‘Sell Your Way To The USA’ Winners Experience Seattle

The third group of “Sell Your Way to the USA” incentive winners have returned following a week spent exploring the dynamic city of Seattle.

After experiencing Air Canada’s service, the group was treated to a behind-the-scenes Pike Place Market Food Tour with Savor Seattle. They joined a Starbucks master roaster at the only Starbucks Reserve Roastery in the world and explored Seattle’s underground on a Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour.

They took in the bold, bright colors of Chihuly Garden and Glass, visited the Museum of Pop Culture and enjoyed awe-inspiring views from the Space Needle. They took a ferry and explored the quaint downtown of Bainbridge Island, enjoyed a Harbor Tour with Argosy Cruises, visited the Seattle Aquarium and rode the Seattle Great Wheel.

Winners were spoilt with the local and inspired cuisine offerings, including Ivar’s Acres of Clams and Ray’s Boathouse for the freshest Northwest seafood. Happy hour was enjoyed at mbar followed-by casual vibes at Serious Pie, a pizzeria with a bread baker’s soul.

The highlight of the trip was taking in the excitement of an NHL game – Seattle Kraken vs Anaheim Ducks at the Climate Pledge Arena.

The group stayed at the centrally located, The Westin Seattle.

Visit Seattle’s Tourism Manager, Caitlyn Shearer said, “Seattle is a wonderful city to explore and this trip was no exception! In addition to highlighting Seattle’s access to Alaska cruising, the group discovered all the ways to experience the city and, in turn, develop itinerary options, from an adults only game-day weekend to family time with kids to the ever-iconic girls’ trip. Seattle is a popular destination for Canadian visitors. Air Canada offers daily service between Vancouver and Seattle which makes it an easy option for those wanting a quick getaway or an extended holiday”.

One final trip to Utah is on the horizon for three more lucky “Sell Your Way to the USA” winners over the next few months.

The Seattle winners are:

Rachel Neild – Think Travel Inc., Ottawa, Ontario

Colette Larsen, Clark-Way Travel, Toronto, Ontario

Kathy Kean, Kean 2 Travel, Woodstock, Ontario
