Seattle

Know before you go

  • Bring an umbrella- it does rain. We do use umbrellas, no matter what a guidebook tells you. Also rain boots are a pretty big staple.
  • ATM and Credit Cards are accepted most places. Chase is one of the major banks in Seattle.
  • Check out Redtricycle.com for weekly events and reviews on fun kid stuff to do

While there

  • If you want to travel on the cheap, there are a multitude of parks to visit. Check out Things to Do In Seattle for all of the sights the kids and I are checking out in the area.

Transportation

  • Buses- a bus trip will now cost you US$2.25 (check rates as they do change almost every year). You can get a transfer if you need to change buses to get to your location. You must use exact change when riding the bus. You can also buy a bus ticket book at drugs stores and other locations.
  • Taxis- don't bother unless you are staying downtown. You won't find them in too many neighborhoods.
  • Car- A car is almost a must if you want to explore outside of the city. Definitely budget in a rental car if possible.

  • Salish Lodge and Spa (Part 1) — Autumn rejuvenation

    October 22, 2013

    Mothers don’t know when to call it quits. It’s not in our nature. From the moment we get pregnant we are supposed to love and protect our baby. With each new child our love grows. Unfortunately, so do our exhaustion levels.  Sometimes you just have to call it a day, pack your bags and run […]

  • Mini Break (Parents): Kid-Free Wine Weekend in Tri-Cities, WA

    September 18, 2013

    Driving down I-90 we were surrounded by trees and mountains. As we passed through the Cascades the sun, and arid landscape welcomed us with open arms. Washington may be the Evergreen State, but eastern Washington is generally far from it. Maybe that’s why this is prime grape country and the perfect place for a little […]
