We spent the only night of our winter 2018 Seattle trip at Courtyard Seattle Downtown/Lake Union. The best feature of this hotel is its location by the lake.
Pasta Freska is a very different Italian restaurant near Lake Union in Seattle. There are no menus or taking orders here. The cooks will decide all the dishes for you!
Starbucks is probably not a destination on its own in Seattle, but its flagship Starbucks Reserve Roastery at 1124 Pike Street is worth a visit. It is quite different from the local Starbucks we see everywhere.
Woodland Park Zoo is the first zoo I’ve ever visited in North America. Visiting a zoo has been on my to-do list for a long time, and this zoo didn’t disappoint me!
The scenic Chuckanut Drive, which follows closely the coast of Puget Sound, is a great alternative when driving from Bellingham to Burington. The views were great even when it was cloudy.
