These are some great suggestions and gave me some new ideas! I do think you should mention that not all are free (or only free one day a month) Items 15,16 and 17 come to mind…Deb - March 30th, 2010
Thanks for the list! Agreed though, many of these are not free most of the time. Also, finding current contact information from some of your links has proved challenging. I’d particularly like to find the link for the Darigold farm. The site that you’ve linked doesn’t have any information about tours. Thank you.seattle mama - April 9th, 2010
Why, in the intro paragraph, does it say “in the heart of Oregon”? Seattle is in Washington, folks.Mia - April 16th, 2010

I like these things but I’m looking more for something in the fall, something where I can meet new friends and just hang out with people I can really have fun with (not dating, just making friends)Liza - October 3rd, 2011

Number 12 is in Skagway Alaska, not anywhere near Seattle.Sandy Moriarty - April 4th, 2013
No, #12 is located in Seattle. It’s in the Pioneer Square area of downtown Seattle. It is a free museum always and highlights the journeys and travails of those who participated in the Gold Rush (and many bought their supplies here in Seattle before heading up north either by boat or treacherous road) in the late 1880’s. It’s fabulous!Debbie Chan - May 15th, 2013
