What’s better than a weekend away in Seattle? How about a weekend away in Seattle with some of your best girlfriends?!
Seattle, the Washington state capital city with a hip and trendy coffee culture, provides visitors with all the ingredients necessary to bake up a successful girls-only trip. To build your very own special getaway, after first booking your cheap Seattle flights, all you need to do is pick and choose from the following list!
Find spa hotels where you can relax in comfort and be wined, dined and pampered in style. Some options include:
The Pan Pacific Hotel: The Pan Pacific Hotel in Seattle offers high class amenities to its patrons, as well as the ability to take advantage of the Vida Spa. The spa offers a range of treatments to suit your personal needs, including an Ayurvedic massage, a Swedana steam wrap or a Shirodara oil drip.
The Alexis Hotel: The Alexis Hotel downtown Seattle is known as a luxury boutique accommodation option, offering a trendy yet classical vibe throughout the facility. Besides world class surrounds, the onsite spa provides a menu of in-room treatments. Choose from massage treatments, body treatments, facial treatments and hand/foot treatments.
The Four Seasons: The Four Seasons Hotel is not only known for its luxury accommodation, but also for its spa. The spa focuses on drawing from the natural elements of the nearby Puget Sound and offers massages, facials and body treatments.
Find the best places to shop in Seattle. After getting pampered at your spa hotel, you’ll be feeling good and wanting to look fabulous! Head out for a shopping trip to get you and your girls some new, fashionable outfits.
Pacific Place: Pacific Place is a premier shopping destination, lined with upscale shops and some of the best restaurants (you work up a good appetite shopping!). Choose from Coach, Ann Taylor, Guess And Victoria’s Secret.
Pike Place Market: If your girls are after a little fresh food and artisan beer and wine, the Pike Place Market may be the waterfront place to wander for a few hours. After shopping at all the eclectic shops, be sure to pick up a nice bottle or two to take back and enjoy with the girls on your hotel balcony.
Grab a show, watch a movie or score tickets to a live music gig. Depending on your group’s tastes and preferences, there are plenty of options to choose from. The Paramount Theater and 5th Avenue Theatre host a number of musical performances from the likes of Cats to Mamma Mia and the Blue Man Group. Key Arena is the home for big live music performances, pulling in acts like Keith Urban, Journey, Cirque du Soleil and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
What you pick is completely up to the type of girlfriend getaway you are looking for, but just remember that the most important part of the trip is just having the right people with you!
