1. Go to this map: Seattle Layover or this one:
2. Then add 1 or 2 ATTRACTIONS, (restaurants, experiences, places, trails, etc.) that you would consider "Musts" for visitors with only a few hours here.

Don't forget to add your name as part of the title.

- Change the icon to better represent the attraction
- Add an image into the description.
- Add a video into the description.
- Try adding a shape or line to represent an area or hiking trail. Can you change the color?
