Seattle Aquarium

Located on Pier 59 along Seattle’s waterfront, the Seattle Aquarium (www.seattle aquarium.org. 1483 Alaskan Way, 206.386.4300) is the ninth largest aquarium in the United States. There’s a lot to see when visiting, but if you’re short on time, following are a few of the highlights. After purchasing tickets, one of the first things to see is the Window on Washington Waters. Boasting 120,000 gallons of water, it’s impossible to miss. Inside, find more than 800 fish and invertebrates also found in Pacific Northwest waters, including salmon, rockfish and wolf eels. Spend some time watching this glimpse into the area’s oceans at the 20-by-40-foot window. Three times a day, divers appear and will answer questions from the audience. Deeper into the aquarium, find the Life on the Edge exhibit. Take a moment to

explore the touch pools, which are filled with sea cucumbers, sea stars, sea urchins and more. Popular with kids, the touch pools are just as fun for adults. Just beyond the touch pools sits the Moon Jellies, a half-moon, three-dimensional installation with jellyfish. It’s a fun spot for interesting photographs. Also in this area, the giant Pacific octopus, which averages an incredible 90 pounds.

Get going! Explore the city at wheretraveler.com.

From there, exhibits move into birds and marine mammals. Stop at the sea otters and river otters. These playful animals can be viewed above or below the water and there are seating areas if you’d like to take a break while they swim and dive. As a final stop in the aquarium, visit the Underwater Dome. Stand underneath a 400,000-gallon tank filled with sea life from Puget Sound. There are salmon, lingcod, sharks, rockfish, sturgeon and more.

TOUR THE TOWN

Seattle’s Must List With so many events, activities, attractions and sights in Seattle, it can be hard to figure out what to put on a to-do list when time is limited. While this time of year, the weather can dictate activities (though even in winter, it’s generally mild enough to be outside) the options are still plentiful. From attractions and holiday shopping to dining and nightlife, here’s a November must list for the Emerald City.

T

here are a few places in the city that every visitor should experience. Seattle is a city of innovation, art, wackiness and history, and there are attractions in the city that help illustrate a bit of the area’s personality. If you’ve never been to the Space Needle (www.spaceneedle.com. Seattle Center, 400 Broad St., 206.905.2175), consider a stop there early in your visit. If it’s been a few years, consider going again. Not only is the view from the Observation Deck rapidly changing, as evidenced by the number of construction cranes that dot the skyline, but the Space Needle has added some features in the last few years, including the SkyPad, a wall of interactive video screens that outline the history of the building along with plenty of photography. While at Seattle Center, stop at Chihuly Garden and Glass (www.chihulygardenandglass.com. Seattle Center, 305 Harrison St., 206.753.4940). Located near the base of the Space Needle, this beautiful spot is home to a long-term exhibition from Dale Chihuly, local glass artist extraordinaire. Even on an overcast day, the glass house with its 1,400 Chihuly Persians installation is stunning. A few miles away, where the city of Seattle got its start, you’ll find the Underground Tour (www.undergroundtour.com. 614 First Ave., 206.682.4646). A humorous look at Seattle’s history, the tour takes you beneath Seattle’s sidewalks to the original streets of the Emerald City. After the Great Fire of 1889, Seattle rebuilt atop itself, creating the underground. The 75-minute tours happen every hour on the hour, 10 am-6 pm. For anyone 21 or older, the Underworld Tour takes you through the old red-light district in an adults-only look at Seattle’s history. These tours happen at 7 and 8 pm Thur.-Sat. and admission includes a cocktail. Also in the neighborhood, visit the Smith Tower (www.smithtower.com. 506 Second Ave., 206.624.0414), Seattle’s first skyscraper and once the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. The 1914 building recently received a renovation, including the addition of a bar to the observation deck. A visit to the building includes historical exhibits and Temperance, a speakeasy-inspired bar and café. Grab a cocktail while taking in views of the city. On the ground floor, visit the new Smith Tower Provisions, a general store with a soda fountain, deli counter and a few gifts and souvenirs. There is far more to the city, however. After a day full of attractions, find some fabulous food, head out for a beer or start in on the holiday gift list at a few great boutiques. Even more ideas of the hot spots to include on your to-do list at right.

