Matt and Tracy Morris, ODs of Edmond Family Eye Care, recently visited Seattle, Washington and shares the the inside scoop for a weekend
trip to the beautiful, sometimes rainy, Seattle! Read on for insider recommendations on the best dinner spots, drinks, activities, sights to see, photo ops and more!


Matt and Tracy flew out to Seattle on a Thursday evening and began the trip with dinner at Ivar’s (right on the water by the ferry dock) – which gets a  10/10 recommendation as “amazing.” During the rest of her trip, they wandered all along the famous Pike Place Market hitting all of the best brunch and happy hour spots.
Tracy’s most memorable moment from the trip were visiting the Original Starbucks, the gum wall, riding up the space needle and The Museum of Pop Culture.
They also visited Chinatown before taking a Ferry over to Bainbridge Island, stopping at Bainbridge Brewing for a local beer and some board games. “Then we had an amazing waterfront dinner at Doc’s Marina Grill,” Tracy said.
They headed home on a Sunday, which made for a great, adventurous (yet relaxing) weekend trip.
