Things to do & places to visit in Everett, Washington, United States
Birthplace of Boeing airplanes, Everett is a lively coastal city just north of Seattle. Its waterfront, once a highly industrialized area home to a naval base and large paper mill, has recently undergone a transformative redevelopment as a locale for seaside shopping, dining and festivities. The city's numerous parks, boasting free live concerts every summer, are excellent for hiking or relaxing, while the coast is a popular spot for sailing, water sports and whale watching excursions.

- 5.0 Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum (308 reviews)
Well done! So much to see.
Thursday: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Military Museums
The aircraft, vehicles and artifacts in the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum are rare treasures of military technology — a testament to the era’s engineering skill and humanity’s spirit during the world conflicts of the 20th century. On rotation in our working hangar are military artifacts from the United States, Britain, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan, acquired by Paul G. Allen and restored with unparalleled authenticity to share with the public. FHCAM is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to educating people about these rare historic aircraft and artifacts. The museum is currently experiencing rapid growth, bringing in exciting new wonders like the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, de Havilland Mosquito and dozens of new artifacts in 2017. See more..

- 5.0 Lazy Boy Brewing (9 reviews)
Worth looking for!!!
Thursday: 3:00 PM - 9:00 PM Spent 2-3 hours Breweries
This is not the easiest brewery to find, but is well worth the effort. This brew pub is in an industrial area near the Everett Mall. It was mostly locals when we were there, and everyone was very friendly. By the time we left, we felt like regulars. It is family and pet friendly. The service was terrific, and so helpful. The beer was quite good. We had a flight and liked each one. My favorite was the IPA. They don't have a kitchen but some customers had brought in a pizza, so it seems that you can bring your own food. There were also free pretzels to munch on. We had a great experience here and will be back. See more..
- 4.5 Imagine Children's Museum (242 reviews)
An above average Children's museum
Thursday: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Children's Museums
This is a very fun Children's Museum. They have recently expanded it to add even more great activities for children from toddlers up to early preteen. Indoor and outdoor activities and a nice open space to either enjoy a lunch/snack that you bring or buy some simple food. The only minor downside to us is the parking. The lot next door is quite expensive, especially considering the admission ticket are pricey. I wish parking would be included or at least discounted. There are some free parking spaces, but you have to move your car every 90 minutes. It is clean but it would be nice to have hand sanitizer available. There are dispensers but most were empty. See more..

- 4.5 Howarth Park (73 reviews)
Thursday: 6:00 AM - 10:00 PM Parks
We really enjoy Howarth Park beach! You can park either on the north side, down by the tracks, or on the south side up by the little park. Either way, you must cross the enclosed foot bridge above the tracks, then climb down several levels of the circular stairway to reach the beach. It is fun to stand on the foot bridge and look down at the trains passing below or gaze down the tracks into the distance. The beach has never been very crowded when we have been there, perhaps because it is a climb to both get there and to leave. But it is worth it. This beach is a gem. If you park in the north parking lot, you get the pleasure of walking through the forest a short ways, and crossing a sweet little creek. It's beautiful. See more..
- 4.5 Grand Avenue Park (49 reviews)
A must-go place to visit - day or night
The new pedestrian bridge is amazing to visit at night! You can choose walking the ramp or the steps. There is also an elevator which can be reached by walking the ramp. Very few visitors when we were there around 7 pm. Great view onto the marina. Of course if you go there during daylight you can admire the entrance to the bridge, and the walk in the expansive park with its fabulous views. See more..

- 4.5 Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens (42 reviews)
Experience the JOY of the season - bring your family and camera!
What a joy to see the gardens all decorated with thousands of lights! The paths are well lit, wide enough for roll chairs and walkers. A lovely event for families of all ages. Everybody was wearing masks, and there was JOY all around! We even saw friends having a tailgate party in the parking lot, all well distanced. See more..
- 4.5 Everett Memorial Stadium (34 reviews)
Short Season Minor League Baseball at its Best
Arenas & Stadiums
Like baseball? Want to have a great night, with entertainment, food and drink that is cheaper than taking the family to the movies. Then go watch the Aquasox play at Memorial Stadium. Tickets are cheap and the park is small enough that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Do use the free parking lot, instead of the paid one to save money. The walk is not that bad. Also look at the website when choosing what day to go. At different time of the season, there are always food and drink specials, as well as special "family" ticket packages. We took our family of 4, the game, plus food, drinks (including beer), came to under 45$USD. Can't do that at the movie theater. See more..
- 4.5 Jetty Island (27 reviews)

- 4.5 At Large Brewing (13 reviews)
Great local brewery
Spent 2-3 hours Breweries
Love this place! Always delicious beer and great outdoor seating. It’s definitely a “hidden gem” because even though it’s just off a main road it sits low and is not easily noticed. We love that you can bring your own food as they don’t serve any. Nice views of the water as well. See more..
- 4.5 Everett Farmers Market (10 reviews)
Such a great find!
Thursday: Farmers Markets
Stayed in Everett ( because downtown Seattle charges resort fees + $40/ night for parking) and went to the farmers market in the morning on a whim. It was a great market with such a great mix of fresh produce and artisian breads, jams , BBQ sauces, kombucha, wine and distillery tastings, jewelry, pottery, glass work, fresh beautiful bouquets of flowers and some of the most unique offerings I've seen at a market! And the food being served up looked amazing and just a short walk to the waterfront to enjoy your treats. A must see in the area! See more..

- 4.5 Narbeck Wetland Sanctuary Park (8 reviews)
Bring the family, even dogs are allowed there
Bodies of Water • Nature & Wildlife Areas • Parks • Forests
We've been hiking this wetlands ever since it opened a long time ago. Now there are many trees, all reaching up to get sunlight. It's so relaxing to go there after a hectic day. We went again a couple of days ago, and even though it was a hot day, it was a cooling. On the internal loop - mostly boardwalk- it's intriguing to look into the murky water. There was a contest between the bullfrogs who can be the loudest! Lots of little ducks in the water, too. The outside had lots of salmon berries ready to be picked, but beware of hungry mosquitoes right now. Lots of parking available. Restroom at the parking area. See more..
