Guide to Seattle Art Walks

If you like interesting art, visiting with artists, wandering through neighborhoods, museums and cafés, an Art Walk is a great activity, no matter what time of year.

These Art Walks offer a free and easy opportunity to enjoy the arts in neighborhoods across the city, and by bringing the community together, they support both Seattle’s talented artists and small businesses. Interesting Fact: the First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square (started in 1981) was in fact the first in the nation, and set the stage for over a dozen Art Walks now held regularly throughout the city – and nationwide!

Seattle Farmers Markets Guide

Farmers markets have traditionally been a gathering of the tribe as much as a collection of freshly harvested fruits and vegetables.  In recent years the culture and excitement behind farmers markets has expanded to become kind of a low-key celebration of urban community and country food. It’s a place to eat, drink, enjoy music and network with neighbors. So grab your tote bags and head out to one or more of Seattle’s fantastic markets!

What’s better than a beautiful home in Phinney Ridge? A fully remodeled beautiful home in Phinney Ridge. This home might as well be brand spanking new with all of the high-quality materials and thoughtful touches made to the place. Not only that, but it’s completely stocked with areas to entertain. Invite your family and friends over for some serious Seahawks action in the large lower-level bonus room, play Ping-Pong or pool, and of course, tend bar. But it doesn’t stop there because the backyard is another perfect place to host BBQ’s and bonfires. The large master suite upstairs includes a walk-out balcony and spa-like marble bathroom with double sinks, soaking tub, and shower. Easily walk or bike to Green Lake, Woodland Park Zoo, restaurants, and shops. Wrap all that up and we’d say this place makes one pretty package.
