How To Enjoy The Perfect Solo Daycation In Seattle
While it may seem as if there’s nothing to do in Seattle with the state’s strict COVID-19 measures, you are wrong. There are still safe ways for you to enjoy the winter months in the city.
Here’s a guide on how to enjoy the perfect solo daycation in Seattle.
1. Bundle Up And Grab A Cup Of Joe
Winter in Seattle is no joke. Grab a cup of hot coffee from Starbucks to start your day. However, this isn’t your normal Starbucks.
Visit Starbucks Reserve Seattle for an upscale coffee house aesthetic. Located just blocks away from the original Starbucks on Pike Place, you can witness your favorite roast actually coming to life. Pro Tip: Pair a dark chocolate mocha with a slice of raisin sfilatino bread.
2. Head To The Slopes
Located just 40-minutes away from the city, The Summit at Snoqualmie still remains one of the best ski resorts in Seattle. Skiing not your winter sport of choice? No worries, try out Snow Tubing, Snowshoeing or even a private snowboarding lesson.
3. Have A Taste Of Comfort
Junebaby, a Black-owned southern comfort restaurant, has been named ‘Seattle’s best restaurant’ three years in a row. Its authentic southern cuisine mixed with the city’s influence, put this restaurant on the map. While COVID-19 restrictions are still in place, Junebaby is only open for takeout or delivery. Pro Tip: Try the catfish and grits with the homemade biscuits and cane syrup.
4. Check In and Enjoy The View
Centrally located in front of Pike Place Market and the popular Puget Sound waterfront, Thompson Seattle is a luxury boutique hotel with stunning views of some of Seattle’s landmarks. Pull back the curtains and unwind in the King Bed Deluxe Water View Suite.
5. Enjoy a Late Night Snack
The day wouldn’t be complete without a late-night snack from R&M Dessert Bar. Open until 11pm, R&M desserts are all available through delivery apps like Uber Eats, making this treat one you can experience from your hotel room. Pro Tip: Try the apple tart and chocolate brownie sundae.
