Long Weekend: Seattle

Before our little one arrives, we've been sneaking in some long weekend getaways and checking out cities we've never explored. Seattle was on our list, and it was an awesome trip! We had a jam-packed agenda, but with some comfy shoes and lots of snack breaks, we managed to see everything on our list.

Monday
  • Grab coffee and breakfast to go and start the day on Lake Union- kayaking is a fun way to see the floating houses!
  • Stroll through Gas Works park then head back into downtown.
  • After lunch, spend a little time (and maybe a little money) at Nordstrom- the flagship store is in Seattle.
  • Enjoy a fabulous dinner before packing your bags and heading home in the morning.
