Welcome to a new week Seattle. Things are looking pretty good. After all, the sun is out and the city is coming alive again. So we might as well all have some fun this week. With that in mind, here are 8 things to do at home and around Seattle this week.

Intro to Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest

If you’re really about that PNW lifestyle, this online workshop might pique your interest. And either way, we think this is a great opportunity to learn something new about what’s in nature around us.

Check out Queer and Dear

This exhibition takes window shopping to the next level. Because through July 31 you can see the works of 16 queer artists at Saltstone Ceramics in Wallingford. And best of all they’re in the window so you can look without having to worry about being in a confined space.

Preservation Station: A Free Film Series by Historic Seattle

This free digital programming series will be showcasing films from Seattle’s past. So if you’re into seeing cities before they were modernized you’ll probably really like this. And either way, it’s just one more way to learn about Seattle and see it in a new way.

Go to a drive-in movie

Old-timey activities are coming back in style and this one we’re pretty pumped about. And in the last week, two new drive-in theatre locations have opened up. One in Marymoor Park and one at Canlis!

Give yourself a staycation

We pulled together some fun things for you to do to make you feel like a tourist in your own city. So we hope these fun ideas show you some new places in your city and fuel your desire to find more!

Check out your local Farmer’s Market

At this point, many of the city’s neighborhood farmer’s markets have reopened. So if you haven’t been in a while, now’s the time! Be sure to stock up on some delicious stone fruit and picnic essentials to make the most of your week.

Okay folks we hope you enjoy these things to do at home and around Seattle this week. And either way, be sure to get outside and enjoy that sun. Because we all know we need a lot more of it.
