Things to do in Seattle you’ll love
With a location in the heart of downtown Seattle, any kind of trip you seek while staying at the Alexis Hotel can be yours. For those on a romantic rendezvous, we’ve got getaway ideas with spark.
It’s well known that one surefire way to the heart is through the stomach — so start your date night with all kinds of stomach-pleasing treats on the Gourmet Seattle Tour from Savor Seattle. You’ll learn about the city’s culinary history while noshing on upscale comfort food paired with beverages. Next, catch a show at the Seattle Symphony or 5th Avenue Theatre before ending the evening at the Bookstore Bar over house-made cocktails and conversation.
Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, there’s plenty to do in Seattle for a pull-out-all-the-stops weekend getaway. For a memorable meal, make a reservation at Canlis, an institution since the ’50s and one of the only restaurants around that has a dress code. While looking out at Lake Union, you’ll enjoy a tasting menu of contemporary Northwest cuisine. Get an even better look at the lake on a sightseeing seaplane ride around the Emerald City. Back on land, watch the sun set from Gas Works Park or book a private tour of the Seattle Art Museum.
If you’re local to the area, pick a quirky activity you’ve never tried before. For a playful outing, the "Date Night" classes at Emerald City Trapeze let you get loose with a turn on the flying trapeze, followed by an acrobalance or trampoline class. Now’s also a great chance to visit one of the tourist attractions you’ve never gotten around to because you live here — perhaps you’ll take a spin on the Great Wheel, poke around at the fascinating exhibits at MOHAI, or step into a photographer’s dream at Chihuly Garden and Glass.
