Griffin Approved

We love Seattle because in addition to being a beautiful city, it is easy to navigate on your own. In Seattle we have taken public transit to the Space Needle and we always stop at the Pike Place Market. In fact, nearby the market is an amazing french bakery called Le Panier that always requires a stop.
