Sweet Necessities

Find it: 1215 Griffin Ave.

Not only does Sweet Necessities boast five stars on Yelp, but the shop also earned the crown for best ice cream in Washington by Insider in 2019. But kids don't care about this stuff. They'll just love the Snoqualmie-brand gourmet ice cream in unique flavors such as black licorice, or more traditional, kid-friendly flavors such as chocolate. This shop also sells fudge, salted caramels, candy, loose leaf tea, coffee and wine.

Dwight Garrett Park

Find it: 2222 Porter St.

Dwight Garrett Park offers a play structure, skate park, tennis courts, pickleball courts, greenspace and a basketball court. While the kids play, parents can enjoy the view of Mount Rainier.
