Day 17: A Day Shopping Downtown
Downtown is the hustle and bustle of Seattle, you can find scores of shopping all over, but, the mecca of shopping in Seattle resides between about four blocks. It’s all pretty well located between 7th and 3rd and Olive and Pike. If you too are a shopaholic you definitely have to start here, they got you all the way from the high end to the budget friendly! At Pacific Place find your favorite stores like Michael Kors, Barney’s, J. Jill, Kate Spade, Ann Taylor, Victoria’s Secret, and Soma. There are also tons of other children’s, shoe, home, bridal, and entertainment stores inside. You can find good eats from places like Din Tai Fung, Gordon Biersch, and a personal favorite, Thai Ginger.
Head west a block for the mother load of Nordstrom, the store practically takes up the whole block all for itself. There is the most lovely floral shop located inside the store at the Pine street entrance, other than that the entire building is all Nordy’s! They’ve got the best of their shoes, handbags, clothing, cosmetics, P.B., however, for the Rack lovers you have go down a block to the Westlake Center. Here you will can find places like Lush, Lorna Jane, Zara, and get a bite to eat at P.F. Changs! Around the block you can shop at Macy’s, Urban Outfitters, Madewell, Eileen Fisher, Sephora, GAP, Old Navy, Forever 21, Anthropologie, Nike, Columbia, and of course our beloved Target. Honestly Downtown has it all and you can end the day with dinner on the Sound, what more could you ask for?
