    Gonna be in Seattle and Portland next week. I have found some touristy things to do, but are there any things natives can recommend. I'll be about 1/2 mile south of Pike Place in Seattle and in the Pearl District in portland. Tia :hat:

    Wow. You have picked the most cliche places to stay in both cities. Just venture out and take MAX in Portland. Go up to Washington Park and Forest Park. Great views of the city and should be great weather. As for Seattle, go out of the city if you can....Ballard is fun to walk around in.

    Amazing Strip Clubs!! Oregon = Full Nude and Full Bar. Tons of aggressive little whores in both cities.

    There's a great Thai place at the base of the Space Needle...Thai Heaven, it used to be called.

    Fremont has some great bars (Red Door) and you can always see the trolls. also tour the Red Hook brewery.

    Pike Place Market...you gotta get high and watch the flying fish there for a minimum of 30 minutes.

    Portland has an underground tour as well. All of the old opium dens of the Chinese rail and dock workers.

    I'm a tourist, dipshit. The nice hotels are in "cliche" places.

    With that out of the way, we have public transportation right at both hotels and plan to use it as our primary mode of transportation. We are looking for things like those park recommendations. Wife wants to see the smallest park in the world while we are there too :)

    Lots of stuff seems to lead us to Chinatown area. I was there a few months back just southeast of chinatown and there were a lot of questionable characters at sunset.

    If she wants to see the smallest dick in the world (with the longest hair), that'll require around a 1200 mile drive south on I-405.

    Your wife may be interested in seeing the original Starbucks just down the street from the famous fish tossing market at Pikes Place. They sell cups etc that are only available there. My wife really liked it.
