I'm going to be traveling to Seattle late next month for a family event. The original plan was for us all to fly into the airport around the same time on Thursday, but now I think I want to fly in a day or two early and explore the city! I've been wanting to take my first solo trip for a while, and this seems like a safe bet since I'll only be alone a few days before my family arrives.
1.) Any places you think I should definitely check out while I'm there? I've been to Seattle before and saw the Space Needle and SAM, so I would rather not repeat those. For context, I'm happy anywhere with good drinks and live music.
2.) I love seafood. Any casual restaurants with awesome seafood and a bar I can sit at?
3.) I'll be there on a Wednesday night. What bars or areas would be most fun on a Wednesday? I want to explore during the day and be able to unwind a little a night. If you know a place that tends to attract more solo travelers, that would be perfect!
4.) I would also love to get out and do some light hiking or take in the beautiful PNW scenery, but I won't have a car. Is there any public transit that could help with this?
