Need Things To Do In Seattle?
Visiting Seattle for the first time? Check out Pike’s Place Market, the Seattle Center, and hop on a ferry to Bremerton for an afternoon lunch and amazing views of the Seattle skyline and Mount Rainier.
My favorite attractions in Seattle are the Museum of Flight and Future of Flight. The first is an aviation museum located almost next door to the SeaTac airport. Future of Flight is located at Paine Field in Everett, WA (just north of Seattle.) There, you can see where (and how) airplanes are built on guided small-group tours of the Boeing factory.
Need Things To Do In Boston?
My favorite place in Boston is the south side of Beacon Hill — a great place to wander. Experience the city’s Freedom Trail and Paul Revere’s House which is open to tour. You can also visit (and climb) the tower of Old North Church.
For either city, you might want to consider getting a CityPass. It is a straightforward way to explore the most popular attractions, including expedited entry.
Best Ways to Maximize Your Purchase
Besides the miles you would earn with the airline for actually flying, you can also earn points for spending on credit cards. These are some of the cards that offer bonuses for purchasing airfare.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card – 2x Ultimate Rewards points on travel (directly with airline or OTA)
The Platinum Card® from American Express – 5x Membership Rewards points on flights booked directly with the airline
The Chase Sapphire Reserve – 3x Ultimate Rewards points on travel (directly with airline or OTA)
JetBlue Cards: JetBlue offers two cards, the JetBlue card and the JetBlue Plus card, both from Barclays. Both earn bonuses on JetBlue flights, dining and grocery store purchases, but only the $99-per-year plus card includes baggage and elite status, for those who spend enough.
Boston to Seattle is getting more competitive, especially with Delta developing their hub in both of these cities. JetBlue certainly wants to make a noticeable presence. Their Mint service is fantastic for a domestic product.
There’s scattered availability from right now through the spring of next year, so you want to check out those fares as shown above. If you don’t find this low fare for your first set of dates, keep trying. They are loaded through the schedule into 2020.
