Seattle is a great city to visit definitely in my top 3 North America along with Chicago & San Antonio.
Saw Footie match there Sounders versus Portland Timbers, suppose its the local derby.

Also saw a Eagle in the wild attack its prey on a walk at a place called discovery Park just north of the city.

The Aircraft museum is worth a visit if I remember and of course the original Starbucks :shock:

Oi :wave: I wasn't far off either :lol: :lol:
Only left out Krakow (magnificent), Oslo (small town), Hong Kong (east meets west) because I've done them. DFW is a typical US city with no character, but yes should have had Montreal on my answer

Dallas is one of the few US major cities and want to visit the museum where JFK was shot from. More about Fort Worth though am a little bit into the cowboy side of things.

If you want a thought-provoking museum in the US you can't beat the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN.

It's staggeringly good.

There's a mock-up of a cafe with the sounds of racists verbally abusing a black customer (ie, you effectively) and then there's a bus you board and just like Rosa Parks you get told by the driver to move further back down the vehicle. The most incredible thing for me though was the fact that everything about Martin Luther King's room is completely untouched and just protected by a wall of glass.

Agree it's a great museum visited 12 years ago and the thing i remember most is the film before you go in showing old clips of what it was like.

Returned to Memphis 3 years ago and got chance to go to a church for a gospel service, now that was a great experience.

It's a great city, full stop.

BB King's club is still the best night out in the world for me :)
