Girlfriends’ Autumn Getaway

Nothing says fall fun like a girls trip to Bellevue. From shopping to dining to outside adventures, this weekend escape offers plenty of options.

For your weekend stay, check into the brand-new Hilton Garden Inn. It’s conveniently located downtown just minutes from great shopping, dining and more. This clean, bright, modern hotel includes a stylish lobby, conference rooms, and a pool and balcony overlooking the city.

Satisfy your appetite at The Lakehouse at Lincoln Square South. Dining at this farmhouse-chic restaurant will make you feel like you are enjoying a delicious meal at your friend’s lake house. Its fresh seasonal menu, which changes every six weeks, will keep you coming back.

Stroll around and enjoy shopping, mingling and more at Bellevue Square. Take in the sunset views at Meydenbauer Bay Park. Kayaking rentals are available.

Chef Joel Handshuh says he loves to cook “by inspiration.” And that inspiration comes from the freshest foods available. The Lakehouse menu offers a lovely pairing of thoughtful cuisine and cocktails that will tantalize your taste buds. The restaurant also serves breakfast and lunch weekdays and brunch on the weekends.

Stop in for a bite and a distinctly different sip at Third Culture Coffee. This artistic and globally themed shop features hot and cold brew from around the world. Ask about the avocado and kaya toast. A well-known snack in Singapore and Malaysia, kaya is akin to a coconut jam.

At Central Bar + Restaurant, Sundays are fun days with DJ music and games. Any day of the week, you can take in the upbeat, hip and lively atmosphere, with menus to match for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We loved the cauliflower appetizer and the Buddha bowl for a fresh option.
