This Weekend in Seattle

Looking for something to do this weekend?

To me, there are few things I enjoy more than a good outdoor market, and those found in Seattle are no different. Where else can you view what local artists are doing, have some kettle corn and buy fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers all while absoring the vibe of the city and having a latte?
You can also:
* watch cooking demos
* sample fresh produce
* listen to live music
* obtain information from local non-profit organizations
* participate in special activities for children

Maybe a little ride around Lake Washington? Have you seen the lake lately? I don’t mean at 60 mph, ok, 35 mph across I-90.. I mean have you seen the lake? It’s really quite lovely, and worth taking in at a more leisurely pace.
Sponsored by Group Health, it’s Group Health Bicycle Saturdays and Sundays

General Parks Information: (206)684-4075

Bicycle along Lake Washington Boulevard south of Mount Baker Beach and around Seward Park. Lake Washington Boulevard will be closed to motorized traffic from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m..

Have you been calling your mother to let her know you’re thinking of her and you miss her? Mother’s Day is coming up. Maybe you could take mom to the zoo after a nice brunch.
Make your day easier! FREE Metro bus shuttles are being provided from various locations to get you to the zoo hassle free and no need to worry about parking. Shuttles will depart from Metro Park & Rides at Northgate, South Renton and South Kirkland.

Maybe Science Fiction is more your thing?
The Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame presents visitors with thought provoking, entertaining experiences that promote awareness and appreciation of science fiction’s significance and value, and at the same time pay homage to its notable creators and their creations.

Or in my case, the Discovery Park lighthouse is open to the public for the first time in 15 years. That’s where you’ll find me…
Discovery Park is a 534 acre natural area park operated by the Seattle Parks and Recreation. It is the largest city park in Seattle, and occupies most of the former Fort Lawton site.
