Visit these spots before heading out somewhere warm or tropical this winter season.

Dine: The décor at Pier 88 will get you in the mood for the beach and the authentic Louisiana style Cajun will make you concerned if that swimsuit will still fit. Customize your own boil and be sure to get an order of the Cajun fries.  Or sit under boughs of cherry blossoms at Miyabi Sushi for elaborate sushi rolls or a sashimi assortment of Alaskan sockeye, geoduck, kanpachi and shimaaji (jack mackerel).

Sip: Get on island time at Bahama Breeze with their famous Bahamarita, a rainbow of frozen deliciousness served with a shot of spiked cactus juice on the side. Why stop with just one flavor when you can have a margarita flight from Moctezuma’s?

Play: Imagine the warm wind rippling through your hair as you race other drivers at Sykart Indoor Racing.

Explore: Head to Redondo Beach for a walk down the boardwalk and enjoy the beauty of a Pacific Northwest beach.

Shop: If you plan to hit the greens while on vacation, make sure you have the right gear. Stop by Puetz or Foster’s Golf for an extra sleeve of balls or that visor you forgot to pack.

Stay: Hilton Garden Inn Seattle Airport serves up a cooked to order breakfast in a sleek and modern spot. Enjoy the indoor pool and get a great night’s sleep before you fly out.
