Summertime Fun In & Around Seattle, WA

It feels like we spend so much of our year battling the rain and the overcast weather. Well, summer is finally here! It’s time to get out, fuel up the vehicle (or charge it, haha), and hit the road for some summertime fun.

There is nothing better than feeling the warmth of the sun’s rays as you drive down the road with family and friends at your side. Day trips & road trips are in season, so we decided to provide a couple of options for you to consider while you prepare your vehicle for the road.

Summertime In The Pacific Northwest

Chihuly Garden & Glass – The amazing glass sculptures will be sure to impress, illuminated under the summer sun’s rays! Situated right underneath the space needle, take a trip through the gardens, and then jump up to watch the sunset from the needle!

Take A Trip To The “Portland Japanese Garden” – Nothing says summertime fun like a road trip! Portland is roughly 2-3 hours outside of Seattle, making it a perfect day trip destination. Have you been to the “Portland Japanese Garden”? It is incredible! And in the summertime, with the right weather, a downright magical experience. See countless numbers of uniquely cultivated plants, and feed the koi fish in the lake! Bring a date, your kids, or friends, and have a wonderful summertime afternoon.

Gaze Upon The Fremont Troll – Did you guys hear? Apparently, there is a troll in Fremont! That’s right, a gigantic troll underneath a bridge that won’t eat you, haha! Great opportunity to hop in your car, bring the kids, and take some pictures you are sure to remember for years to come.
