Life in Seattle
Hi everyone. I am James Sigler, and I live in Seattle. I’m a recovering alcoholic that now enjoys an amazing live in Seattle thanks to Recovery Village Ridgefield. I’m very fortunate to live in a great city. This city offers many wonderful things that you can see and experience. If you want to live in a city that offers a lot of possibilities, this is the one you should visit. I know that you will enjoy staying here as much as I do living here. If you want to live here, you have come to the right place.

Why else do I love living in Seattle? Bustling downtown Seattle has everything. It has some of the most appetizing fresh seafood options on the planet. If you like shrimp, fish, crab and everything in between, you certainly won’t go hungry in The Emerald City. Seattle is also a great destination for coffee lovers. If you’re the type of person who feels cranky until you get your morning caffeine fix, you won’t have any issues in Seattle. The choices in coffee shops run the gamut. They’re not just chains as well. Cozy “mom and pop” coffee shops also abound in the city.
Seattle has a music scene that’s the stuff of legend at this point. It’s no secret to anyone that grunge rock originated in Seattle back in the early nineties. It’s also no secret that the city has a magnificent live music scene to this day. I can go out on any night of the week and catch a local act that completely knocks my socks off. These bands don’t just perform indie rock tunes, either. They perform music of all genres. I’ve caught some highly impressive soul, jazz and even electro performers gracing the stages.
The people who live in Seattle also happen to be some of the warmest and most welcoming folks around. I’ve been to many of the biggest cities on the planet. Some of the people on the streets will barely look you in the eye as they pass you. People in Seattle, however, are nothing like that. You don’t have to hesitate to ask people for directions in Seattle. They’re always delighted to lend others helping hands.
This is a restaurant that has everything you could want. There are different meals you can try out with reasonable prices. To have the best table at your disposal, you might want to make a reservation.
The prices are moderate when you compare the service and the quality of the food. This restaurant is probably one of the best ones in this city. Hope you will enjoy it.
The pink door
This one is an Italian restaurant. You can have other meals and dishes of course, but the accent is on the Italian cuisine. We recommend the lasagna here; it is delicious. Keep in mind that like in every restaurant it is a good idea to have a reservation to have the best table possible. We wish you a great time and a great meal.
The crumpet shop
If you like British cafes or you like something that has a more relaxed atmosphere without the sophisticated flavor, this is the place for you. Here, people are completely in a chill mood.
You can order a coffee, and you can order a meal with it. A casual atmosphere if you are on a brake or you simply want to combine the meals you want to without the look.
Tilikum place café
This is probably the same thing as the previous one. This is a typical European café with food course. You can order pretty much anything, and you can combine it with things you like without the strange stare from those who have certain rules when eating meals.
This is the place for those people who enjoy a chill place to hang out and of course the atmosphere is wonderful.
Beecher’s handmade cheese
If you like cheese, you should check this one out. This is for those people who like cheese and different types of cheese. If you belong to that kind of people, you are in the right place. We know that you will love it here.
If you want to have the best possible transport and the fastest one, we would always recommend a cab company. But let’s say, for example, you don’t want to use the cab. Is there any other public transportation in this city? Well for starters, you can always use Bike share service. That’s right! You can use bikes for your transport.
Those people who want to be active and who want to learn something about this city from a more personal perspective should choose this option. It is not expensive; in fact, it is cheap. Probably the best option for those who want to be active and who don’t want to be bothered with a timetable of certain public transport.
This is very similar to a train. In fact, it is a train on one rail. If you want to travel fast and without any delays, the monorail is the way to go. Keep in mind that they don’t take credit cards so you might want to have some cash or try to use some different lines. People like trains and monorails because they are mush faster than buses and even cabs.
If you like the timetable or you simply want to have a line that will be there when the timetable says it will be, you should choose the bus line. Line 99 or route 99 is the route that is most popular in Seattle.
Sure you will walk for some time, but keep in mind that people who take the bus will usually have enough time to walk to their home.
This is the option for those people who don’t want to lose any time in public transport. Of course, taxies are more expensive than other types of transport.
We understand the possible frustration you could have but keep in mind that the public transport is not that bad once you understand the system.
If you want to visit Seattle or you want to start living in Seattle, you should understand how the routes work, and of course, you need to understand how the public transportation works. It is not expensive, and you can plan the entire trip from place to place. This is a wonderful city and offers great things. It is a nice place to live and of course, you can meet some interesting people here.
This is probably one of the best structures in the city. The architecture is futuristic, and people love this building. When you reach the top, you can see the entire city. The view is awesome. A recommendation for everyone who comes to Seattle. It takes your breath away.
Chihuly garden and glass
This is a garden and a museum. For those who like art, plants, and gardens. It is a magnificent place for people who like nature and everything that is in nature and art that you can combine in as a whole. We know that you will love it here.
Pike place market
This is a market that has a long history. You can buy pretty much anything here. This is a place that is well-known for its seafood. You can buy pretty much everything you can imagine. There are fish, shells, shrimp and many other sea types of meat you can find everywhere in the ocean.
This is the option for those people who like this type of food. Of course, you can find pretty much anything else. The key is to find the food you like according to your own needs. We know that you will love it.
Experience music project museum
If you are a fan of pop music, this is a place to go. If you are a fan of music, in general, this is the place you want to visit. Culture is a mighty thing in this city, and we know that you will love it if you are a fan of it. It doesn’t matter which genre of music you like; music is art and genres are irrelevant when it comes to great artists and musicians.
Museum of flight
IF you like airplanes, this is the thing you want to visit. People who like all sorts of planes will be thrilled to be here. Children love this place because of the planes you can see.
But if you are a plane enthusiast and you know a thing or two about these “birds”, you should definitely check this museum out. It has all sorts of planes and all types of planes.
Olympic Sculpture Park
This is also a combination of art and beauty. This park is probably one of the best things you can visit in Seattle that is associated with nature and with architecture at the same time.
