I am constantly begging my friends to come visit me in Seattle because I LOVE to show off the city. Give me a couple of hours or give me a couple days and I will give you a whirlwind tour of all of the greatness that Seattle has to offer. Wear comfortable shoes and put your eating pants on because lots of our tour will revolve around food and drink and will also include as many quintessential Seattle sites as we can possibly cram into whatever amount of time we have.
I’m pretty proud of my itineraries, which is why I’ll feature them on Seattle by Sarah every so often. In case you have out-of-towners on the way and need some ideas, these ones are tried and true!
Here is a sample itinerary from a visit by my friend Elizabeth last June. She’s a current resident of San Francisco and made her first visit to Seattle in June of 2011.
