Are you exhausted with winter already? One of the best ways to help winter seem to pass faster is by giving yourself something to look forward to. With Washington only a short drive away, it makes for the perfect weekend adventure that won't break the bank. There are plenty of unreal things to do in Seattle the next time you need to get out of Vancouver.

The last thing you might expect to find downtown Seattle is a rainforest, but that is exactly what there is. The gigantic glass domes, are free to visit on select weekends where you can feel like you've escaped to a tropical country.

But that isn't the only stunning spot to discover. There is so much more to the city than just Pike Place Market.

You'll be able to see a garden made out of rainbow coloured glass, a massive troll hiding under a bridge and even a library that looks like it belongs in Hogwarts.

Meanwhile, if you've already discovered all your local speakeasies, then you'll definitely want to add the Knee High Stocking Co to your bucket list. If you can find your way inside, you'll feel like you've travelled back in time as you sip delicious cocktails.
