DescriptionSome places have the audacity to want it all, but let's be honest, who are they kidding? You can't have a cosmopolitan city with all of the shopping, dining, and arts you could possibly want AND nationally recognized teams in just about every possible sport AND immaculate natural beauty all in one place. Well, ladies and gentlemen, Seattle dreamt it and Seattle has achieved it. It's like the kid in school who was good at everything. The one you wanted to hate, but just couldn't, because, well, being his friend made your life a whole lot more pleasant. And life is more pleasant in Seattle, Washington. Seattle has everything you could want from a city--trend setting food (the likes of which you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else), family friendly museums, and, of course, plenty of shopping. But where most cities sacrifice nature for cement, Seattle is still surrounded by lush forests (including the United States' only temporal rainforest) and canoe-ready lakes. The fresh air is not only revitalizing, it creates a perfect venue for outdoor markets and open air festivals.

One favorite to check out is The Needle and Thread in Capitol Hill, this was once a speakeasy and is still as hidden. The food is great and the beverages, all ingredients prepared fresh in front of you, are sure to delight.
Do you need to wander the great outdoors? Hop on the ferry and venture to the Olympic National Park via Bainbridge Island. Or, head down and surmount the southern volcanoes, Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens. Whichever direction you choose, a day trip will give you enough of a taste to want to see more!
Pikes Market is a good day trip...visit the floral market, shop for crafts, and eat, eat, eat! and, oh yes, the coffee...Starbucks and Seattles best on every corner will keep you wired so you can shop, walk, sightsee!

Seattle HAS IT ALL! The best of both worlds for any couple who likes to do different things; where some of the best restaurants in the country are located, along with every outdoor activity you can imagine. From climbing to rafting, biking and running, you can spend the morning working up an appetite and the afternoon tasting local wine and eating incredible dinners. It is a place where you can camp or spa. Seattle is a city of endless possibilities.

Another great destination to visit while in Seattle is Olympic National Park. It's a beautiful drive from Seattle and another destination on Jauntaroo.
