Seattle Adventures // Pike Place Market

seattle-1
I realized that I have yet to post about our trip to Seattle (with the exception of my birthday), so here I am with the first installment of our adventures! With being sick when we got home and adjusting back to work, things have been a bit crazy! I haven't even started school yet or began my supplemental college application, so we shall see how things go when all of that is added in as well ;)

Anyway, I thought I would start with our time exploring Pike Place Market! We ended up coming here a few times throughout our trip since we really enjoyed it. It was definitely a zoo here with all of the people still soaking up the holiday break! I had seen so many photos of the iconic Pike Place Market (especially this sign!), so it was really cool to actually be here myself :)

During our time in Seattle, I always loved the views of Puget Sound and all of the boats and such. We obviously have a huge bay here, but there is just something different about the views of the water here! So beautiful.seattle-4
We opted to take a 2-hour tour of the market with a company called Savor Seattle. It was a great time and really helped us to understand the history of the market and its purpose, which we definitely wouldn't have learned just wandering around on our own. We also got to try a lot of little bites to eat from vendors in the market area, like clam chowder, seafood bisque, mini doughnuts, Opal apples, tea, smoked salmon, and crab cakes.seattle-5
Our tour guide was really funny and kept our interest the entire time, which was definitely nice. We were also able to find a Groupon for the tour, so I recommend looking for one before you book to save a lot of money!seattle-6 seattle-7
We decided to visit the market again on our last day in Seattle since there were still some things we wanted to do like eat fish & chips and oysters (well Dai did anyway haha seafood is not my thing), grab some mini cinnamon & sugar doughnuts, and get some Opal apples to take home because they are the best! Never have I been so excited about apples.seattle-8 seattle-9
So there you have it! Our little visit to Pike Place Market. Looking through these photos really makes me miss Seattle! I hope we get to visit it again sometime, maybe this time in summer :)

I know I haven't been around on the blog much lately, but I am hoping to nail down more of a routine to ensure that I get my blogging time in. Sometimes I am just too tired at the end of the day to even think about working on my laptop! Well, anyway, you will see much more of me this week :)

Hope everyone has a great start to their week!

Looks like such a fun place! I've always wanted to go to Seattle. Amazing photos, by the way! Can't wait to see the rest of the trip!

This makes me miss Seattle! I stayed in an Airbnb that was about 20 minutes away from the Pike Market and downtown shopping which made everything perfect for someone that doesn't drive around town. I miss the clam chowder but I hate the line ups for that store!

I'm taking a trip to Seattle in April and Pike Place Market is definitely on my list of spots to check out - especially after your post about it :)

Jess said...

I've never been, but this definitely makes me want to go!

As if Grey's Anatomy and Starbucks wasn't enough of a reason to warrant a trip to Seattle, these photos sealed the deal!

Jess said...

It really is! I hope you get to go some time :)

Jess said...

Thank you, thank you my dear! It definitely is!

Jess said...

That's awesome! We also stayed at an Airbnb that was a little over a mile from downtown and was right next to the Space Needle. It was the perfect location! Haha yeah there definitely was a line at the chowder place.

Jess said...

That is so great!! You're going to have the best time and hopefully the weather will be nice! Stay tuned because I just may have a few more things for you to add to your list :)

Jess said...

Yes, you really should some time! Seattle and Pike Place Market are super cool places.

Jess said...

Haha so true!! Hopefully you will get to go some time in the near future :)

Looking through these photos makes me miss the West coast and our long drives and trips on the weekends!
I love Pike Place Market and we also always come there once again at the end of the visit to stock up on the treats to bring home.

I've wanted to go to Seattle my entire life because of the music scene! Looks amazing
