Seattle Honeymoon

A Seattle honeymoon provides newlyweds with a city destination that’s filled with adventure and must-see landmarks.

Along with its gorgeous landscape, Seattle also is home to a large tech industry and the iconic Space Needle. So, if you’re looking for a trip that consists of outdoor activities, beautiful scenery and modern entertainment, a Seattle honeymoon is the perfect choice.

When to Go

The best time to take your Seattle honeymoon depends entirely on what type of getaway you’re envisioning. The summer months are very warm and generally dry. There are plenty of festivals, outdoor activities, hiking trails and lush foliage to enjoy. The winters are generally mild making it a great place to enjoy winter sports like skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing. Whale watching is also a favorite attraction and will give you plenty of wow-worthy photos. Humpbacks and gray whales are seen from October through to April while Orcas can be seen from May to September—so we definitely suggest packing a camera for your trip. Airfare prices are consistent throughout the year but weekday travel is cheaper than weekend rates. Some travel places will even offer deal package sales throughout the year, which Seattle honeymooners can use to stay on budget.

Honeymoon where to? No. California or Seattle

So we planned out honeymoon to California (San Francisco, Napa and Carmel-Big Sur) but now we are debating between that or Seattle/Portland. What would you do, why and recommendations please!
