    Is the Bellevue that you are all referring a neighborhood within the city? I remember a suburb called Bellevue that had a really nice mall (Bellevue Square)..is it "hoity-toity" there or something?

    Bellevue is its own city, on the Eastside. It is completely hoity-toity

    I remember taking the bus back from North Bend through Bellevue and there being this hoity-toity, ooodie-poodie, bellevueite girl that was 'slummin it' in her best faux homeless get up, and she was talking about how cool it was to piss her parents off by hanging out with the homeless crowd in Seattle.

    Is it a bad thing that she was trying to be different?

    ...because the entire population and place is like a generic "wholesome-happy-people" stock photo gallery come to life?

    I'm not entirely certain what this arguement/issue is pertaining to... but apparently I need to avoid Bellevue?

    In either event, I think I'm going to check out the Seattle Space Needle, the Pike Place Market, The Aquarium, any other cool marketplaces or anything like that? I know there are the Seattle Outlets and what have you, I'm going to check out Capitol Hill as well...

    I think I that will pretty much cover what I want to do, and of course get lots of pictures

    If anyone else has any suggestion let me know here or PM me!

    Thanks again
    Kyle

    Yes, the neighborhood farmer's markets are a must if you want fresh fruit or snacks. There are some interesting characters and they are a good place to people watch and get an idea of another side to WA that you don't always see in Seattle. My personal favorite is the one in the University District on Saturdays.

    Don't forget the ferries and the Elliot Bay water taxi. Lovely!

    Hi All,

    So I am headed to Seattle in a week's time and I am super excited, so far I have plans to check out the Space Needle, Capitol Hill, Pike Place Market, Maybe the Aquarium and Seattle Art Museum as well, are there any big concerts or shows coming to the Seattle area that anyone knows about? I'm super excited either way

    The highlights of my last visit to Seattle included the Olympic Sculpture Park and the Seattle Public Library! Yes, that might sound a little weird visiting a library but the architecture is wonderful. You can join a tour from the information desk.

    I haven't been to Ballard yet but that's on my list for a future visit. Is it worth visiting? I only know of Ballard because I've read about the excellent menswear shop "Blackbird".

    As for the Bellevue debate, I really enjoyed my last visit to the Bellevue Art Museum. It has great architecture and really interesting collections.
