Going Local

Going Local :: Seattle

I am lucky enough to have a very good friend that lives in the Seattle, Washington area. I just recently returned from a visit and it was a blast.  We visited the usual tourist spots :: Seattle Center, The Great Wheel, Pike's Place.  We also ventured out to the great neighborhoods surrounding Seattle that have wonderful shops with local wares. Some neighborhoods we shopped were:: West Seattle, Capitol Hill, Ballard and Queen Anne. I've picked a few of my favorite items from both handmade + vintage shops in the Seattle area all with shops on Etsy.com.

In addition, to visiting Seattle, we also took a weekend trip to San Juan Island. If you've never ventured that  far north, it's definitely worth the trip.  Although remote it's very quaint and quite beautiful and I would love to go back and explore more. We stayed the weekend in Friday Harbor after an hour long ferry ride from Anacortes. If you are looking to get away and explore nature, then I highly recommend a trip to the San Juan Islands.
