A casual Sunday typically means taking it easy, and staying close to home. It’s a day to recharge and prepare for the week ahead. I love the pause this day gives just before things pick up again for the next 5 days. However, sometimes, it feels good to switch it up!
When my husband announced he had some business to tend to near Seattle, I jumped at the opportunity for baby and I to join him. I’m not a big city girl by any means, but I do love to visit from time to time. Since my husband had a few hours dedicated to work, we only had about 4 hours to be tourists, which I found to be just enough time to fit in a couple of fun activities!
We took our time as we strolled through Pike Place Market. We checked out local merchant crafts and sampled goodies. We had such a great time taking in the sights, and seeing all we could see.
Pike Place Market is one super extra-large unique farmer’s market. There is live entertainment performed by street artists, and even school-aged children! It is a lively place complete with spectacular harbor views. There is a lot to take in, and with so much to see, you definitely work up an appetite! Especially seeing all the wonderful locally sourced seafood.
Our short trip felt complete since we were able to witness the famous “fish throwing.” This takes playing with your food to a whole other level! Needless to say, after walking around for several hours, we were famished! And what else does a Seattle tourist sit down to eat while visiting? Salmon, of course! Located just across the street from the market is a swanky, yet family-friendly seafood joint, Seatown Seabar. Yuuummmm!
This surely was an incredible trip. We definitely made the most out of those 4 hours. I’m sure we’ll be back soon to re-discover the city in a whole new light. We’ve gone to Pike Place a few times before, and there’s always something different to check out.
