As a Northwest native, I love all that Seattle has to offer. The energy of the region is contagious. Seattle, like other great cities of the world, has distinct neighborhoods whose vibe is apparent even to a casual visitor. Seattle is known as the coffee capital of the world, and Washington wines have gained international attention. As a coffee and wine lover, I love sampling new coffees and visiting Washington wineries. Welcome to my blog. Thanks for the chance to share some of my Seattle!
Bellevue WA is once again at the top of CNN Money's list of best places to live in America at #4.
