Get the door, it's the liquor store
Few cities have the curb appeal of Seattle. Visit once and you’re hooked — the long, sunny summers, the smell... of coffee around every corner, the smell of briny commerce blowing off the Puget Sound. Seattle isn’t the sleepy little port town it was half a century ago. It’s bloomed into one of America’s major metropolitan centers, but in doing so it’s managed to retain its leafy green beauty. Among the trees and mountains are major companies like Amazon, Zillow and Starbucks, as well as an entire generation of young entrepreneurs and tech-savvy intellectuals. Hills heave the streets up and down, giving the city character and giving you a killer thigh workout. No wonder it’s one of the healthiest cities in the country. Plenty of the workforce commute by bike, even during those misty, mystical winters. Living in Seattle puts you a stone’s throw away from the Cascade Mountains and all their snowy pleasures. It also puts you a stone’s throw away from Canada, Mount Rainier and the rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula. The only thing that’s closer than a stone’s throw in Seattle, amazingly, is booze. Drizly lets you order any beers, wines and liquors your heart desires and have them delivered straight to your door in 60 minutes or less. And with over 60 craft breweries in the city alone, you’ll have less trouble keeping up with new offerings.
