Good job marketing, Alaska Airlines! They had a 24-hour sale on Tuesday, April 9th and I grabbed Saver seats (basically not allowing you to select your seat) to Seattle, Washington for $120.00 round trip. I booked a 4-star hotel downtown about half a mile from Pike Place for $117.00. Watch out for resort fees. I will be paying an additional $23.00. It has been about four years since I have been to this city.
The town where Christian Gray from 50 Shades of Gray lived is up next. Bruce Lee is buried here and where Kurt Cobain, lead singer of Nirvana, and Courtney Love, singer and actress, lived.
I have done majority of the major tourist attractions like the Space Needle, the first Starbucks, flying fish at Pike Place, the waterfront and the like. Having a dear friend that lives there always helped me see neighborhoods like Ballard, visit local bars, their favorite cupcake shop, Cupcake Royale, and even see my first burlesque show where I bought a pretty cute bikini.
Trying to get a piece of the Space Needle.
I am looking forward to seeing friends, maybe connect with a fellow blogger and foodie and definitely get our tequila on for Cinco de Mayo.
Pre-yoga efforts and silly times.
I would love to know what are your must-see, eat, drink kind of spots. Please comment below!
Up next: heading back to Napa to visit Etude, Saintsbury and Hyde Family Vineyards.
