- Seattle drivers treat pedestrians very well. As a pedestrian, you don't have to walk defensively as you do in most cities. If you have the right-of-way, the driver will always yield. Even in times when you don't have the right of-way, they will allow you to go.
- Top Pot doughnuts are the best. Hotel Vintage Park stalked me on Twitter, and ended up sending a box of five of these delicious doughnuts to my room.
- Due to my experience at Hotel Vintage Park and Hotel Monaco Seattle, I will now be a loyal customer to Kimpton Hotels. What other chain brings a pet gold fish to your room? Just one thing, I wish they knew they didn't have to address me as "Mr. Eubanks" each time they saw me.
- One disappointing thing about Seattle is that they don't have a visitor pass available to purchase for the public transit system. It's always nice to be able to buy a pass that will let you ride the rails and bus an unlimited amount of times for a set amount of days.
- Walking down the street, most people in Seattle will not make eye contact with you, but once you go indooors, they become the friendliest people no matter where you are.
- Pike Place Market is a wonderful place to spend time. The vendors would spoil me with samples of fresh fruit.
- If you ever go to Seattle, Fremont is a neighborhood you need to check out. It is home to Archie McPhee's, a Lenin statue which one called Czechoslovakia it's home, and the infamous Fremont Troll.
- It's quite easy to meet friends anywhere in Seattle. I made a couple of friends at the Fremont Troll. We ended up going on the Underground Tour together. I also went to a Big Head Todd and the Monsters concert with three friends I met previously that evening during wine hour at the hotel. I had never heard of Big Head Todd before that night.
- The EMP (Experience Music Project) Musem is a lovely place to visit. No other place has as much Nirvana, Jimmy Hendrix, Pearl Jam and science fiction memorabilia as they do.
- After eating Alaskan cod in Seattle, it is difficult to eat any seafood in Kansas.
- I think people in Seattle may be coldblooded. At 55 degrees, they were all bundled up in heavy winter garb.
