Seattle City Guide + What I Wore

Hey guys! So the other week I flew from the Hamptons to Seattle to cheer on Drew as he pitched against the Seattle Mariners. Yes, I know, the flight was extremely long for just a two day trip...but guess what.. it was so worth it! From prior visits to Seattle, I knew that this city by the water was absolutely stunning. However, this trip I focused on finding the coolest and trendiest things to do that fit into our baseball schedule...and I absolutely cannot wait to share them with you. So, here we go!

What We Did:

  1. Seattle Museum of Modern Art: This was definitely my favorite thing we did during this trip. The Yayoi Kusama exhibit was incredible!! Yayoi Kusama is an 88 year old Japanese artist who uses bright psychedelic colors, dots, and repetitive shape to create incredible paintings and sculptures. If you ever have a chance to check out her exhibit anywhere across the world...I definitely recommend. Its truly worth seeing and extremely cool!
  2. Pikes Place Market: One of our favorite things to do in Seattle is head down to the market. A few years ago when Drew and I first met, he sent me a bunch of fresh salmon from the market to my house in San Francisco. Very unique but awesome gift!
  3. Baseball games: A majority of my time was spent at the ballpark (not surprisingly) since i was there to watch my husband pitch in the  Red Sox vs Mariners series. The Mariners stadium is really cool and best perk about it is that they offer sushi!

Where We Ate:

  1. Mr. West: This restaurant is super cool! I definitely recommend checking it out. Drew and I had breakfast here and it has the most delicious avocado toast I've ever had. The interior is very cool and the dishes are instagram-worthy. Apparently also a great spot for Happy hour.
  2. Urbane Restaurant: Great farm to table restaurant with breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour, dinner and dessert menus! We went to this restaurant for breakfast and we'll definitely go back next trip. 
  3. Pressed Juice: One of my favorite spots to grab a quick snack...especially when they have "pressed freeze". If you haven't had their frozen juice which basically just tastes like frozen yogurt or ice cream, I definitely recommend trying it asap. 
  4. El Gaucho: Great steakhouse that we often go to when we're in Seattle. Great date spot. 
  5. Free Banana Stand: This is a must!! I found this while I was on a run throughout the city and didn't realize that it was in Amazon headquarters at the time. The free banana stand is surrounded by super cool restaurants that are great for breakfast, lunch and happy hour. 
  6. Starbucks - Seattle is where Starbucks was first created so don't miss a chance to stop by one of the local shops or sign up for a tour of the Starbucks headquarters. 

Where to Drink:

  1. Capitol Cider: Stopped here quickly to check it out, however the baseball game went into extra innings so we arrived when it was closing. Looked like a really fun spot. Looking forward to checking it out again next time i'm in Seattle. 
  2. Lost Lake: Cool cafe and lounge. Open 24 hours!
  3. Havana Social Club: Cuban themed nightclub. Fun if you're looking to dance. 

Where to Sweat:

  1. Corepower Yoga
  2. Urban Yoga Spa
  3. SoulCycle 
  4. Paddle Board on the water 
  5. Hike (Seattle people love to hike)
