Cool Places around Seattle

So since learning about Seattle and going there last year for my 18th birthday, I've come to realize that it is a really cool town that totally vibes and has a lot of wicked awesome things about it, so here are some cool places around the town that I hope I can move to within the next few years.

The apartment building from the movie Singles,-122.307614&spn=0.002322,0.005284&t=h&z=18&vpsrc=6&layer=c&cbll=47.620491,-122.307614&panoid=7FqL99VGbojb2j49ouYZcA&cbp=12,350.41,,0,-5.39

 The Rathouse, where Mia Zapata and The Gits and their friends lived and played music, before Mia's untimely murder in 1993, located 2-3 blocks from the Singles apartment building,-122.307243&spn=0.00029,0.00066&t=h&z=21&vpsrc=6&layer=c&cbll=47.618508,-122.307243&panoid=txNnSpXNPrb6DfJGUcXMCA&cbp=12,7.5,,0,-1.74

Kurt Cobain's house where he lived and died, ok, it's somewhere around there,+Seattle,+WA&hl=en&ll=47.619441,-122.282542&spn=0.001235,0.002642&sll=47.619585,-122.282603&sspn=0.003493,0.010568&vpsrc=6&hnear=171+Lake+Washington+Blvd,+Seattle,+Washington+98112&t=h&z=19

 Pike Place Market, a huge farmer's market,-122.340037&spn=0.000306,0.00066&t=h&z=21&vpsrc=6&layer=c&cbll=47.608836,-122.340037&panoid=n4vO0EbqGHns8dRUQjL2JQ&cbp=12,225.64,,0,4.57

Occidental Park,-122.333123&spn=0.00245,0.005284&t=h&z=18&vpsrc=6&layer=c&cbll=47.600041,-122.332963&panoid=a5h8NpI7iCjpGlT-6JcWeA&cbp=12,338.51,,0,-1.74

Waterfall Garden Park, we didn't get to go there because we couldn't find it, but it looks like it would be cool,-122.3322&spn=0.00245,0.005284&t=h&z=18&vpsrc=6&layer=c&cbll=47.600038,-122.332041&panoid=HKRBrcgUX5hXluEVv5Dt_w&cbp=12,358.72,,0,-2.83

Dr. Martens store, the old OK Hotel music club is somewhere around there too, but I think it's closed down,-122.338037&spn=0.00245,0.005284&t=h&vpsrc=0&layer=c&cbll=47.603648,-122.338318&panoid=nFJ2P4TjeMQowc9fJFTqUQ&cbp=12,73.46,,2,-3.34&z=18

There's another Dr. Martens Store relatively close to that one

The Crocodile Cafe music club,-122.344453&spn=0.000309,0.00066&t=h&z=21&vpsrc=6&layer=c&cbll=47.61333,-122.344453&panoid=xJ0Fr30vCPNFDe-ftUT40w&cbp=12,22.21,,0,-1.83

There are other grunge music venues such as Gorilla Gardens, Club Moe, RKCNDY, the OK Hotel (which is also the coffee shop from Singles) and I'm sure there are more

The Sound Garden, a sort of art piece with metal poles all around that apparently make cool sounds, and Soundgarden got their name from there.

They also had tons of random artsy sculptures and murals around the town,  and tons of poles with old remnants of band flyers all over them, which was my favorite part of the town, all of which proves how cool and bohemian and artsy and musical the town is. I'm SO moving there. If anyone wants me, I'll be in Seattle. Now which way to Seattle...
