Seattle downtown is my favorite downtown so far. I don’t know if it’s the Puget Sound, the extremely steep roads or Mt Rainier in the background, downtown in Seattle looks extremely pretty.
When I was doing my MS in Buffalo, I always went to downtown when it was dark (dinners and other things). So I never saw how beautiful it really was. For me, downtown was one of those shady areas where shady dudes trying to sell shady things roamed around. Now that I work around this region, I see that it has it’s own charm.
Buffalo’s downtown is next to Lake Erie (the lake which is mainly responsible for Lake effect snow in this region). The Canal side is the perfect place to be in summer (and I stress ‘summer’ because winter is really harsh here, that is, for a non Buffalonian).