The City’s Best Bets SHOPPING E. SMITH MERCANTILE Find clothing, jewelry and accessories for men and women that are made to last. This spot also has a back bar—stop in for a drink after a shop-‘tilyou-drop afternoon. 208 First Ave. S, 206.641.7250 www.esmithmercantile.com

HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS

Start Your Holidays It’s in the air—the holidays. Starting with Thanksgiving weekend, Seattle ramps up the twinkle lights, holiday carols and (fake) snow. Following, find a wide variety of events and festivals to kick off the merriest season of the year.

TEDDY BEAR SUITE At the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, take holiday photos at the annual Teddy Bear Suite opening Nov. 25 and running through Dec. 26. This year the hotel is celebrating the 20th anniversary of this event, which features a professionally decorated suite of teddy bears in a winter wonderland. As a special treat, this year overnight stays are available, with 20 percent of the price going toward Seattle Children’s Hospital. The overnight stay includes a Teddy Bear Breakfast and a commemorative teddy bear. During the day, admission to the suite is free, with donations

accepted (again, going to Seattle Children’s Hospital). www.fair mont.com/seattle. 411 University St., 206.621.1700 CHRISTMAS SHIP FESTIVAL Every year, Argosy Cruises brings this festival to life. The Argosy Christmas Ship sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities, where choirs on the ship sing carols—a sound system broadcasts the performance. Head to the stopping site for bonfires and music or buy a ticket for the ship and sail with the choir! Begins Nov. 25 and continues through Dec. 23. www.argosycruises.com

Fairmont Olympic Hotel’s Teddy Bear Suite

A BEGINNER’S GUIDE Not sure where to begin with recreational cannabis? Below, information to get you started. • There are two basic types of cannabis that originated in different parts of the world. Indica is thought to have originated near Afghanistan. The plant is short and bushy. Sativa, on the other hand, is believed to come from more temperate areas close to the equator. The Sativa plant is tall and thin. The two categories are also thought to give users a different type of high. Indica’s effects are more full body and relaxing. Many people prefer to use Indica at night, when they want to relax on the couch. Sativa gives a more uplifting high that leaves people feeling energized. It tends to be more popular for use during the day. There are also hybrid strains that have characteristics from each—if you don’t know what to get, ask at the recreational cannabis store. Employees are well versed in what they carry and can help you find the right product. • Smoking cannabis is probably the most widely used method for consumption. Smoking cannabis releases tetrahydrocannabinol— THC—from the cannabis, which gets absored into the bloodstream through the lungs. THC is the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis. Options for smoking include joints (a slang term for cigarettes made with cannabis, sometimes mixed with tobacco or other non-addictive herbs), blunts (cannabis rolled in a cigar wrapper), pipes (also called pieces or bowls, where the cannabis is placed in the bowl, a heat source is applied and the user draws air through the stem) and bongs (similar to pipes but with a water chamber the smoke passes through before inhalation). If it’s the first time smoking, it is recommended to use only a pinch and wait 10-15 minutes to see what effect the marijuana has. • Edibles are another way to consume marijuana. Edibles can be a good option for tourists, since places to smoke are limited without a private space, such as a private home. Edibles can be tricky, however, as it takes the body a lot longer to metabolize the THC. Enjoy the edible treats (everything from chocolates to cookies) slowly—they are often made with concentrated cannabis oil, making them quite strong. Even if you’ve had homemade edibles in the past, these regulated treats can be very different. It is suggested to start with a single serving or less, and wait two to three hours to see what the effects are. It’s also important to keep edibles away from children and animals, as they look—and taste—like regular treats.

