Spending a Lot of Time in Washington

This year has been FULL of work travel and that means I have been keeping the I-5 nice and warm between Oregon and Washington. This fall I headed back to Seattle for another work trip and even though I manage to be up there a lot; I still find new things to love. Here are 5 new things that I fell in love with during this last trip.

  1. Homegrown
  2. Seattle Great Wheel
  3. Museum of Pop Culture
  4. Funko World Headquarters
  5. Tipsy Cow Burger Bar

Destination: Tacoma

Another work destination had me located in Tacoma for a few days. It was nice spending some time getting to know a place that I usually drive through to other locations. There was a lot of fun things to see and do while I was there and while I have posted before about the Museums, this time I found myself exploring another area. Here are 5 new things that I found that I would go back to in a heartbeat.

  1. Cook’s Tavern
  2. University of Puget Sound
  3. Hotel Murano  
  4. Old Town Tacoma
  5. Boathouse 19

The Charm of Bethany Beach

I had the most relaxing vacation this year going to a place that I have never been and therefore having no memories or people attached to it . . . Bethany Beach

It was the kind of vacation I needed this year. So many things are in transition in my life and the last thing I needed was to “relax” in my usual places. That might sound weird but not having any attachment to a place and no agenda was EXACTLY how I got my mind and then my body to relax.

I have only driven through a small portion of Delaware before this trip so I can safely say that I didn’t know Delaware until now. I was introduced to a lot of fun new things and foods. Below are my top 5 introductions.

What about your travels? Where have you been that cause your mind and body to relax?

  1. Dickey’s Frozen Custard: I don’t eat sugar right not but I did manage to get in a couple of bites. Let me tell you . . . it is sooo smooth and creamy. If you love custard, you need to try this place. 
  2. Ocean Kayaking: I have never been in a kayak before this trip and I was eager to give it a try. I am hooked! (Although I have a lot to learn before I can safely surf in the kayak)
  3. DB’s Fries: So . . . I also don’t eat potatoes right now but my friend promised me that it would be worth it to try a couple. She was right. 
  4. Finch Outdoor Furniture: Beautiful outdoor pieces made of durable poly.
  5. Cape May, NJ: I didn’t realize that you could take a ferry to New Jersey let alone see this ADORABLE coastal town.
