Top 5 Must-See Spots Around Seattle

The Denver Look Takes Seattle

Hi babies! I’ve just returned from a long weekend in Seattle and it’s back to work for me. I had such a lovely time exploring all the Washington has to offer that I felt inspired to put together a quick list for you of my very own personal recommendations of the top 5 must-see spots around Seattle!

Alki Beach

Alki Beach is just a quick 20 minute trek from Downtown Seattle but you’ll feel like you’ve really left the city all together. This area is full of cute little beach-front restaurants and shops with more than enough options for activities along the beach. Plus the beach-front views of Downtown are for sure a sight to see!

Pike Place Market leaves nothing left desired with live entertainment, plenty of vendors, views and restaurants to choose from. I highly recommend checking out the Pink Door Restaurant while you’re down here. They have the most delish Italian style bites and such a beautiful atmosphere. Look closely… The front entrance is a simple, unmarked pink door!

Lake Washington

Almost no words for this one! Lake Washington definitely lives up to the hype, it’s positively stunning. I was fortunate enough to enjoy the day out on a boat. I hope you can do the same, it’s totally worth it babes!

New Castle was one for the books folks, put this spot on your list for sure! The views are to die for… You can see Downtown Seattle, Lake Washington, Branbridge Island, The Olympics Mountain Range, and more… All from the exquisite restaurant at the New Castle Golf Club. Don’t skip this one!

Bainbridge Island

East coast vibes on the west for sure… A great way to end a fun, exploratory weekend in this stunning state! Bainbridge Island is just a quick 20 minute ferry ride off of the coast of Seattle and the views are killer… The town is just as cute as a button!

Psttt… Pack a few extra dresses! All that rain you’re hearing about… yeah, that’s just a rumor.

XOXO, Olivia Merrill
