Seattle, Washington

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

You can also check out one 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.