• Other options available include concentrates and vaporizer pens. Concentrates are just that—concentrated cannabis in the form of oils, hashes, waxes and more. The effects are strong and quick, so start with a small amount. Vaporizer pens are similar to electronic cigarettes and often use cannabis oil, which is concentrated. So again, start with a small amount. • Learn more about the entire recreational cannabis industry by taking a tour. There are a number of tours in the area, including Kush Tourism, Seattle Green Adventures and The Original Cannabus. Kush has two tours: The Kush Tour, a three-and-a-half hour tour of glass blowing, a grow operation, oil production, edibles and retail stores; and the Dawg Star Tour, an hour long tour to a commercial production facility. Either tour can be booked at www. kushtourism.com. Seattle Green Adventures has three tours. The four-hour Standard Tour includes two or three cannabis shops and a visit to either a grow operation or a glass blowing studio. There is also a Weekday Airport Welcome Tour, where they pick you up at the airport, take you to a cannabis shop and then drop you off at your hotel. Seattle Green Adventures also does customizable tours. Find more information at www.cannabistourseattle.com. The Original Cannabus has a two-and-a-half hour tour to the first licensed recreational cannabis facility in the city as well as a high-end cannabis store. Visit www.theoriginalcannabus.com to book a tour.

My Seattle

Lee Abbamonte [Travel Exper t]

At 32, Lee Abbamonte became the first person to visit every country in the world when he landed in Libya. He's in Seattle this month for the annual Wine, Women and Shoes event. Where spoke with Lee about his travels and what he loves about Seattle. Check out the record of his travels at leeabbamonte.com. You’ve been to every country, but have you visited every state? Yeah. My new thing is all the national parks. You’re in town for Wine, Women and Shoes, which is raising money for Olive Crest—how did you get involved with the event? My friend Jen Jedda [owner of JJ Caprices and partner with the event], who follows me on social media, she came to a meet-up I had in Mukilteo. We got along and we stayed in touch and she invited me along to do this charity thing.

place. You can’t really deny that, especially in the summer. If you get out on Puget Sound and do a boat ride, that view looking back toward the city and on the clear days when you can see Mount Rainier in the back— that’s pretty special.

Seattle made your 30 Most Beautiful Cities in the World list—what is it about Seattle that put it on the list? Seattle is a beautiful

The Pacific Northwest is probably the most underrated part of America. Seattle being the biggest city there really does a pretty good job. You’ve been to Seattle multiple times. Why is it worth coming back? It’s a beautiful city, there

What would you recommend people who haven’t been here before be sure to do? I would recommend going [to Seattle] for sure. Taking a boat tour in Puget Sound without question. Checking out the [Pike Place] Market taking your photo in front of the first Starbucks, the usual tourist stuff. Going to a sports event or a University of Washington game in the stadium they just remodeled. Olympic National Park and Mount Rainier are both worth for sure going to—maybe doing two days in the city

and two days out in the woods. Any memorable restaurants? There’s two places— Purple [Café & Wine Bar] I had a really good meal there and then there was a steakhouse—Metropolitan Grill. Those are the two places that I specifically remember. You’ve visited the national parks in Washington—which would you recommend people visit if they have time? If I had to pick one, I would probably say Mount Rainier just because it’ll stick with you the most. It’s so beautiful and Mount Rainier is such a landmark, so to speak. Is there any place left on your travel wish list? There’s always places left. That’s the thing about travel. It’s kind of like golf. It’s a hobby you can have your whole life. In terms of new places, trying to go back to new places or places in a country I didn’t go to the first time or the 10th time. I want to climb the tallest peak on each continent. I’ve done two of the seven. Are you a carry-on only person? Carry-on only. I’m a bit of a packing snob. Checking [bags] stresses me out. Best piece of travel advice you’ve picked up through the years. Take half the clothes and twice the money.

are good restaurants, good sports venues and it’s in close proximity to some fantastic national parks. Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier, North Cascades—that’s a beautiful park, too, that no one really knows about. It’s just a beautiful place really. It’s friendly and it’s expanded a lot since the first time I was there in 2002. I’ve been back four times since then, so this is the fifth or sixth time.
