After a few days in Seattle, I’m realizing that this city pretty much has it all. Want a west-coast experience? Laid-back beaches abound. If you’re interested in the sea, the city offers an array of experiences like the free salmon ladder where you can watch fish swim upstream from the ocean one small waterfall at a time, and with docks and mariner’s museums, there’s enough here to hold your interest in oceanic matters for as long as your attention span. The city’s downtown area and Pioneer Market have a distinctly urban flavor with upscale shopping, art galleriers and public art installations, haute cuisine and brew-pubs, but to escape all that, a hidden free-to-the-public waterfall garden offers a welcome retreat. Even with the rain, the city is geared toward outdoor exploits, and city parks offer hiking trails through its verdant rainforest trees as well as children’s playgrounds. It’s easy to get around, and day-excursions can take you sailing, whale-watching, or to the nearby island where the quaint city of Victoria and its famous Butchart Gardens will charm you for several hours. As Washington state’s cultural capital and center of activity, the diversity in character and activity offering is astounding while naturally blending in to the social and geographical landscape.
Accommodations in the area vary from the affordable to the extravagant. From boutique hotels and exquisite and privately run inns and bed-and-breakfasts, Seattle also offers stays at trusted properties. The Seattle Marriott Waterfront (and several Marriott properties) provide the familiar Marriott guarantee for comfort and style. Hilton, Hyatt, Sheraton, and Westin all offer luxurious stays in fabulous locations for the traveler who wants to be in the middle of it all.
Though the pickings are slim for timeshare properties in Seattle, many abound in Washington state, where travelers can enjoy the cascade mountains and greenery that decks the hills of Washington’s coast year-round. Worldmark by Wyndham offers several properties alone, and Ocean Shores is a popular place for city dwellers to take a weekend away from the hubbub.
Summer is upon us, so especially if you have reward or trade points, don’t waste time and get yourself to this fabulous place that has so much to offer. (Just don’t forget your umbrella!)
