My name is Aya Tiffany Sato and I live in Seattle, WA. What you find here are my personal favorites in Seattle! My family moved to Mukilteo, WA in 2000 from Vail, CO. I have lived in the city of Seattle since 2010, but I have been very familiar with Seattle many years prior to moving into the city. My friends that live in Seattle can attest to calling me when I lived in other parts of Washington, asking me for directions to a Seattle establishment.

I LOVE hosting out of town friends and giving them a tour of Seattle. This guide resulted in years of a paper guide I made several years ago being passed around and my frustration in being too lazy to update it, coupled with my typing of very long lists to people that would ask me for recommendations over and over again.

Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been in. The city is surrounded by 2 mountain ranges and 2 large bodies of water. On a clear day, you can even see Mount Rainer, both mountain ranges, and the sparkling bodies of water. Even after living in Western Washington for close to 15 years, it blows me away. The mountains are a very short drive away, the only rainforest in North America is a 2 hour drive west, there are 170 islands on the Puget Sound, Washington State has the largest ferry system in the country, and third largest in the world!! Vancouver, BC is a 3 hour drive north, and Portland, OR is a 3 hour drive south. Flying to San Francisco and Los Angeles takes only 2 hours and 2.5 hours respectively, with a flight to Denver also being only 2.5 hours. Convenient, right?
