From sightseeing to hidden gems, find out what makes the city unique with the help of the locals who know it best.
Science Museum
“A highly underrated and often overlooked tourist destination - a personal favorite of mine in this area. The museum itself is not significant. However, I do highly recommend calling ahead and booking a Boeing factory tour. You will get to see inside the world's largest building (by volume) and where most Boeing widebody jets are produced. Please check the Future of Flight website as there are height restrictions for children. Even if you are not able to book the tour, just driving by the factory is a sight to behold. ”

“If you're longing for the big water, head to the Everett waterfront and enjoy fine dining at Anthony's. Seafood is a specialty, but no matter what you order, you can expect it to be wonderful.”

Place to shop
“Antique shops and charming boutiques mixed in with restaurants and tasting rooms line this charming main street which is usually bustling with pedestrians. Fun activities happen year round: wine walks, zombie walks, trick or treating, Christmas tree lighting -- downtown Snohomish is a must-visit!”

Entertainment
“Travelers who aspire to build their own airplanes or who just want to learn more about how planes are manufactured definitely will want to tour the Boeing factory where 747s, 777s and the 787s (Dreamliner) are made. This Boeing plant is located in Everett, about 25 freeway miles north of Seattle. Operated by the Future of Flight Aviation Center, these are the only tours of commercial airplane factories offered in North America. Besides touring the factory at Paine Field, visitors get an opportunity to design their own planes.”

“Great seafood! My fav is the crab melt sandwich & crab or shrimp Louie salad. Best outdoor seating on warm weekdays (it's located on busy corner so it can be noisy outside certain times of day).”
