Lighting up Seattle's Boardwalk

 

 

On a recent family trip to Seattle, WA, we breathed in ocean air as we walked along the fantastic waterfront, had lunch at Ivar’s, and enjoyed the energetic tourist area and the businesses that lined the street along the piers.

As we took an even closer look at the stores, we saw something that felt a little more personal – Christmas light clips, C9 cords and LED light bulbs outlining the windows and accenting the building’s rooflines.

At Kidd Valley Burgers and Shakes notice the lights around windows and along trim as you stop to order one of my favorite meals!

Note: Saltwater in the air is super-hard on clips and electrical cords.  Nothing lasts forever in the heat, salt, and sun. If you are on the water, be sure to have a stash of extra clips waiting to go into action when there’s a man down.

At Simply Seattle, take a quick look at the lights as you pop in for a snow globe!
