Weekender: Top Family Events for Seattle and the Eastside

We’ve rounded up outings to please every family in the Puget Sound this weekend!

August 16, 2018

The overflowing bounty of summer fun continues! Lego, free kayaking, big trucks, the rhythms of Brazil... find them all in our top picks for weekend family fun. See you out there.

The haze is clearing up! Go out blueberry picking or find a thrill at these adventurous playgrounds. Take a dip at a local beach or swimming lake, head out for a hike with the tots or try kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding with the fam. You can do this easy city-to-country day trip with zero planning, or plan ahead a little to try out traveling with a super-fun little trailer. And don't forget, our family fun calendar has dozens of great activities for every day of the week.
