The Perfect Kid-friendly Getaway Close to Bellevue, WA

Weekend getaways are a must in our family. They are the perfect cure to a long and monotonous week of work, routine, and just the day-to-day grind. Weekend getaways don’t have to be far or a flight away, sometimes all you need is to hop in your car and drive to the edge of town, rent a cabin and sit by a cozy fire while the snow sprinkles outside.

Restaurants You Must Try in Kirkland, WA

Kirkland is a town that is close to both Seattle and Bellevue, but still has a small-town feel, for now. In downtown, there are no big chain restaurants; most are small, family owned establishments, so you know the food will be delicious! Being close to the Puget Sound and having so much ethnic influence, it’s no surprise that the food scene in Kirkland (and surrounding areas) is amazing. Anytime our friends come to visit, we always take them to one of these three restaurants. These are must-try, restaraunts that are worth going out of your way for.
