Recently, hubby and I took our 1-year-old twins to the Pacific Northwest to visit family and spent a few days in Seattle.
It's a great city for babies. There are lots of places to eat that have great food for mom and dad and a laid-back attitude about little ones. Tutta Bella Pizza, for instance, with several locations around the city, makes excellent thin-crust pizza and welcomes both adults and family groups.
There's also plenty to do that the whole family will enjoy and that fits in with a napping schedule. We went to the Ballard Locks to watch the salmon migrating and the boats locking in and out of Puget Sound, for walks in the Pike Place Market (word of advice, do this early in the day on a weekday if you’re handling a large stroller, because the crowds are thick on weekends), Pioneer Square and the Olympic Sculpture Park, and to check out the Troll under the Aurora Bridge in the Fremont neighborhood (comes complete with real Volkswagen Bug.) A highlight was the Bainbridge Island Ferry, which is a safe and inexpensive way to get kids out on the water for a short trip.
Our boys loved it!
If you ever heard about the FISH philisophy, it is from the Pike Place Market. You can watch this video to get an idea of what the market is like. (And you'll know why to go there early...)
