Seattle

Place: Seattle Last visited: October My perspective: The place is just awful. Gray, one-dimensional and boring. The surrounding geography is spectacular, but the city is nothing more than an overcaffeinated shopping mall filled with upper-middle-class white people wearing backpacks. How many Starbucks and Gaps does one need? Take an hour to visit the Space Needle, Pike Place Market and the Experience Music Project -- and that's all it takes -- and you are left wondering why you bothered. Suggested alternative: Anywhere else --Patrick Sinclair, Alexandria, Va. Pictured: Pike Place Market Kevin P. Casey / For The Los Angeles Times
