There’s nothing quite like summertime in Seattle. The warm temperatures combined with the cooler air from the sea makes the Emerald City one of the best locations to spend the warmest time of the year. As the one of the hottest seasons of summer in Seattle comes to an end, it’s important to keep your planner filled with a few adventures to keep your spirits warm as we head towards fall. Check out our recommendations for fall-friendly travel delights to get the most out of the sun before we begin the official countdown to winter!
Water: Cruising isn’t just for your grandparents anymore, especially when you’re onboard with Celebrity Cruises. More than 2,000 bottles of fabulous red wine displayed so majestically you have to pick your jaw up off the floor? Check. Bars literally covered in ice serving unlimited wine and spirits? Of course. The best part? You can take off right from the comfort of your own city! Cruises bound for Alaska and Canada take off from Pier 91, conveniently located between Interbay and Magnolia. Craving a different destination? Celebrity Cruises take off from countless ports throughout the world – check out their offerings here.
Land: If you’re worn out by the endless happenings of summer, consider having a relaxed autumn adventure right in your own backyard. Thompson Hotels opened with great fanfare in June thanks to their amazing culinary offerings, stylish rooms and the gorgeous views from their rooftop bar, Nest. Be sure to snag reservations for Nest – it’s been rumored that getting a seat at the scenic bar can be difficult for hotel guests and bar purveyors alike. Learn more and book your stay here.
Air: You’ve had it. You’re tired of packing luggage and just want to sleep in your own damn bed for once. We get it. Keep your adventure short and make it home before dark by hitting the air, literally. Pacific Parasail is located on the Tacoma waterfront and offers a unique view of the Puget Sound through parasailing adventures that promise if you get wet, it’s free. Rides last for about 15-20 minutes and patrons have the option to purchase upgrades including video and photo services. Don’t delay – rides only run through the end of September. Learn more here.
