We decided to take my parents on a nice weekend getaway and thought Seattle would be the perfect place. They've been through a lot the past few months so we wanted to go somewhere fun, easy and relaxing. My mom loves big cities and cold weather and my dad has been wanting to visit the Pacific Northwest for a long time. We booked a fabulous Airbnb in the heart of downtown so it was really easy to get around via Uber. We did all the fun touristy things like Chihuly Gardens, the Space Needle, Seattle Aquarium, and Pike Place Market. Of course, getting coffee at the first Starbucks and visiting the Starbucks Roastery was at the top of her list (she's a Starbucks fanatic). We even got to visit one of my best friends from high school that has lived in Seattle now for 10 years. My parents don't really travel on their own so it was fun to go to a new place and I hope we can take them on many more trips.
