Until recently, we thought our only option for a whale-watching experience was to drive north to outfitters in Edmonds or Anacortes, which is not an easy task for Seattleites with or without access to vehicles. Enter, the San Juan Clipper.
One of the best parts of living in Seattle—in addition to the spectacular summers here—is our proximity to amazing weekend adventures.
Seattle is a spectacular city to live in, but let’s face it: it’s lovely to take a little break every once in a while to recharge and rejuvenate too.
National Parks are one of America’s most unique treasures—sprawling protected lands that encourage adventure and exploring nature for everyone. Welcome to Joshua Tree, an area of desert wilderness named after the native yucca brevifolia in southeastern California. Winter does bring cooler temperatures, but there’s still quite a bit of sunshine.
Sheraton hotels enhance guests’ experiences, from Seattle to Sydney
This October, Sheraton Grand Seattle—located in the heart of downtown—hosted a week-long celebration to mark the completion of its stunning, multi-million-dollar transformation and to make announcements about the entire brand’s exciting revamp. The only U.S. destination on Sheraton’s “Heart for the City” experiential global tour, this iconic Seattle hotel (that boasts three decades of history within the community) seemed like a natural fit.
We’re less than a month away from 2019, and eagerly anticipating the most wonderful part of the year. Christmas trees, hot chocolate, cozy knits, and so many gifts. One of the best parts is giving and receiving gifts. Gifting is an art but can also become stressful at times.
Good eats, awesome trails, and small-town hospitality in Bentonville, AR
When Visit Bentonville invited us to come check out their city, best known as the birthplace of Walmart, I laughed. A lot. They preached about their award-winning chefs and up and coming “High South” food scene, and I rolled my eyes. Why would anyone from Seattle, arguably one of the best foodie cities in the country, go to Arkansas for the food (or for anything)? How many ways could they do meat and potatoes? Also, Bentonville is in the Ozarks which I’ve been binging on Netflix, and it looked scary as shit. I thought about being a typical Seattleite and passively ignoring the invite, but something caught my eye – this unassuming town had 163 miles of award-winning cycling trails weaving in and around it, making it a top destination for a biker’s vacation.
