#20: Seattle, Washington

The birthplace of grunge music is also the unofficial capital of coffee consumption in the United States. Why? Starbucks and Seattle’s Best Coffee were founded in Seattle, of course. Depending on the weekend, you might find one of several major festivals held in the city; from the music event Bumbershoot held over Labor Day weekend to the one of the many ethnic festivals held each year.

You can also check out some of the dozens of museums, including the Seattle Metropolitan Police Museum, Museum of Flight, or the Museum of History and Industry. From there, many sign up for the Seattle Underground Tour, a trek to many places that existed before the city’s Great Fire.

Don’t Miss: If you’re serious about coffee, you will love Espresso Vivace Sidewalk Bar. located in Capitol Hill. Any place that puts their in-house roasted beans in little bowls with the date of roasting attached definitely knows their stuff. Try the creamy Americano, we hear it’s to die for!
