[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]ou’ve reached our Seattle travel blog category page. Posts you’ll find here will be a blend of specific Seattle places and things to do in Seattle mixed with some more broad Seattle posts about visiting the area. You’ll also find a little reminiscing about days gone by in Seattle from time to time. Seattle to me is “home,” though I live near, not in, Seattle these days.
If celebrity burials are your thing, the number of Seattle's famous dead denizens does come close to rivaling many larger, and older, cities. But we do have a few here, and they're worth visiting if you like cemeteries. Here's more about where to find the graves of Bruce and Brandon Lee, Jimi Hendrix, and Chief Sealth (Seattle), along with a listing of a few others with a more local claim to fame.
Autumn is here! Unfortunately, COVID-19 is also still here, which means a drastic change in our usual Autumn events and activities. Here are some ideas for things to do around here in Autumn 2020, as well as some events that have been canceled. Please feel free to share any events or activities that you've found worthwhile around here this Autumn.
Seattle is a literate city -- Seattle tops many lists for things such as "most well-read population," and "most literate city." And in 2017 Seattle earned the UNESCO "City of Literature" designation. Yes, Seattle is home to Amazon -- but Seattle is also home to some wonderful independent bookstoresl. Here are our favorite (independent) Seattle bookstores that we've visited -- both new and used.
This post was written before the COVID-19 outbreak, but I decided to let it run for Pi day as scheduled. In Seattle, we're eating our Pie on Pi Day at home in Seattle -- but when things pick back up these are some great places to go. Put them on your calendar for PIE day, which is January 23.
Whether it's Pi Day (in March) or Pie Day (in January) you're likely to see a lot of posts about pie. But any day is a good day for Pie.
So we're weighing in on our favorite go-to pie spots in Seattle and western Washington State.
While you might want to stay home and drink green beer with the spouse this St. Patrick's Day, there are some events -- virtual events, running races, and the like -- that are taking place in 2021. Here's our small but expanding list.
This "Seattle Vintage" post is husband's recollection of a funny short film from the 1970s which followed archaeologists excavating the remains of the ancient city of Seattle after an eruption of Mount Rainier.
This is mixed in with my own memories of the now-long-gone Seattle Center Fun Forest.
Seattle is home to some great mountain biking and some of the best beginner mountain bike trails in the Pacific Northwest. This is a sponsored post from evo -- a Seattle based retailer that specializes in outdoor equipment...mountainbikes and more!
When you're stuck at home and can't get into Seattle what do you do? Read about it! Here are some great (or possibly great) fiction books that are going to fill my reading list during stay-at-home order time -- and likely after that!
