The Seattle Book of Dates

The Seattle Book of Dates

Adventures, Escapes, and Secret Spots
by Dawn, Eden

Discover Seattle in a whole new way! Secret spots, beloved locales, and unexpected destinations offer endless options for date night or a weekend getaway.

From the authors of the bestselling Portland Book of Dates comes this cheeky insider’s guide to the coolest spots in Seattle and Washington state. A visual delight, the illustrated book marries style and substance and the result is a curated and creative collection of more than 125 often-inexpensive outings in and around Seattle to inspire romance and adventure.

Outings run the gamut: 

  • Tropical Winter Date features the Volunteer Park Conservatory and a secret drink at Inside Passage
  • Get High on History includes a trip to the Klondike Gold Rush Historic Park and Smith Tower Observatory (and bar!)
  • Eat, Drink, and Be Gay offers up Capitol Hill bars that celebrate and cater to the queer community
  • Farther afield adventures include trips to Vancouver and Victoria, the San Juans and other islands, Bellingham and Skagit Vallet, Mount Rainier, Eastern Washington, and more!

Authors (and married couple) Eden Dawn and Ashod Simonian seek out the obscure and fascinating, and the date descriptions are motivating enough to prompt even the most dedicated Netflix-and-chillers to head out the door. The book is an essential resource and armchair read for Seattle’s couples of all ages (and singles with friends) interested in learning about off-the-beaten-path things to do, see, and taste.
