Voula's is a local, family-run breakfast favorite. Guy Fieri's show, Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives featured it for its creative, delicious breakfast dishes. It's incredibly popular on the weekends beginning around 10am, so try to get there early or else you'll need to wait outside (limited space inside). Tables inside the diner are very close together and there is also a traditional counter and stools you can sit at and watch the cooks. Portions are very large, and are accompanied by a heaping serving of delicious hash browns, which you can smell the minute you walk into Voula's. A favorite menu item is the Piñata Benedict and local seafood omelette variations. ;)

Steps away and nestled in a plaza where everyone in your group can find something for them, this wonderful family-run teriyaki place is one of our favorites in the city! It offers great service, delicious (free) soup while you wait, sample platters and excellently cooked and flavored chicken teriyaki. Definitely worth a visit, considering Seattle and the west coast of the US are known for some of their really great teriyaki.

This is one of the most popular espresso stands around. Though already in the the city, commuters to downtown stop off an exit early to specifically hit this favorite drive-or-walk-through. Their breakfast burritos and sunshine espresso are highly recommended, as are their to-die-for lattes, w/ expert froth. They have drive-through and walk-through windows on both sides so as to expedite getting you your cup-o-Joe. Sweet service that is respectful of women and has a great sense of humor, posting: "no pasties, just great pastries"! If you like something even more original than the twists on the regular cup-o-Joe, try the Red Bull Italian Sodas! :)

Or you can just let them bring you things you will like. It is all very, very delicious.

Our family's favorite Indian restaurant in all of Seattle. We happened to walk into this family-owned and operated gem about 12 years ago for a lunch break from the University. Nestled at the top of "The Ave" - the famous conglomeration of international restaurants near the University of Washington, you might miss it if you don't have an "insider" telling you about it. It's got all the charm and intimacy of a family dining room, with the taste and flavor rivaling some of the more well-known (and much more expensive) places in the city. We've watched the family that runs it go throughout changes and their children grow; the service is heartwarming and the dishes delicious - highly recommended

We are so lucky to live in a great neighborhood for vegan and vegetarian options. In fact, the longest-standing vegetarian restaurant in Seattle, the Sunlight Cafe, is only a quick ride or brisk walk to the South. The Sunlight Cafe has been enjoyed by local vegetarians and vegans for decades and was specifically founded by friends whose passion for good vegetarian and vegan food speaks for itself. A local reviewer called it right when they said it was a "Local institution" known all-around for its vegan & vegetarian dishes "served in a space with a hippie vibe." Also offering *gluten free* options, as well as additive-free wine and beer!

One of the top zoo and conservation centers in the US and practically in our backyard, this place is great for kiddos and adults alike! My partner and I had zoo passes before becoming parents because it was a great place to go for pleasant strolls, concerts (yes! that's not a typo - check out the zoo tunes concerts in the summer), and special events. Lots of interesting animals to see, lots of plant-life and vegetation, and set up in a way that feels comfortable, spacious and representative of "The Emerald City".

Hey fans of UW sports! The University of Washington and its stadium are very close to us and Uber will get you there in minutes. For the more economical who'd prefer to spend their money on celebrating the impending big win, you'll be happy to know that getting to the stadium public transportation is also a breeze. Simply walk down the block to the bus stop, board the 73 (or the 67 a few blocks away). Either of these buses will drop you off right in front of the stadium (and also the light rail station, which allows quick trips to-and-from downtown for swanky pre- or after-game meals, drinks, etc).

It's a quick trip to this famed home of the Seahawks and the mighty 12th man! Boasting incredible views (particularly along the Alaskan Way Viaduct), it also hosts cultural events and music concerts.

University Way NE, colloquially The Ave, is the commercial heart of the University District of Seattle, Washington and the off-campus extension of the University of Washington (UW). Once "a department store eight blocks long," The Ave has gradually turned into what now resembles an eight-block-long global food court, hipster boutiques and interesting thrift shops.

From a local review: "Theo Chocolate Factory is well worth the $10 entrance fee. You spend about 10 minutes learning about the theobroma tree, conditions in which it can grow and many other interesting facts about chocolate. The best part...many taste testers! Pretty much every type of chocolate they make, and products you can only purchase in the factory. I would go back! Kids 10 years and 8 enjoyed and learned too! Bonus: full size chocolate bar when you finish tour!"

Like Ru Paul's Drag Race? Then you'll love all the shows at Julia's and Le Faux Playhouse. Take in an evening show and if you just can't get enough, come back for brunch-time.

If you like performing art, drag, or just a great show, it's not to be missed! And if you're lucky and think ahead, you might even score a Groupon...

This park has it all - best accessed by Uber or a rental car, it's totally worth it - it offers hiking trails, salmon streams, a walking overpass over beautiful train tracks that stretch out with a view of the Puget Sound (a favorite for kids!). The sandy beach is not only great for sandcastles, picnics and romantic strolls - it features some of the best beachcombing and tidal pools around. It's a dream for kids and adults alike at low-tide.

This park has it all - best accessed by Uber or a rental car, it's totally worth it - it offers hiking trails, salmon streams, a walking overpass over beautiful train tracks that stretch out with a view of the Puget Sound (a favorite for kids!). The sandy beach is not only great for sandcastles, picnics and romantic strolls - it features some of the best beachcombing and tidal pools around. It's a dream for kids and adults alike at low-tide.
This is a very unique local, secret spot with great views hiking or running through foresty and (at times) swampy trails. This is great for groups, families or solo travelers alike, with beautiful views of lilypad fields, the UW stadiums, the crew teams gliding across the water with oarlocks beating like drums over the water. You'll be able to see lots of different Seattle and UW vistas from a magical trail that offers continually changing experiences, flora and fauna as you go. Highly recommended - just be sure you're ready to get your sneakers a little muddy (and that's part of the magic)!

This highly recommended park is a quick jog or bus ride straight south from the house and we can't recommend it enough! It has something for everyone and a classic northwest feel that you can hardly believe is possible to find in the middle of the city. The wooded ravine is cool in the summer, foggy at times, with mossy trees beckoning you to enjoy the enchanted forest feel. But that's not all! From the Seattle Parks webpage: "Ravenna Park is a ½ mile wooded ravine which connects two picnic areas just north of the University District, and is a popular spot for hiking, jogging and picnics. Park features include a play area for children, a wading pool, ballfield, trails, and tennis courts."

If you want to really soak in what it is like to live in Seattle, head over to Greenlake and run, walk, bike, or rollerskate the paved 3-mile loop around the lake. This is such a local favorite that some say you haven't really been a Seattlite without really getting some good footwork time in at Greenlake. You may see classic Seattle crewboats out racing or practicing most times of the year, and it's a beautiful place to relax, have fun, enjoy views and people watch. In the summer, there are paddle boats, canoes and free outdoor swimming. For rainy and winter days, there is also indoor swimming and toddler play rooms offered in the community center year-round. Volleyball, Bball, playgroun
