Seattle is a wonderful city to visit but very tough on the legs - everything seems to be either downhill or uphill! With views of Elliott Bay to the west and Mt. Rainer to the south, when the weather cooperates it is stunning. Since my last visit to Seattle nearly 30 years ago the city has grown by leaps and bounds and while still accomodating, it is definitely a large city with all if the advantages or drawbacks, depending on your perspective. Enjoy!
