The Georgetown neighborhood is full of Seattle history, but there’s nothing more spectacular than the Hat ‘n’ Boots, a 44-foot-wide orange cowboy hat and a 22-foot-tall pair of blue cowboy boots.

These relics were once part of a popular gas station in the area, and luckily for us, they were saved and installed at petite Oxbow Park. Set up your shot with the hat “on” your head, scramble onto the boots or choose an angle to get the set together in the frame.

Airplane buffs will love how the planes fly in low and loud to land at nearby Boeing Field. Wander the neighborhood to inspect its historic buildings and mixture of industry and charming older homes. If you’ve got younger kids with you, don’t miss the fantastic playground at nearby Georgetown Playfield. If you’re in the neighborhood on a weekend, stop by the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall.

Next stop: chew first, then shoot
