2 Days in Seattle

The Seattle Convention and Visitors Bureau has a message for all of you non-Seattleites:  There's a lot to love about Seattle, and if you come to visit, we think you'll agree.

I, for one, can attest to that.  And if you live in a few major metropolitan areas in the West Coast (Portland and San Francisco, to name a few), you'll soon see billboards featuring a new project to share our greatness with others:

2 days in Seattle are 2 days you won't soon forget.

I suppose one's propensity to remember 2 days in Seattle could actually be negatively correlated to exactly how much you enjoy [drink] those 2 days, but I digress.

The 2 Days in Seattle campaign is unique, innovative, and user driven. Featuring an interactive map with pre-populated with Seattle hot spots, the Bureau then invited a number of national social media mavens to the city to experience if for themselves -- with absolutely no agenda or planned events -- and share their observations while doing so. What you'll now find is a living, breathing visitors guide with tweets, photos, reviews, and suggestions. Oh, when *you* visit, you can add your experiences to the site as well.

Throughout the next few months, I'll sprinkle in a 2-day itinerary here and there on WestToast so you can join in on some of our favorites.  There's food, there's wine, there's beer, and there's spirits.  What on earth else could you need?

Until then, check out http://2daysinseattle.com, build your itinerary, and come visit...although why we want to share, I don't know.

To join the conversation, use #2daysinseattle on Twitter.  If you feel compelled, make a comment about what's on your Seattle list!
