Where We Loved to Play in 2012: Favorite Outings for Seattle Kids and Families
1. Jetty Island, Everett
We want more of these: The park, indoor play space, beach, pool that you can visit over and over again kids and never get bored. So in search, of new best-kept secrets, we asked Facebook readers about the gems they discovered in 2012.
The most-cited, not surprisingly, was Jetty Island.
Located just five minutes via free foot ferry from the Everett waterfront, Jetty Island features over two miles of sandy beaches and warm, shallow water that appears to go on forever, plus nifty free programs throughout the summer, from puppet shows to nature walks. It's open from July to September. "Always a hit with the kids."
