|One of the bonuses of staying in a vacation rental home is having access to a full gourmet kitchen. The problem is, you don’t always know which grocery stores are best.
Of course you’ll want to experience Seattle’s robust restaurant scene while you’re here, but there are times that you don’t want to eat out and would prefer a home cooked meal in your cozy vacation rental home. That’s where knowing the local grocery stores comes in handy.
