Just a short drive from Seattle, Bellevue is a great staycation destination for those looking for a healthy and relaxing outing, complete with great shopping and food experiences.
Keridwyn's been told she has her "thumb on the pulse of the city." She loves helping others find the best fill-in-the-blank in Seattle. To her, the only thing better than living in Seattle is to take a day or two to behave like a tourist. She has a big ol' crush on this region.
You can often find her at unique events, happy hours, wine tasting, relaxing at the spa or out dancing. When she's not out on the town, she loves curling up with a good book, board gaming, listening to podcasts like Good Job Brain and blogging at Seattle Pockets.
She's a sucker for a luxurious hotel bed and white robe. Her mantra used to be "I'd rather be busy than bored," but she's come to realize life is best supported by unwinding and embracing the present moment.
The start of her love of staycations can be traced back to childhood, when she created forts in order to take imaginary vacations without ever leaving the house.
Keridwyn owns Social Magnet, a boutique social media marketing firm.
