Seattle is well known for its stunning views of the Olympic mountain range, access to the Pacific Ocean, and…well of course, for its rain. If you’ve been to Seattle though, you’ll know that its also got a ton of character! There are so many awesome little coffee shops and bars that are tucked away in some of the oddest spots.
