marriott where I was able to get a great deal also. The car worked great for what I needed! I explored the city, the waterfront, and I even took a trip to Mt. Rainier. The waterfront was beautiful. I rode on the Big Wheel, and went to the Aquarium. It was so much fun! And Anthony's had the most delicious seafood mac n cheese I have ever had. If you ever come to Seattle, you MUST go to Rainier! It's absolutely gorgeous. There was a little bit of snow since it was just September, and the marmonts are just darling! For people not familiar with Seattle, Pikes Place Market is a definite place to hit! It's wonderful if you're looking to check out the local goods.
