Seattle reminds me a lot of of Vancouver, for all you Canadians out there! And you could literally do this trip simply to eat, which is a lot of what we did…ate and walked! When arriving at the airport, you can use the Light Rail O! So easy – we got off at West Lake to get downtown. We stayed at the Warwick Hotel and were super happy with the location.
- Getting the City Pass ahead of time is beneficial – it will guide with you lots of things to do and you’ll save time standing in line for each sight
- Wander around the Pike Place Market
- Go to the Chihuly Garden & Glass Museum
- Head up the Space Needle to get a view of Seattle
- Take a boat tour
- Do a wine tasting
Now to the Food…
- Local 360 – unreal!! Local and organic food. We went back there multiple times
- McMenamins – Irish Pub for happy hour
- Dahlia Bakery – a good, quick breakfast
- Cupcake Royale – ice cream!
- Rachel’s Ginger Beer – you can find this ginger beer at most of the restaurants downtown, but heading there and creating your own alcoholic or non-alcoholic “moscow mule” or some sort of variety is super fun
- Matt’s in the Market – finer dining
- Oddfellows Cafe and Bar & Little Oddfellows Coffee Shop – go to the first one for breakfast, and since you may be waiting in line for awhile, have someone head next door to the bookshop and grab you a coffee/tea
- Tankard and Tun – seafood restaurant in Pike Place
- The Tasting Room – a good spot for some wine tasting!
- Le Pichet – intimate French restaurant
- Lowell’s – a super standard breakfast
- Beecher’s – get some Mac & Cheese!
Enjoy the water, the walking, and…the wine…had to keep with the “w” theme there!
