There’s nothing quite like the great outdoors in the Pacific Northwest.

There’s so much to see and do that planning your trip might seem overwhelming. Fear not, for we have created the perfect itinerary to see the highlights all within a few days!
By now you will be famished, so head down to one of the oldest public farmers markets in the United States and snack your way through the booths. There’s so much to do at Pike Place Market, it would be hard to see it all. Take a selfie in front of the legendary (and unsanitary) Gum Wall, sample some of Seattle’s finest cheese at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese, grab a latte at the first Starbucks, and witness the iconic tossing of the fish at the Pike Place Fish Market.
Grab dinner at Elliott’s Oyster House on the waterfront and enjoy the views of the Seattle Great Wheel and the ferry boats coming and going and then hop on the light rail back to your Seattle Southside hotel for a good night’s rest. You’ll need it for Day 2!
When you get back in town, enjoy a relaxing evening of elegance and deliciousness at Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar. Nestled on 11 acres of restored wetlands and attached to the Cedarbrook Lodge, this eco-friendly, intimate dining venue is perfect for a romantic dinner. Boasting options that are both locally grown and sustainably sourced, one can feel at peace dining on brown butter roasted delicate squash and Neah Bay sablefish.
Just across the street from Westfield Southcenter sits a thrill-seekers dream, iFLY Seattle. iFLY features a 10-story vertical wind tunnel, designed to create the perfect indoor skydiving experience. It may seem intimidating for someone who has never attempted anything quite so daring, but with an age range of 3 to 103, iFLY is fun for everyone!
After a long day of fun, there’s no better way to end your Seattle Southside adventure than at Des Moines Beach Park. Nestled along Puget Sound, this hidden gem offers stunning views and a relaxing, peaceful setting. Walk along the beach or one of the many trails, then catch one of the most breathtaking sunsets in the Pacific Northwest.
