Seattle: 5 Must-See Destinations


As someone who ranks birds somewhere alongside Chucky and those horrifying translucent fish with bulging eyes and mile-long teeth on the creepiness scale, Seattle may not have been the best choice for a vacation. The city, while full of life and coffee shops, is full of pigeons. I spent about three-quarters of my trip ducking for cover and scuttling backwards to avoid contact with the hopping, pecking birds that seemed to follow me everywhere I went. Aside from my pigeon phobia though, Seattle rapidly climbed the charts to become one of my favorite American cities.
