Things to do in Seattle


Plenty of people have done books on the Pacific Northwest. I’m definitely not trying to redo that. As a Seattle resident I have started a list of things I have always wanted to see and do, but never got the chance to because of a full-time work schedule. I am lucky to have a few mom friends who are up to joining me on my quest to see all the city and surrounding area has to offer. Don’t be surprised if you see them pop in now and then. Who knows what fun we will come up with in the coming weeks, months and year.

My List: this list is ongoing and ever changing. Check back to see when a link is added to a sight. It means I have a story to share.
