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

October 17, 2018

If your ideal fall day is curling up on the couch with a book and a blanket, sorry. With this unbelievable weather, we gotta get outside! I mean, when have there ever been so many sunny weekends for the family trip to the pumpkin patch? Book-and-blanket weather will come soon enough. In the meantime, here are our best picks for weekend family fun. Enjoy!

More ideas to get outside: New parks! Fall color hikes for families! Places to spot spawning salmon! Got your fill of sun? Try one of these terrific family-friendly exhibits for fall, or catch a budget screening of a cult-classic movie. And don't forget, our family fun calendar has dozens of great activities for every day of the week.
