A Sun-Soaked Adventure
Lynnwood is the ideal gateway for exploring the Pacific Northwest. Just north of Seattle, a short ferry ride will find you exploring the jaw-dropping natural beauty of the Puget Sound.
This journey will be action packed. If you're into stepping on a boat to catch a glimpse of larger-than-life sea mammals, testing your hand at island-hopping, rolling the dice (Dungeons & Dragons style) and capping it all off with the international flavors of Brazil...then this is the trip for you.
Journey on friend!
A WHALE OF A TIME
Puget Sound sets the stage for a breathtaking experience. Get on board with Puget Sound Express, Seattle’s only half-day whale-watching tour, departing from Edmonds. They’re the fastest and quietest whale-watching boats in the Northwest, connecting you with whales throughout the Salish Sea. Prepare to be awed as you see orcas, humpbacks, gray whales, minke whales, and more!
THE ISLANDS AWAIT
Want to see more of the Puget Sound? Go island hopping – it’s easy! Drive or Walk onto a Washington State Ferry to the Olympic Peninsula, Whidbey or the San Juan Islands from Edmonds and Mulkiteo. Take the San Juan Clipper at Pier 69 in downtown Seattle to sail to Friday Harbor. You’re sure to find the islands charming, each with its own distinct personality but with plenty to offer and enjoy.
When it’s time to say goodbye to whales and islands, it’s time for a good night’s sleep. La Quinta® by Wyndham in Lynnwood is just a short drive from Seattle, and welcomes you with all the conveniences of home, plus lots more—including A free Bright Side Breakfast® of waffles and cereal, free Wi-Fi, a gym, and business center. Didn’t get enough of the water? Relax in the indoor pool and hot tub!
LET THE GAMES BEGIN
If you're tuckered from all of the outdoor adventure, it's time to have a leisurely recovery morning in Lynnwood, then pull up a chair for some traditional and even hard-to-find games. Around the Table Game Pub in Lynnwood is an all-ages and community-oriented board game shop and pub with the best selection of games in the North End. It’s a winning combination that also offers a choice of 16 flavors of local favorite Full Tilt ice cream—and drink delicious craft beers (they even have mead) and strong ciders (or hard kombucha). There’s even weekly events like Magic the Gathering tournaments, so you can make some new friends in the process!
DINNER IN BRAZIL
Brainpower can sure work up an appetite. Thankfully, Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse offers non-stop fire-roasted meat, perfectly prepared by gaucho chefs. Located at The Village at Alderwood in Lynnwood, here you’ll witness the open-air churrasco grill and the culinary art of churrasco as the chefs prepare and grill different cuts of meat over an open flame. Be sure to come hungry—there’s continuous tableside service of signature cuts of meat.
