Have you ever been to the Seattle metro area? (Metro population is 3,439,809)
Way back in 1957, when my dad was stationed at Fort Lewis.
No but it's at the top of our list of cities to visit soon.
As a matter of fact, I just got to Seattle this afternoon. Probably won't a lot of sightseeing in, but I've been here before for a week vacation so that's okay. How odd that would be a Q today!
It is lovely here! Perfect weather today. I spent all afternoon on the beach watching dogs & ppl walking on the shore. Sail boats & ferries. Fed a daily visiting seagull @ my host's patio. Watched grandaughter exploring the shore. Took pix! Great!
I'm doing a series asking if you've been to each metro area, going in order from biggest to smaller. It just happened to be Seattle's turn haha
Often. Other than Pike Place and the aquarium, I don't usually have much of a reason to fight the crowds there.
No but I would love to visit
One of the best cities in the U.S. Although I like Vancouver better and it is just a little further north.
I agree. It's definitely one of the best cities in the country. I haven't been to Vancouver yet, but it's high on my list of places to go
Once! i had to testify as an expert witness. The lawyers treated me like royalty, Nice city.
Many times. I'd go back in a heartbeat if the opportunity ever presented itself.
Many, many times
Haha losers! I live there!
Jk of course!
No but it's high on my bucket list of new places to visit.
Woohoo! Finally, one I've been to.
Many times. I have a few friends that live there.
I lived there for 2 years. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Yes. I lived in Washington for years.
AWWWE YEAH, I live there! :P
I'm jealous haha
I dunno why so many people like it, it's not too amazing or anything lol
How many other states have you been to?
Not a lot, I haven't traveled recently but what I remember is Virginia, Arizona, Oregon, Idaho, and I faintly remember Cali& florida. HBU?
I'm too lazy to list them lol. Basically everything west of the Mississippi River and Florida. Did you like any of those places more than Seattle?
Nice! And idk, all of them seem the same to me, I want to get back out and see more though!
Flowerpower, you're downplaying this city! It's so great!
The other day, I walked from my apartment to the nearby sculpture park. I sat down on a grassy slope to read. It was sunny and across the water in front of me, I saw snow capped mountains.
Behind me, I could see the Space Needle and some amazing sculptures. I read for a while, then walked back home.
Where else can you do that??
True true. I thought about it and realized that WA and a few other states touch the ocean, I never really realized that others didn't! So no beaches for them lol :(
But also mount rainier is beautiful but it freaks me out- I don't want it to erupt!
I think you'll be freaked out anywhere you go. I used I live in Missouri (aka Misery, terrible place, don't go) and tornados came through frequently. In the southeast, hurricanes. Southwest, earthquakes. You just have to roll the dice.
Lol wow, thanks for opening my eyes. The world is a dangerous place. :P
No. Would love to go though
Very beautiful area
That is what I have heard. Why are you moving there?
I like it for many reasons. I love CO, but would like to experience living somewhere else and Seattle is the place I've liked most so far. I would like to finish college first though, so it'll be awhile
Make sure you get a job first:)
A couple of times. I loved it there, & considered moving there for some years.
It's beautiful there, I love it
It is. My favorite place I've been outside of CO
