4 Things To Do During The Holiday Season

Now that December is here it is time to enjoy and appreciate some of the fun things to do during this holiday season. I have personally hand selected some of my favorite Pacific Northwest holiday outings that I think you will enjoy.

Here they are:


1. Trinity Tree Farm – Issaquah


Trinity Tree Farm is a local Christmas tree farm where you can have the holiday experience of cutting down your very own douglas fir.  Not sure if you want to engage in all of that hard work?  Don’t worry, Trinity Tree Farm has a variety of freshly cut trees waiting for you!  Sip on delicious hot chocolate, cozy up by the warm fire, or say “cheese” while you get your picture taken with Santa.  There is no chance you will not love this holiday experience.
*Small Tip:  The weekends are very busy, so try to go during the week to beat the crowds.

2. Zoo Lights – Tacoma

The kids love this one so be sure to bring the entire family! The tickets are inexpensive, parking is free, and you will be supporting a fantastic cause. Bundle up and enjoy the 3-D animal light displays, be adventurous and ride the carousel, and light up your hearts with the zoo’s latest tiger cubs who will be on display “Berani” and “Dumai.”

*Small Tip: Buy a combo pass if you are bringing multiple family members.

3. Redmond Lights – Redmond

This is a celebration of the many different holidays and traditions, and it is a one of a kind educational experience you will not want to miss. Slowly stroll down Redmond Central and find yourself at the Luminary Walk, listen to live music and carolers, all while witnessing a beautiful tree lighting.

*Small Tip: Check the website before you leave for parking instructions.

4. Seattle Christmas Ship Festival

This is a classic Seattle Christmas tradition you will not want to miss. Sail around on the Argosy Cruise while listening to the onboard choirs singing Christmas carols broadcasting over a state of the art speaker system. The best part of all is that people bring their own boats all lit up for the celebration and follow suit for a wonderful parade along the Puget Sound.

*Small Tip: Book tickets well in advance because this one is popular, and they do sell out!
