If you read yesterday’s post HERE where I shared my complete travel guide to Vancouver, BC, then you know that my boyfriend and I continued our Thanksgiving adventure only a few short hours away in Seattle, WA. The weather continued to be rainy (and even colder), but like I previously mentioned, we loved it!
Where we stayed?
- We stayed at the Kimpton Alexis Hotel which was SO nice! It was in the perfect location downtown, only a few short blocks from the main street and Pike Place Market. The staff was so friendly, helpful, and even upgraded us to the top floor suite! They also have a free nightly happy hour and you can paint your own postcards they’ll send to anyone 🙂
What did we do + see?
- I had a few must-see items I really wanted to check off of my bucket list like the Space Needle and the Chihuly Museum. These are both a must-see while in Seattle! They’re incredible. Just be sure to book your tickets ahead of time online, because the day we wanted to go it was both sold out.
- Pike Place Market is also a must-see. The most time you can really spend here is an hour max, walking through the aisles of fresh seafood and flowers. Across the street is the 1st Starbucks (that of course had a line down the street), but was still neat to see nonetheless.
- BainBridge Island was a neat experience! The best part is taking the 30 minute ferry from Seattle to the Island. The views of the city and coastline are incredible! We didn’t spend much time on the Island itself but I recommend it!
How did we get around?
- In both Vancouver and Seattle we used Uber, which was SO nice and super affordable! We also did a ton of walking since everything is relatively close!
Where did we eat?
- Brunch: Lola (make a reservation ahead of time because this is THE best brunch in town; you must order the doughnuts!)
- Lunch/Dinner: We ate at Elliott’s Oyster House and had great clam chowder, had great sushi at Japonessa, and LOVED the atmosphere/wine/food at the Purple Cafe. The Pink Door was also highly recommended to us, however there were no reservations available while we were there.
Are you traveling anywhere for the holidays?! If so, I wish you safe travels and a very Merry Christmas filled with loved ones. I always like to remember that the holidays are all about presence and not just presents. XOXO!
