The lodge offers jetted tubs, fireplace and a romantic refuge after a long day of enjoying the outdoors. The lodge also offers a four course country breakfast featuring honey from their own apiary.

Nothing says Seattle quite like the image of the Space Needle. It has been used in movies and various other materials until it has been ingrained in our minds as representing Seattle. When visiting, you would be remiss if you did not take your sweetheart up to the top to get the bird’s eye view of the city. While you are at it, enjoy a meal at the Sky City restaurant. It will be a romantic experience sure to be appreciated.
Seattle has many tours. You can see the city using a bike, a trolley and strangely enough by a sea-plane. I personally think the sea-plane to be the most unique and romantic way to see the city as it offers personal charters and a romantic dining experience as well. While the sea plane might be a memory for the books, a bike tour is highly recommended for those looking to see Seattle, have a romantic experience and not break the bank.
A few other tours in the area that are sure to spark your interest are the Beneath the Streets tour and a tour of the Boeing factory. The beneath the streets tour will show you and your sweetheart a whole new view of the city by showing you the “historic underground passageways of Seattle’s original neighborhood, Pioneer Square”. The tour is definitely sure to make great memories for the history loving couple. The Boeing factory tour will also appeal to history lovers as well as though interested in flight. Get out and enjoy all that Seattle has to offer.
The Arts in Seattle
Seattle has a lively art scene. It has many museums to see. A few of those include The Seattle Art Museum, the Frye Museum, Seattle Aquarium, Pacific Science Center, The Museum of Flight and Chihuly Garden and Glass. Seatle has something for every couple, from the science loving couple to the couple looking to take in fine art. Bring your love out and experience it all.
Beyond museums, Seattle has a lively comedy scene and many theaters to visit. I suggest visiting Jet City Improv, 5th Avenue Theater, and The Triple Door for a romantic evening with plenty of entertainment.
Once you have had a belly full of laughs and great food, get out and experience some of the unique places in Seatle like the Space Needle and the Seattle Great Wheel. While you are out and venturing about, be sure to take a stroll through some of the parks in the city like Discovery Park or Kerry Park or visit the botanical gardens for the chance to walk hand in hand with your sweetheart while enjoying the romantic atmosphere.
If you are a sports-loving couple, you can’t visit Seattle without catching a Seattle Seahawks (NFL) or a Mariner’s (MLB) game. If baseball and football aren’t your speed and you and your sweetheart prefer soccor or basketball, Seatle still has you covered as it is home to the Sounders (MSL) and the Seattle Storm (WNBA). The local populace are very supportive of their teams and provide a great group of people to help you and your love cheer on your team of choice. Go out and enjoy a little local competition.
In Seatle there are few things we suggest as unique dates. Some of those things are going to an escape room together so you can have fun with some teambuilding with your sweetheart while you devise a plan to get out. Once you get out, try some shopping at a few of the local antique stores like Ballyhoo Curiosity Shop and Mr Johnson’s Antiques and experience a dig though history together. Once you are are out and have had your fill of treasure hunting, go and see the treasures of Dale Chihuly’s artwork at Chihuly Garden and glass. Stroll hand in hand and apprecieate the beauty of masterfully crafted glasswork.
