I can't believe nobody has mentioned El Guacho and Canlis. If you are looking to dine out, these restaurants must be mentioned. They are, IMHO, the best restaurants in Seattle when it comes to a good filet mignon. Also, head to Rainier Valley, and make sure to eat at Jones BBQ. Awesome food. If you are on Capital Hill, check out Queen Sheeba for some mind-blowing great ethiopian food (or the one on 12th and Cherry, it's great but I don't remember the name). You can't leave Seattle without riding the ferry. Take one to Bainbridge Island from Downtown Seattle, and there are a handful of great restaurants in BI. The ride is relaxing and pleasant. Also, if you like to bicycle, make sure to rent a good bike at Ti Cycles (in University Village area) and ride the Burke-Gillman trail out to the Velodrome in Kirkland. It's a fun ride, with some cool scenery. The Olympics are mind-bogglingly beautiful. A great day hike would be to take the Geyser Valley trail, which is approximately 3 miles long and very easy. On the trail, you will see one of the original Press Expedition homesteads (if it's still there). Make sure to stop at Goblin's Gate, as it makes a great lunch spot. When do you plan on being in Seattle?
