Here are 8 easy ways to treat yourself in Seattle this winter

Everyone needs a little break during the change of seasons. So why not treat yourself a bit this winter? Between eats, relaxing, pampering and simply getting outside we have a few ideas for you. Here are 5 easy ways to treat yourself in Seattle this winter.

Relax with a spa day

The most classic way to treat yourself? Head to the spa of course. Seattle and the surrounding area has all sorts of spas whether you’re looking for specific services or treatment packages, they have you covered. We also went ahead and made a list of a bunch of them so you don’t have to do the hard work of searching.

Watch the sunset

Sometimes we don’t have the time or ability to spend a whole day pampering ourselves. That being said, there are still small and easy things you can do to treat yourself. One of the best is watching the sunset, you probably don’t have to leave home but if you want to make it a little more scenic we have a whole list of local spots that you can visit.

Grab a new book

There’s no better form of healthy escapism than a good book. After all, a good writer can transport you to a whole other world and that’s a treat and a half in our books. That being said, you happen to be in a great city for bookstores and we’ve made a list of our favorites.

Enjoy your favorite caffeinated beverage

It’s Seattle, who here doesn’t drink coffee? We know, we know not everyone loves coffee but if you do, we’re sure you have your drink of choice. Why not check out a new coffee shop and see how they make your order? After all, we went ahead and made a list of all of our favorite spots.

You might as well also check out your Airbnbs surrounding parks.

Rent a hot tub boat

Seattle’s Lake Union has two different hot tub boat rental companies. You can’t go wrong with either and they both have their own unique offerings. Both boat companies give you the chance to pilot your own hot tub boat on the water by the hour with your friends. Costs and offerings differ company to company so be sure to check them both out.

Take a ski day

As adults we don’t get those beloved snow days anymore but you can always take a ski day. Washington has tons of great ski hills and mountains waiting for you to enjoy them. If you’re hitting the slopes after work you can even enjoy the largest night skiing area in the US right here in Washington!

Happy winter, Seattle!
