This is hands down one of the coolest places in Seattle! You'll find insane views of downtown Seattle and Lake Union. This place is unique with it's gasworks turned massive art installation. There are big, grassy fields for picnicing or tossing a football around. Stand on Kite Hill and snap some priceless photos - but bring a coat, they call it Kite Hill for a reason!

So You Really Like Coffee?
We are self-professed coffee snobs (especially Josh!), so we go for pour overs and third waves shops. This list consists of places that fall into that category. If you're looking for a local spot to grab a cup of joe, reference "Our Favorite Restaurants" list.
