Did you know that there are a ton of fun but unusual things to do in Seattle? There are! These are things that are entertaining but out-of-the-way activities that it's possible even if you live in Seattle you might not know about.

Check out these cool, fun, and unusual activities in Seattle:

  1. Visit the local troll. Yes, you heard that right, there's a troll in Seattle. The troll hides under the George Washington Memorial Bridge in Seattle and you don't want to miss him! The troll even has a name Troll-O-Ween. Since the bridge is located at a dead-end, it can be difficult to find parking the closer you get to him. It is recommended you park several blocks away and then walk to visit the troll.
  2. Hear the Sound Garden at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Western Service Center campus. The Sound Garden was created by Seattle artist Douglas R. Hollis. When the wind blows the sculpture makes a variety of sounds including whistles, murmurs, and howls.
  3. Seattle has a lovely café called the Meowtropolitan Cat Café. If you've heard of some of the cat-friendly cafés popping up in Asia, then think of this as the same thing on a much smaller scale. Whether you love cats or are looking to adopt one then you don't want to miss visiting this unique café. Because it's stressful for cats (and because social distancing is still a thing), you must schedule a visit as only a small number of people can be in the café at a time.
  4. Go sailing for free. There are very few places you can actually go boating and not have to pay for it, but Seattle has one of those places. Drop into the Center for Wooden Boats on Lake Union. On any given Sunday you can visit and go out on the water on a number of different types of boats, including but not limited to electric boats, schooners, and even yachts. In order to participate, you have to sign up early, signing up starts at 10:00 am.
  5. Drop by the National Nordic Museum. A general admission ticket can cost you $18 but Groupon sometimes has discounts. This museum covers everything Nordic and has beautiful exhibits. The current exhibit is called Among Forests and Lakes: Landscape Masterpieces from the Finnish National Gallery and is well worth seeing!

Whether you're visiting Seattle for the first time or you live here, all these places are fun to visit and off the beaten path from what most think of when they think of visiting Seattle.
