I have not been to Seattle since, I flew out of there for my first international trip to Czech Republic in 1995. Back then, it was still sleepy and grungy, now it is the town of Amazon and it has changed the skylines and neighborhoods significantly. It also has taken a pro-growth approach to transportation, with bikes everywhere and cars available with a click from your phone. It was a good adventure. One of the highlights was seeing the Ballard Locks empty, it gave the contrast of what built the city, to what the city is now.
