I know everyone says it rains all year in Seattle - but the Seattle I experienced over the Labor Day weekend was BEAUTIFUL. It was sunny and in the high 60s, which to me, is the perfect weather! 🌞
So this trip was completely spontaneous - it was only decided on Friday afternoon that Seattle was happening. 3 days in Seattle - how much could we possibly squeeze in? A LOT.
First thing on the agenda was of course - none other than the infamous Pike Place Market. But first things first, cawfee ☕️ Teehee.
There's a cute little coffee shop on Second Avenue, by the Kimpton hotel (where I stayed) called Moore Coffee Shop. Searching for cute lattes with coffee art? I don't know about you guys but I'm always on a constant hunt for cute coffee. Check this place out!
They have an amazing Horchata latte and the best latte designs I've ever seen :)
What's fun to is they always make you a surprise design.
Next stop, Pike's Place!
Okay, so I have a pretty cool Farmer's Market in Little Italy (SD) every Saturday but it pales in comparison. Pike's Public Market is open all week!!! And they've got a pretty impressive selection ranging from local produce to artisan jewelry to baked goods to flowers and fish - it's really quite the scene. The whole street is blocked off for these vendors and us pedestrians and tourists ✌️
Pictured above is an ingenious invention called the "Quaffle."
Yup. That's its name! It's a croissant waffle - I mean, need I say more?!
Pretty Snaps around Seattle
Day 1 - Sightseeing
Seattle Great Wheel
Day 2 - Bumbershoot
So sentimental, not sentimental no
Romantic not discussing it
These days it comes, it comes, it comes, it comes, it comes and goes
Apparently this past Labor Day weekend's festival was Bumbershoot's 48th year! It was pretty epic. And yes, the tower you're seeing in the background is the infamous Space Needle. I got to see Cold War Kids, Portugal the Man and Phoenix 🎵 Not to mention, the night before (Saturday) went to see Foo Fighters 🎸 at Safeco Field where the Mariners play! ⚾️ They were LEGENDARY - my favorite song they sang (trust me, there were a LOT of good ones) was "Times Like These."
A Little Nature does the Soul a WHOLE Lotta Good
Day 3 - Snoqualmie Falls
To top it all of, day three was spent immersed in nature. Took a drive up to Snoqualmie Falls (about a 40 minute drive) from Downtown. I don't know if you guys have heard of Turo - but if you haven't, check them out! They're essentially the Airbnb for cars. And you can rent luxury cars at great rates. Needless to say, I drove a Porsche convertable 😍 it made for a fast and breeeezy drive 🚗💨
Behold, Snoqualmie Falls!
So that pretty much sums up my 72 hours in Seattle, folks!
I must say, this last-minute spontaneous trip turned out to be one of the best planned. Funny how that works, huh?! 🙊
Stay tuned for more upcoming adventures!
