Playing tour guide in Seattle (and the surrounding gorgeous Pacific Northwest) is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I truly believe this city and the surrounding forests, waterways, and mountains are some of the most breathtaking places on the earth. Big words, I know. I’m just so grateful to live here, but even more so when friends come to see it, too. Last month my friends Danielle and Wil Rivera of Danfredo Photo + Films visited the Pacific Northwest for the first time ever, so naturally I had to show them the best of the best: delicious snacks, strong dranks, stunning mountains, and rocky beaches — the real PNW experience. They shot stills and video during the trip and I just HAD to share…
A few of our stops in no particular order…
- the Great Wheel
- the gum wall
- Pike Place market (go to Mee Sum Pastry for pork buns and Piroshky Piroshky)
- Casco Antiguo
- Ballard Beer Company
- Lil Woody’s
- The London Plane
- Paca Pride (en route to a hike near Granite Falls)
- La Push beach
- Hurricane Ridge
Seriously, I love playing tour guide ;)
He puts up with a lot.
I love when Danielle and Wil visit — not just because they are amazing photographers, but also because they capture sweet moments that I will always cherish. You know when you describe someone as ‘good people?’ Well, that’s them. So, so good.
