|Seattleites ain't scared to say|

Before the first non-native, American settlers came to Seattle, the waterfront was a meeting place for local tribes. In recognition of Seattle's early pre-colonial history, Alaskan Way is getting an honorary name, Dzidzilalich! Seattleites are not afraid to tackle tricky pronunciations like Sequim, Puyallup, Stillaguamish, Skokomish, and Suquamish. You can say this one too and impress all your friends! Start out phonetically: Zee-zee-lay-lish, Dzeezeelaylish, Dzidzilalich. You got it! It means the meeting place, which is perfect for Seattle's new waterfront.

|Is this really a thing?|

If you don't believe that Seattle's waterfront is a great place to fish, then you have never caught calamari off one of the piers. Squid is a favorite of local anglers during the dark hours of the cold months. Strong, portable lights attract the cephalopods. A fishing license is required - anglers can keep up to 10 lbs per day.

The basin will rise from a low of -3 feet around midnight on Christmas Day to +13 feet the morning after. That's right... the water level will change by more than 16 feet in eight hours!
