Blogposts coming soon! In the meantime...
- Go to Umi Sake House for the best. sushi. ever.
- Walk around Pike Place Market - visit the fish market, the first Starbucks, the gum wall, pick up cheese at Beecher's, dine at rumored-to-be-haunted Kells
- Take a ferry to Bainbridge or one of the surrounding islands. A fun experience and great views of the city
- Stop by Kerry Park for the best views of the city - aim for sunset!
- On a nice day Alki Beach is a great option and also offers great views
- Ride the Great Wheel!
- Gas Works Park, weather permitting of course
- If you're feeling extra fancy ($$$$), Canlis is fantastic and worth supporting
- I Love Sushi if you... love sushi ;) do note that this isn't very... hip. If you're looking for something more upbeat and fun, stick with Umi (above). The food here is great, though!
- For Mexican, try Cactus (there's a handful of them - all are great, but my favs are Alki, Madison Park, or Kirkland). Brunch, lunch, dinner - all great
- Revel for a (very) unique brunch or dinner - don't be intimidated by the menu... it's one of those "I don't even understand what any of this means?! but then it arrives and it's to die for" type of places
- If you're feeling less adventurous, brunch at Portage Bay is super popular (make reservations)
- For a good view, grab a drink at Westward. If it's nice, there are some kayak rental places in the area
- Canoe through the arboretum
- If the Hawks, Mariners, or Huskies are in town, go to a game. Even if you aren't a fan, all 3 stadiums are awesome
- For a tough climb with the BEST reward (aka the best photo opps around), hike Rattlesnake Lake/Ledge. It's about 45 mins east of Seattle
- Visit Snoqualmie Falls and if you're up for a short hike, walk on down!
- While visiting the falls, have brunch at Salish Lodge. You MUST have a bloody mary.
- A little closer to Seattle than Rattlesnake but equally difficult (give or take a little), try the hike to Poo Poo Point
- For an easy hike, Denny Creek
