A Taste of Old Seattle

img_0696

Seattle is known for its coffee and eccentric characters- It’s a charming city that sleeps under a blanket of dark clouds.

The few things that stood out to me most of the gloomy city, were its neon lights, mid century modern décor and historical buildings.

Vintage signs hang in the Market Place

The last time I travelled to Seattle, I stayed in the historical Moore Hotel. The vibe of The Moore is almost similar to The Shining but don’t worry, the staff is very welcoming. Established in 1907, The Moore Hotel is in the heart of Seattle and is also two blocks away from Pike Place Fish Market. The vintage neon signs that hang in the Market Place are ones that no one should miss.

If you’re feeling thirsty, The Virginia Inn is a great spot to quench your thirst- it’s been around since 1903 and is considered one of the oldest pubs in the city.

Mid-Century Modern at its finest in the Space Needle

Another popular spot is checking out the breathtaking view of the city’s skyline from the top of the Space Needle. You can admire the Space Needle’s mid century modern atmosphere. Southern California is my one true love but Seattle. . . has charmed me over.

With Love and Respect,

Your West Coast Sister
