August 2020

This month’s feature story examines the myriad complex issues facing our educational leaders as they plot out safe and equitable plans for the coming school year.

As August dawns, we encourage you to abandon the futility of trying to predict what the fall will bring for your kids, and instead carve out time during these long and reliably gorgeous days of summer for some PNW-style outdoor family fun. Hit the road to experience the Wonders of Wenatchee, suggests Elisa Murray, editor of “52 Seattle Adventures With Kids.” River rafting, waterfront park play, biking trails, apple picking, dazzling sunshine and more await you there.

Closer to home, we’ve rounded up 15 surefire ways to safely enjoy these beautiful days of August. When your bucket o’ fun is running a bit dry, grab your kids for a ghost town adventure, a tug-of-war battle or a beach-bumming day exploring this magical place we are lucky enough to call home.
