a weekend guide to seattle, washington

Joe and I visited Seattle about a year and a half ago, and I asked my close friend (and roommate at the time), Mackenzie, to make us an itinerary of where to go and what to see since she was born and raised in Seattle. Mackenzie's list was absolutely perfect, and we had an amazing weekend full of good food and awesome views thanks to her. I truly fell in love with Seattle's charm that weekend and I definitely recommend you visit ASAP if you haven't recently! I asked Mackenzie to be a guest blogger for The Urbanite Insight so she can share the city's sparkle with all of you too! Read on to hear about Seattle's staples and hidden gems from Mackenzie's perspective:

Seattle is known as the Emerald city - many know it as such because of the vibrant color scheme of green forests through out the entire city or maybe some tourists think it's just because everywhere you look the 12th man pride is around you. (Seattle loves representing it's Seahawks blue & green!)
