Under $100 / North America

Seattle, Washington, is so full of fun things to do, it will keep you coming back again and again. Here’s how to explore the best of what the city has to offer without breaking the bank.

Start your day in Pike Place Market with breakfast at the Crumpet Shop. They open every day (except Tuesday) at 7 a.m. and you can get a crumpet with egg, cheese and ham along with a latte for less than $10.

After you’ve filled up, go exploring in Pike Place Market. The marketplace has been around since 1907 and has nine acres to explore with street performers along the way. The shops are affordably priced and looking is always free. The fishmongers in the market put on a show with their fish throwing antics.

Once you’ve worked up your appetite, grab a bite to eat at Athenian Seafood, where you can get a plate of salmon fish and chips for less than $20 while you watch the non-stop activity on Elliot Bay.

Spend the afternoon stretching your legs at Washington Park Arboretum. The park is completely free and a great place to enjoy the fresh air of the Pacific Northwest and experience that lush greenery Washington is famous for.

For dinner, hit up Radiator Whiskey where you can enjoy a delicious fried pork shank for $20 and a craft cocktail for $12 in a trendy setting.

After dinner, head back to Pike Place Market for an evening of improv at Unexpected Productions. Tickets run $8–10 per person.

Dealing with FOMO When Studying Abroad

The Fear of Missing Out greatly affects students who study abroad. For months students look forward to the countries they will call home, whether for a semester or a year, and then after they arrive, the loneliness and separation sets in. It’s difficult to be away from family and friends for a long amount of time and studying abroad is no exception, no matter how badly a student wants to fall in love with their city.

Taking It Back to Basics at Ghent’s Gruut Brewery

Breweries are everywhere today and, while many craft and microbreweries specialize in particular styles of beer, few are quite as specialized as Ghent Gruut Brewery in Ghent, Belgium. Here, the current craze for hop-heavy India Pale Ales is entirely eschewed as absolutely no hops at all are used in the brewing process. Before you clamor to claim this can’t be beer at all as everyone knows the four ingredients of beer are grain, water, yeast, and hops, consider hops weren’t actually added to beer until the 13th century. Before then, all beers were flavored with herbs and spices, or gruut, as the French population of medieval Ghent called them.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
