Our Top 10 TikToks of 2021

We've already shared our Top 10 stories and photo galleries from 2021, so we (of course) have to do the same with TikTok! We posted hundreds of TikToks this year — from once-in-a-lifetime animal experiences to a certain British superstar visiting a certain iconic farmers market — we all have our faves. Here are Seattle Refined's Top 10 TikToks of 2021:

1. Whales in Alaska

Our very first video to get over 1 million views — wild!

2. The Splintered Wand

And a story that made all three of our Top 10 lists of 2021: Ballard's new wizard bar!

3. Harry Styles visits Pike Place Market

British superstar Harry Styles was spotted by fans at Pike Place Market the weekend of his "Love On Tour" Tacoma show in November. An adorable interaction occurred when those fans gave the singer flowers!

4. Olaf's Corn Dogs

You loved this 7-second clip of the delightful corn dogs at Olaf's in Ballard...and we totally get it.

5. PNW Heat Wave

Never forget the heat we endured this summer. I sure won't.

6. Shaq in Seattle

Still obsessed with this. Scoot scoot, Shaq!

7. Citizen

If you've never visited Citizen in Queen Anne, you must! Their outdoor beer garden has the most insane setup — lights (like, so, so, so many lights), tents, heaters, the whole thing!

8. ChungChun Rice Dog

You can find this popular Korean street food in Seattle's International District.

9. Beluga in Tacoma

More whale-y good content!

10. Orcas in Tacoma

And, last but not least, even MORE whale content... Nature's beautiful orca-stra in Puget Sound!
