A Whirlwind Weekend in Seattle

If you were to come visit for a whirlwind vacation:

1. I’d take you out for fish and chips at Ivar’s on the Pier. You
can order whatever you want, but I’d strongly recommend the Halibut and
Chips! They use fresh-caught seafood (literally, the restaurant is right
on the pier). A local favorite!
2. Seattle is famous for a reason! You shouldn’t miss the
opportunity to buy a Seattle CityPass: it’s a book of tickets for all the
famous attractions including a ride to the top of the Space Needle,
Experience Music Project, the Museum of Flight, the Pacific Science
Center, the Seattle Aquarium and more all for $60!
3. Calories don’t count on vacation, so we’ll stop and grab a treat
at Top Pot doughnuts. The home of such deliciously new combinations
like cherry blossom doughnuts.
4. The weather is not great, yet we get
outdoors whenever we can. We’ll take advantage of one of our gorgeous
days at Gasworks Park right on Lake Union. Perfect views of the
 mountains, lakes, and Seattle skyline!
5. The locals would stone me if I didn’t show you Post Alley at
Pike Place Market. The most charming little alley with adorable shops
and cozy restaurants, complete with cobblestone streets and gorgeous
architecture.
6. You didn’t ask, but I’ll tell you anyway that Nordstrom was
founded here and a trip to Seattle wouldn’t be complete without visiting
the Nordstrom Flagship store! We’re talking 6 HUGE FLOORS of Nordstrom
goodness that is any girls dream. We’ll {window} shop the day away and
get lost in the gorgeousness. Trust me. It’s heaven.
