We were lucky enough to catch Seattle on a sunny weekend in April and had a jam-packed two days of delicious food and awesome sights. A bunch of friends and family have asked me for recs, so here are my top spots from our weekend in Seattle.
Places To Drink
Places To Eat
Market Grill — This was one of the best salmon sandwiches I’ve ever had. It’s a little stall in the heart of Pike Place on the main floor. If you’re exploring Pike Place Market, this is a great to stop for a bite.
Stone Way Cafe — Hands down the best breakfast burrito I’ve had and the atmosphere is super laid back.
Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream — Delicious ice cream with super unique flavors, but the line can be pretty long.
Things To Do
Pike Place Fish Market —Home to the very first Starbucks, the hustle and bustle of the fish market is quite the experience. If you’re adventurous, ask the salmon vendor if you can catch a salmon! Like I said above, check out Market Grill for a salmon sandwich if you’re hungry.
Seattle Great Wheel —Walking distance from Pike Place Market, the Great Wheel is on the wharf and gives you great views of the Seattle Seahawks stadium, the Pacific Ocean, and the city.
Space Needle —The iconic 600 foot Space Needle overlooks the entire city and ocean. There can be quite a wait to get to the observation deck but it’s a must-see. There’s also a rotating restaurant at the top if you want to grab a bite overlooking the city.
Chihuly Garden —This art museum was breathtaking. Right next to the Space Needle, the Chihuly Garden is filled with glass blown sculptures the size of entire rooms; words or pictures can’t do it justice. If you have time to kill before or after the Space Needle, you won’t regret visiting this place.
West Point Lighthouse — If you want a few hours to take in serene views I’d suggest heading out to this lighthouse. It can be quite a trek getting out there but once you’re there it’s all worth it. The lighthouse is very picturesque and the beach is a nice break from the city.
