My favorite things about my cities

Seattle and Tacoma: the climate, the outdoors, the water and its waterfronts, Pike Place Market, the Olympic Mountains, the Puyallup Fair, the Bite of Seattle, the Seattle International Film Festival, Seattle's new light rail system, downtown Seattle, Seattle's restaurants, the Paramount Theater, Point Defiance Park, St. Edward State Park, the ferries, the numerous districts in Seattle and the distinct character you'll find in each one

Washington, D.C.: the free museums and just the sense of importance, tradition, reverence, and excitement that seems to permeate the sidewalks, the architecture, the monuments and everything in between when visiting the nation's capital, the areas just outside of the city (e.g., Great Falls, Virginia; the C&O Canal; Alexandria, Annapolis, Assateague Island)

San Diego: the climate, the mesmerizing vastness of the Pacific Ocean, the beaches and beach cities (La Jolla, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Dana Point), the Gaslamp Quarter, and the many opportunities you have to practice your Spanish or participate in a triathlon

Portland: the bridges, the restaurants, the train ride from Seattle-Portland, no sales tax, gas station attendants pump your gas for you, Lincoln City and Cannon Beach on the coast
