Seattle To Do & Eat
Updated: Jun 5
I'm grateful to have a job that allows me to work remote part of the time (when I'm not running around NYC for video shoots). Since our holiday plans for Seattle fell through, we decided to rebook the trip to work remote and spend some time with my husband's family (who I adore). We worked east coast time during the week, which meant after 2pm the day was open for activities and exploring!
We recently visited Seattle this past June, so it was nice to be there at a slower pace and not have many plans. We of course got some fun in exploring and checking out new restaurants. Read my last post (Explore Seattle, WA) for more details on the go-to spots if you're going to Seattle for the first time!
Bainbridge Island: More in my last post.
Discover Park: Located at 3801 Discovery Park Blvd, Seattle, WA 98199
This is something fun (and free!) to do if you want to explore more of Seattle. Located about 10 minutes from downtown, you can walk around the park and check out the beautiful pebbled beach and mountain views. Also if you're a pup lover, this is the spot to go because there's so many cute fluffs running around.
Freemont Vintage Mall: Located at 3419 Fremont Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103
If you know me, you know I'm a sucker for a thrift/vintage store. Walking around, it seemed like there was one room after another of retro clothing, gold mirrors, vintage posters and even Frida Kahlo canvases (so it was a sign).
Pike Place Market: More in my last post.
The Pink Door: Located at 1919 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101
Obvious by the name, I've been wanting to dine here for a couple of years. Since it's located right inside Pike Place Market, this restaurant is one of the most sought-after places to go. It's known for its Italian cuisine, burlesque shows & trapeze entertainment. While the experience and ambiance was really cool and trendy, the food was definitely not the best I've had in Seattle. If you're willing to pay extra $$$ for the experience and location, I would say it's a fun experience overall.
BA|SA: Located at 101 Winslow Way E, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
One of our favorite spots in Bainbridge (Bruciato) was closed the day we went, so we ended up at BA|SA. We went for lunch on a Friday and were on a waiting list, so you know it's good. They have incredible Thai cuisine and great cocktails.
Terra Plata: Located at 1501 Melrose Ave, Seattle, WA 98122
We went here on our last night and it was my favorite meal this time around. It's a trendy new restaurant surrounded by a strip of other bars, restaurants and cafés, so you can spend some time walking around in the area. Their vibe is sustainable farming and shared plates. The staff went above and beyond during the entire meal and everything was fantastic.
