4EVRGRN: Hey TP, tell us a little about yourself.
Best meal in the PNW?
I would have to say Seattle Dogs. Especially the stands that are on the streets of downtown. There’s nothing like one of those after a long night out.
What’s the one thing anyone who visits must see or do?
The Fremont troll is usually a must and of course Pike Place Market.
What do you miss most when you’re outside the PNW?
The fresh air and the smell of the trees and how green everything is. Every time I come home from a trip, I take a deep breath outdoors and it’s just like a big “ahhhh! Home!”
Favorite PNW activity?
I love checking out all the little shops in the different neighborhoods and Burroughs like Wallingford, Greenlake, The Ave, Downtown Snohomish, etc. They have the best local artists work, vintage shops, and hole-in-the-wall eateries.
Wildest PNW experience?
My first-time hiking Rattlesnake Ridge! Once you get to the top the view is just ridiculous. Like how many trees and how clear the sky is - It almost looks fake. It truly was wild just for the sheer beauty of it all. That was my first PNW hike being a California girl born and raised.
Best misconception you’ve heard about the PNW?
We’re vampires like in Twilight, everyone is depressed, it rains all 365 days of the year and that everyone is “grungy.” Which is hilarious because the amount of different styles and cultures out here is way more than I was ever exposed to growing up in California.
One thing you want the world to know about the PNW?
Our coastline is one of the most beautiful things you’ll ever see. The people here are super nice and if you ever come to visit make sure to get some coffee from a local barista - not just Starbucks.
