Free Things To Do In The Seattle Area

by on February 27, 2013

This list has adult fun, outdoor activities, family outings and more: Here are a few of the FREE Kid’s activities:

The interactive KidsQuest Children’s Museum is free from 5 to 8 p.m. Fridays in nearby Bellevue’s Factoria Mall. Climb the giant indoor tree house to enjoy a tea party or tinker with tools in the museum’s hands-on garage.

The University of Washington Botanic Gardens’ Elisabeth C. Miller Library offers free family programs Saturday mornings at 10 a.m., geared for children ages 2-8, with stories and activities that celebrate little tykes’ green thumbs, from harvest time apples to May flowers.


Nestled on Magnolia Bluff, Discovery Park, Seattle’s largest city park, overlooks Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains with 534 acres (216 hectares) of tidal beaches, open meadows, sea cliffs, forest groves, active sand dunes, thickets, and streams. Check out Native American art and handicrafts at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center.

With a prime Capitol Hill locale, climbing the popular water tower at Volunteer Park offers the “best free view in Seattle,” as voted by readers of Seattle Weekly.

Sunday afternoons, boat rides are free at the Center for Wooden Boats, a free hands-on museum that explains maritime traditions and aims to preserve the art of handcrafted wooden boats, located just north of downtown.

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    • I got the following answer from wordpress. Hope it helps. Thanks for reading 🙂

      You cannot do this for him/her. They have to act. Here are brief instructions for unsubscribing from a blog if the person has a username account:

      1. click the “unsubscribe” link on the emails of the posts received at the very bottom of the emails.
      2. go here >!/read/edit/ locate and click the “x” next to any blog there to unfollow it and no longer receive posts in the Reader or by email.
      3. go to the blog in question and click the unfollow/follow link on your Admin bar.

      If they do not have a username account then 1. applies.
      1. click the “unsubscribe” link on the emails of the posts received at the very bottom of the emails.

  2. I love this list! I’ve never been to Discovery Park but I hope to go soon. It sounds awesome! I noticed you mentioned KidsQuest but left out many of the other museum days offered in the Seattle area (like Museum of Flight and the Living Computer Museum… LCM has a great educational kids play area!) Anyway, there’s more information on that here if you’re interested:
