Welcome to Everett - Day 1

Welcome to Everett, Washington, located just about an hour north of Seattle, WA. My coworkers and I got to spend a few days here before our work week and had a great experience. We always try to make the most of our work trips by exploring the local area. 

Where to Stay

Courtyard by Marriott Seattle Everett Downtown
@WeekendPostcards
Nice and clean hotel with on-site bar. No breakfast is included in your stay but staff is kind and helpful. Located near the heart of downtown making it easy to walk to many destinations in this guide. They offer on-site parking in a garage below the hotel.

For a delicious brunch bite, we went to Vintage Cafe next. I am a huge breakfast lover and their good range of choices was delightful. Highly recommend their eggs benedict and hash browns.

This quaint little town is the home of Funko Pop HQ and store. Inside you can wander around the hundreds of Pop options, featuring many iconic movie and tv show characters. To get a but more creative, you can even build your own Funko Pop to look however you'd like. We spent about 45 minutes enjoying everything the store has to offer, We also went home as the proud owners of a few more Funko Pops to add to our ever growing collection.

For a nice evening in town, head over to 16Eleven. This place gets busy quickly, so we highly recommend making reservations to guarantee your spot. They serve a good mix of salads, steaks and seafood in addition to other small plates. Finish off your evening by heading down the block to The Colby Club for a nice cocktail or mocktail. My personal favorite drink is the honeybee.

Take a walk through downtown to some of the local shops. We stumbled upon Petrikor by accident and found they have some of the coolest home decor items, wide range of gardening supplies and provisions. Stock up on everything you need and more.

@WeekendPostcards
Adorable local shop with gardening items, home goods, Whalebone magazines, and zero waste items. The manager is super kind too and has good recommendations for items.

For lunch go to Eight ball Cafe or Anthony's homeport. Depending on what you're in the mood for both are great options. For wood fired pizza and small sandwich bites, Eight Ball Cafe is the place to go. For seafood and being right on the water, Anthony's is the place to be.

Honorable Mentions - Great Additions to Check out

With only a few short days in Everett, we weren't able to make it to all of the places we originally wanted to. Here are our honorable mentions or other top recommendations to check out if you're in town or need a great alternative for anything mentioned above.

Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens
@WeekendPostcards
We would recommend this in the late spring, summer and early fall when the majority of the flowers are in bloom. An easy walk and great way to enjoy the outdoors without going on a full hike.

About an hour and a half drive northeast of town is North Casacades National Park. It is one of the Top 10 least visited parks in all of the U.S. and it happens to be one of the few that there is no fee required to enter the park. If you have a few days in the area, we highly recommend adding this side trip to your schedule. The views are absolutely worth it. 

North Cascades National Park
@WeekendPostcards
Please pack and plan accordingly to be out in nature. There are vault toilets at many trailheads and this is an area where wildlife is very common (bears, mountain goats, cougars, etc). We hiked the Blue Lake Trail and it was stunning.
