Tested Travel has the opportunity to travel to Seattle for work. While there we fit in some fun!
Seattle is a bustling town, undergoing lots of construction (tech boom?), but also filled with pocket parks and lots and lots of coffee shops.
Places to Stay: Seattle is a big, busy city where there are lots of great places to stay. Tested Travel was there for work and needed to stay near the convention center. Tested Travel selected Residence Inn by Mariott Seattle Downtown.
Eats: To be sure, there are lots of great restaurants in Seattle. As we were there on business (and mostly eating at meetings) we did not have the opportunity to eat out often. We did eat a great meal at Fortune Garden in Chinatown.
Good to Knows: These are a few tidbits that are just helpful (or fun) to know!
Getting From the Airport: Seattle has one of Tested Travel's favorite things -- public transportation from the airport to the center city. For a few dollars and some time (about 45 minutes) you can easily get from the airport to downtown. Follow signs from baggage claim. You can buy tickets via a kiosk on your way to the train stop.

Tested Travel almost always looks for multi-site visit cards offered by cities. These can be a great way to pay less for visiting top sites and increasing awareness of lesser known sites.
We were glad to have purchased the Seattle CityPass. It was easy to use and covered all the major sites -- Space Needle, MoPop, aquarium, harbor tours and more!
