Exploring Downtown Seattle

Our holidays in Seattle always include an excursion downtown with a new adventure every time. We’ve had dinner at the top of the Space Needle and a ride on the huge ferris wheel, a tour around the city on the Duck ride and an underground tour with a fascinating history of Seattle. We’ve been up the oldest elevator of the Smith Tower (which was once the tallest building west of the Mississippi). And of course, the famous Pike Place Market where vendors and artisans sell their wares.

Pike Place has a Crumpet Shop where they make the best and freshest crumpets on the planet! (And they’re vegan!) I also enjoyed some shopping (which I’ll show in future posts).

The Seattle Art Museum has a wonderful gift shop: artistic ties, lovely totes, beautiful scarves and more all made by local artisans.

We walked all day without getting tired and then 15 more blocks up Pike Street to 15th Avenue on Capitol Hill to Jean’s eco boutique.

Jean had a busy day at her store. She wore a lovely grey velvet jumpsuit. We were all hungry and enjoyed dinner at Wayward Vegan Cafe.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

    It is always wonderful to enjoy what you share about Seattle. That city is so interesting! Its urbanism, its stores, its artists, its markets … And to see you there with your modern and original looks, with those beautiful clothes, is something precious.

      It was a fabulous holiday! We’re home again with a myriad of photos and memories! Next post I’ll share a few photos by Lake Washington. After the crowds of people in the city, it’s so rejuvenating to retreat to the tranquility of nature. 🙂

      Thank you Valerie, it’s a trip to remember! I was happy to escape the harsh winter in Ontario for awhile and of course, spending time with my daughter is the reason I go to Seattle whenever I get a chance. 🙂
