Seattle kisses rating: 6.5/10 😘😘😘😘😘😘
The greater Seattle area is a gem when it comes to natural beauty, from the mountains, to the bays and everything in between, the possibilities for proposal spots are endless. Narrowing it down to our top 10 was quite the challenge! Below we have our top 10 locations but we are not arranging them in any particular order as we think any one of them could be the #1 spot, we will leave that for you to decide! But know this, if you plan on proposing in Seattle, do it like a local and be prepared for rain, snow and the occasional bit of sunshine!
#1: Gold Creek Pond
Perched at the top of Snoqualmie Pass, just across the freeway from the ski resort this hidden little gem is full of surprises. For one, when we came to visit it at the end of April, there was still a couple feet of snow on the ground, which of course made it even more magical. Its serene, secluded, and the perfect spot for a proposal we think!
This spot is perfect for the nature lover who doesn’t like long hikes but instead would prefer a romantic picnic.
#2: Deception Pass
About an hour and a half drive north of Seattle, this is the perfect proposal spot for the adventurer! With lots of hiking trails, the Puget Sound and little mountains to climb, it’s easy to make a fun day of exploring up here. Be sure to stop by the Shrimp Shack while your are up here for some fish and chips or just a couple pounds of shrimp for peeling on the shore. There are incredible views from the top of the bridge but the real magic is down below at Deception Pass State Park where you can see the bridge from the shores of the Puget Sound!
#3: Mt. Erie
This was one of our absolute favorite spots! For one, you don’t have to hike up this mountain but you can take a windey, hairpinned road all the way to the tippy top, and from there the views are endless. This is the perfect spot for the dreamer to talk about life and their ambitions, a place to pour out their soul, and once you have heard them out, it would be the perfect spot to propose!
Strap on some hiking boots and pick any trail from the parking lot, we promise they all lead to beautiful destinations! This is a spot is picture perfect and stunning in every way. Your feet will carry you down the trails and you won’t even notice how far you have come because every step to the end of the trail is breathtaking. Pack some snacks and some drinks for the end of your little adventure, and don’t forget the ring!
With views of both Seattle and Bellevue from up here, a little putt putt would be a great lighthearted activity before you reach into one of the cups and pull out your engagement ring! There is also a great restaurant for you to celebrate your ultimate win just above the golf course at the club house (or castle).
#6: Snoqualmie Falls
Easily one of the most iconic and beautiful waterfalls in all of Washington, we had to add it to the list! You can watch the falls crashing from above at the Salish Lodge over a nice dinner, or take a hike down to the bottom where you can catch some of the spray from the waterfall, you won’t go wrong choosing this spot to pop the question!
Book in advance and ask for a table upstairs as this is a perfect, romantic and fancy spot to pop the big question! You will be entertained by the captain narrating the cruise, pointing out the house of Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and lots of other fun stuff, while you have a fine 3 course dinner with beautiful views. Cruise by Downtown Bellevue, Mount Rainier and finishing up with a sunset over downtown Seattle, which would be the perfect spot to propose we think!
This is easily one of the most romantic spots on the list for a proposal. If you come here on a warm summer evening to catch the sunset, it simply can’t be beat! We recommend bringing a picnic basket and when it hits that golden hour with the sun resting on the beautiful Olympic Mountains you will have the perfect setting, for a perfect proposal.
#9: Kerry Park
With the most spectacular view of Seattle, Kerry Park will be the perfect place to knock her socks off with that massive rock and then whisk her off to a nice dinner at one of the fine establishments near by.
Yes, you heard me correctly, this is Seattle’s only gondolier and he is ready to take you on an ultra romantic and unique ride. Be sure to pick a calm and warm evening and then surprise your significant other with this beautiful little cruise. This will impress even those who have done it and seen it all, because they probably haven’t done this yet!
Where to Stay:
If you are looking for romantic getaway, though downtown Seattle is fun, staying at the Salish Lodge at Snoqualmie Falls is where all the romance is! Literally perched on the edge of the falls, there are 2 restaurants, a nice spa and beautiful newly renovated rooms! We cant wait to come back for another relaxing stay soon!
From sparkly stones to beautiful bands they have all your ring needs covered, for the perfect proposal!
