I don't want to sound stuck up... please excuse the ignorance because, that's just what it really is and I need your help!
Is there anything that Seattle offers that is so great that L.A. can't offer? I don't like coffee so, that takes out the most famous claim that Seattle offers.
L.A. has some amazing chocolate places so, I'm not interested in visiting any of those in Seattle either. L.A. has some amazing pizzerias that I'd say would be really hard to top so, not interested in pizza either.
I have *heard* about the amazing selection of micro brews Seattle offers so, perhaps a suggestion as to where I could go for that would be great!
But, what else does Seattle have that makes it such a "foodie" destination that L.A. doesn't have???
I will be staying at the Fairmont Olympic and won't have a car :( However, if there is something REALLY worth my time then I certainly won't mind taking public transportation or a taxi to get there. Another note, I will have an ENTIRE day (Saturday) to explore. I really want to fall in love with Seattle. Please help me put together an itinerary that will help me do so.
Much appreciated!
