As I was finishing up my bus tour along the West Coast, my mom & sister decided to fly up and meet me on the last leg of my trip to Seattle, Washington. After my event was over, we spent the weekend exploring the city and gaining 10 pounds of ridiculously good food.
TEXAS GALS READY TO TAKE ON THE CITY.
Pike Place Market is obviously the place to be in Seattle. Lots of fresh produce, seafood, flowers, shopping, restaurants, taste testing, beer & wine, live music, and even located along the water!
My favorite part?
Just like you see in the movies - FISH THROWING.
They actually do it, y'all!
As you stroll through Pike Place Market, you will spot the first ever Starbucks coffee shop. The line was too long to wait in, so I figured a picture will just have to do. Oh boy, do I regret this decision... You MUST go.
If you're looking for another breakfast spot or place to grab a good coffee, Biscuit Bitch is the best. The name of the coffee shop already puts it on the top of the list. The coffee is really good, but the food is even better. What's even better than the food? The names of the breakfast sandwiches. Let's just say, they tie in with the name of the coffee shop. They are ridiculously hilarious...go check this place out!
Do not miss out on this chowder while you're here in Seattle.
Pike Place Chowder is THE best chowder I've ever had. No joke, I'm a chowder freak... go check this place out. The line might be extremely long, but once again, worth the wait.
The Gum Wall
This was honestly one of the coolest/grossest things I've ever seen. A massive wall filled with hundreds and thousands of pieces of gum. I mean, where do you find something like this? So gross but SO COOL!
Don't forget to buy a pack of gum to stick your very own piece on the wall!
I highly suggest taking the ferry to Bainbridge Island. The city view from the ferry is breathtaking and Bainbridge Island was fun to explore. The island had the most amazing ice cream shop called Mora Iced Creamery. The line was wrapped around the building but definitely worth the wait.
If you have an extra day for some fun, take a little road trip to Snoqualmie Falls. It's about 30 minutes outside of the city and a beautiful drive. This is a popular scenic attraction in Washington with a view of a 270' waterfall. After taking some fun pictures in front of the waterfall, we headed inside the lodge for a glass (or two) of wine.
Ok so I will end with Geraldine's Counter because it's one of my favorite brunch spots of all time. I ordered the apple whole wheat pancake of the day, and it did not disappoint one bit. The line will be out the door and the wait will be long, but the location is perfect to walk around and do a little shopping to kill some time. Enjoy!
