My wife and I are flying into Seattle on August 3rd and arrive at 10:40 am. Although we are actually staying to the south in Olympia, we want to take what time we have on Sunday to explore Seattle, and eat lunch and dinner. We will be renting a car at the airport, so we should be able to get anywhere we need to go.
I'm just curious of a couple things.
1) Where would you go eat lunch? No seafood, we don't want touristy, just a place that we can say were really glad we went, with great food and atmosphere, and obviously something local to the city.
2) If all you had was one afternoon, what would you do? I've heard Pike Place is cool, but more than anything I just want to get a feel for the city. Obviously we are tourists, but I'm more curious about what YOU love about Seattle, and what you might bring your friends to who were visiting for the first time, not necessarily what all the tourists do.
3) Dinner, would love to know another great place to eat, local to Seattle with great food. Budget is not a concern, although no fine dining, because we will have just been walking around all afternoon.
Thanks in advance!
