My winter adventure begins at the affordable Extended Stay America Tukwila, after my arrival at the Seatac airport the evening before. A short morning walk to the Westfield Southcenter has me shopping for a coat, hat and scarf to keep me warm during my Seattle Southside stay. I hop aboard the Link Light Rail for a trip to explore downtown Seattle. I check out the views from the Space Needle. Ride the Monorail. Discover the wonders of Chinatown. Walk along the waterfront at Pike Street Market exploring all the shops. Ride the Duck by land and water Holiday Lights tour. Day one of my adventure ends at Bull Pen Pub Bar & Grill with some karaoke fun. A day trip by Express Bus to Chrystal Mountain has me spending all day skiing. Dinner at the Rainforest Cafe ends day two. Picking up a rental car I drive to Redondo Beach - Des Moines. Bundling up I take a walk along the boardwalk watching seagulls fly overhead as I take in the breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Local residents suggest a fresh seafood meal at Salty's of salmon. With my sweet tooth craving chocolate I drive to Tacoma to the home of the Brown & Haley Factory Outlet for some Almond Roca and a 24ct box of Peanut Butter Mountain Bars for myself and a few friends back home. Before heading to the airport for my flight home I stop to try my luck at the Great American Casino, ending my vacation with fond memories of a great winter adventure in Seattle Southside, Washington State.— Joseph
