This morning we booked our hotel for our Seattle vacation in August! I’ve been wanting to do this trip ever since James and I first met, since his sister and her family live there. Plus, it’s an awesome area that I think I’ll love.
We met in the summer of 2006 and planned to go in the summer of 2007. We decided instead to go to San Diego that year and do Seattle in 2008. But in 2008 I graduated college and got a new job, so I couldn’t take vacation time. So here we are in 2009 (our 3 year anniversary is on Wednesday), finally doing it!
We booked a hotel that appeared to have a nice central location, plus hotels.com had it on sale, 40% off. We got a really good deal.
But, now that I’m looking into the neighborhood, I’m realizing that it’s not just a nice location. It’s the location. Central to everything. We’ll be able to walk to:
and all of downtown Seattle!
And if we want to, we’re also walking distance to the Pacific Science Center, Monorail, Seattle Children’s Museum, and a ton of stuff within the Seattle Center.
That’s loads of money saved on parking downtown, plus much more fun and easy. I can’t wait!
We’ll be in Seattle for 5 days, with a day trip to Vancouver, British Columbia (my first trip to Canada, yay). Then we’ll be in Portland, Oregon for 2 days on the way back.
Now, I'm off to find a hotel in Portland!
