Going to Seattle This Spring? Put These on Your Agenda…
If you are ready to get out of the house and enjoy the spring weather, there’s no better place to do it than Seattle. Although temperatures can run around 58 degrees in the heat of the day, take a jacket and you’ll be sure to enjoy everything that the city has to offer.
Take a walk on the wild side, head over to Woodland Park Zoo. With over 92 acres and more animals than you can see in a day, the zoo provides one of the best ways to enjoy the weather and just being outside. The zoo also has a variety of seasonal programs from rose pruning demonstrations and summer concerts.
Looking for some culture? Maybe with a four legged friend? Check out the Olympic Sculpture Park. Spend some time outside in the nice weather and check out this park. This includes over nine acres of art installations. Free and open to the public every day of the year.
If you are looking for something to do with your kids – head over to the Seattle Children’s Museum. They run various programs based on the seasons. This spring events include the Leprechaun Practice Lap, Discover Days (during Spring Break), and the museum’s Birthday Celebration. Activities are designed for kids ages 10 months to 10 years old. All children, parents and grandparents are welcome to enjoy the facilities with the kids. With current admission under $11 per person, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
And if you are ready to see a true bit of modern culture, head over to the Market Theater Gum Wall, located in Post Alley at Pike Place Market. Do a bit a bit of shopping, strolling and chewing to add your own piece of gum to the wall. No admission required as this is on a public street. An interesting location to take photos in.
