Free Tip of the Day: Visitors Edition

We have guests in town, and as much as we want to show them a good time, we also don’t want to spend crazy money. So we concocted a bunch of free activities that are free, touristy, not touristy, and maybe even a little fun.

Sunset Tavern hosts Kung Fu Grindhouse. Sure, the food and beer aren’t free, but the gory bloodbash is. Happens every Monday, once a month.

Try to find Bruce Lee’s Grave. I’ve attempted to do this a handful of times with no success. Today is the day!

Green Lake and Gas Works. Nothing says free like a man-made lake and a park that shares its space with an old refinery.

Thursday: Henry Art Museum is free every Thursday and who doesn’t like trying to find a parking spot in the middle of UW to see something for free?

Friday: Pike Place Market. Duh.

    Bruce Lee’s grave, head up the middle, and right before you reach the crest of the tallest hill (where the Blethens are buried I think), veer just to the right. Look for people standing around, it’s usually got at least two or three. That’s how I found it before. :P

    Here’s more help finding the Lee gravesites (near the bottom of the post).
    Paying a visit to Bruce and Brandon Lee.
    If you have a few minutes, also wander around the upper circle and spot the sites of significant Seattle families. There’s a Japanese memorial area on the north end of the cemetary that’s worth a ramble, too.

    What does "every Monday, once a month" mean?
