Seattle is Fabulous in Fall
Travelers in the know love to settle into the Emerald City after the summer crowds have parted. There are few sights more breathtaking than the golds, oranges, and reds of autumn, set against the grand backdrop of Mount Rainier. While Seattle boasts four incredible, action-packed seasons, fall is truly a spectacular time to visit.
Imagine the perfect vacation day. Crisp temperatures, a little sunshine, and a gorgeous locale set the stage for an adventure. You awaken to a cool breeze from an open window. You drink your morning coffee on the patio of your vacation home. There’s no rush – drink another cup, if you please. After breakfast, gather your group for a mid-morning visit to a local pumpkin patch. Later, wander to Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle for lunch, shopping, and a flying-fish extravaganza. Relax at a nearby park, where you can appreciate the stunning beauty of the foliage and the vibrancy of the city. Cap the evening at the Teatro ZinZanni Dinner Theatre, or reinvigorate your senses at the Seahawks night game.
Whether you prefer to plan or explore, the opportunities to experience Seattle’s best are endless.
Views for Days
Similarly, Seattle’s remarkable fall foliage is not to be missed. Seward Park on Lake Washington offers a striking view of vivid autumn leaves, complemented by crystal waters. Olympic National Park covers endless miles of wooded wonderland, which, with mountains, blue-green lakes, and fields of flowers, feels more like movie magic than reality. Hike on Mount Rainier or Mount Baker at Snoqualmie National Forest, from which you can see the fabulous sites of Seattle and the incredible wonder that is the Pacific Northwest. Stop by Kerry Park in the idyllic Queen Anne Park area, which offers unbelievable views from one of the loveliest spots in the city.
Get Your Tickets
And, of course, it’s imperative to book a trip around the Seattle Great Wheel and a ticket to the Space Needle before journeying back to your fabulous vacation rental home. It’s been a good day in Seattle, my friend.
