Seattle Summer Dates
Browse the Ballard Farmers Market:
Head to Ballard any Sunday, as most of Ballard Ave closes down to accommodate Seattle’s best farmers market (after of course, Pike Place) with the most delicious food to snack on! Enjoy strolling through the market with you date and discovering some treasures!
Walk through the Ballard Locks:
No matter how many times you have seen it, it’s always entertaining watching the salmon swim upstream at the Locks! Walk around and check out the pretty views, water and gardens. Then grab a coffee or bite once you make it through in Ballard.
Hit brunch on the roof at Terra Plata:
One story above the busy Melrose Market, is hot spot Terra Plata. Put this place on your brunch list if you haven’t tried it before! The rooftop is surrounded by an edible garden and everything on the earth-to-plate-inspired menu is amazing, especially the steak and eggs and churros. Yum!
Eat some oysters:
Head over to Westward and enjoy oysters or a burger on the deck. The patio on the north shore of Lake Union might be the best place to grab a drink or snack outside in Seattle. Make sure to make a reservation, as this popular spot fills up quickly!
Catch a Mariner game:
Whether you have bleacher seats, you are behind the dugout or in the beer garden, Mariner games are always a great date spot! You can grab cheap seats, hit the nearby bar next to the Bullpen and have a great time cheering on those M’s.
Go Kayaking at night:
Rent kayaks or paddleboards by the hour at Aqua Verde, or check out a guided tour with your date (some only take place under the full moon). Then hit the Agua Verde patio for some fabulous margaritas and Mexican food!
Go to the beach:
People watch at one of Seattle’s beaches and enjoy some fun in the sun! Try Golden Gardens, Alki Beach, Madison Park or Carkeek Park to name a few. You will enjoy relaxing, picnicking, swimming, volleyball and the stunning city views with your date.
