where to take soon to be 16 year old for a few night getaway to celebrate?

Jump to last reply

Greetings,
I am toying with the idea of taking my soon to be 16 year old stepdaughter to Seattle to celebrate her 16th birthday. The trip would be only 3 nights. I would be traveling on a Thursday and returning on a Sunday.

She is a wonderful young woman and I would love to take her some place more exotic but the budget and time factor does not work out right now. Her birthday is Sept 6 but I would be taking her at the end of August in between my class schedule.

I have been to Seattle a few times but not in a few years.

My stepdaughter is a great traveler, easy to get along with. She has not been to Seattle since she was a toddler.

I live in Southern California so am not looking for a place that is too far to fly to. We have been to NYC many times due to family living there so am trying to think of some place new. I have also toyed with San Francisco.

She likes to shop, eat sushi, see theater, enjoys museums to a certain extent but at times i think tolerates them for my sake ;-). She is easy to please. It would just be she and I traveling.

I have from a Thursday - coming home on a Sunday.

Open to suggestions about Seattle and SF as well as any place else.

Thanks so much!
Dawn
