Seattle, United States

Overview

Arguably the coolest place in the world, Seattle sits between two mountain ranges and innumerable bays, lakes and rivers. Yes, it rains a lot. But since all that rain makes for one lush summer it is all worth it. Local pastimes include gallery hopping, sipping coffee in cafes, bicycling and trying to legalize marijuana. A visitor should ascend to the top of the Space Needle, shop for artisan goods at Pike Place Market and check out a local brewery or coffee roaster. Seattle has a killer music scene, it didn't stop with the death Kurt Cobain, you can hear rock, hip hop, pop, jazz and folk every night of the week at venues around the city. Matador has Seattle day trips a plenty below, including visiting the "One Square Inch of Silence" in the Hoh rain forest and advice for exploring 5 of Seattle's best parks. You can also eat your way through the International District, search for the world's best burger and get the skinny on the famous Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic.

Be a local. Wherever you go.
