Things to Do in Tacoma, Washington

I’m embarrassed to say that despite living in the state of Washington for three years we have not made the hour-long drive south to explore Tacoma. When I saw Fleetwood Mac was going on tour and performing at the Tacoma Dome, I booked us amazing seats relatively near the stage for the concert and roundtrip …

Day Trip to the Kitsap Peninsula

Despite living a hop, skip, and jump away from the Edmonds-Kingston ferry terminal, we rarely find ourselves making our way over to the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. In our three years living here, we’ve only ventured over a handful of times with activities ranging from taking a long bike trip to the coast, exploring Olympic …

Roadtrip: The Oregon Coast

We had an amazing motorcycle trip planned for Labor Day weekend that involved riding from Seattle to Abbottsford, British Columbia, over to the Okanogan Valley for a day of wine tastings around Penticton, and then a loop down through Winthrop and over the North Cascades pass to return home. Unfortunately by Labor Day the West …

Bike Trip to Bellingham

Despite having visited Fairhaven multiple times, both on our own as well as with family and friends who have come to visit, we haven’t spent much time exploring Bellingham. Our one experience included popping in a couple of breweries our friends recommended at the conclusion of our journey up Chuckanut Drive, but it had been …

Local Adventure: Kayaking and Margaritas

If you happen to find yourself in Seattle on a beautiful, warm, sunny day (highly likely during the months of June-August) and are looking for ways to take advantage of the outdoors, I recommend you make your way to Agua Verde in the University District. This awesome spot on the northern shore of Lake Union …

Local Adventure: West Seattle

For the past three years we’ve been talking about getting over to West Seattle to check out Alki Beach and the many foodie spots our friends and work colleagues have recommended to us since we moved to Seattle. That’s a crazy long time, but we just haven’t been able to make it a priority! To …
