We’re in the thick of summer and enjoying this incredible sunshine right now, but let’s be real here, the gray isn’t far away. But you can get ahead of the gloom and look forward to the rainy days by planning weekend adventures with a little help from our friends over at Redfin. They put together the perfect list of things to do around the Seattle area once the rainy weather starts approaching.
They’ve included two highlights from the City of Tukwila and are spot on with these recommendations. Check them out!
The Museum of Flight
When the rain comes, The Museum of Flight has got you covered. Located in Tukwila, play, stroll, contemplate and even learn a few things while being sheltered from the rain. Forget the weather in a windowless gallery, or engage your seasons of emotions surrounded by a glass building that touches the sky.
Seattle Chocolate Factory tour
Everyone knows Seattle for its coffee, but craft chocolate is the true gem of the Emerald City. To try some of the best chocolate in the area, Experience Tukwila recommends “Indulging your sweet tooth with a tour of the Seattle Chocolate Factory. Founded in 1991, this Seattle staple creates bold new chocolatey creations that are a must-try for everyone passing through.”
So, next time you’re looking for something to do when the weather has you trapped inside, just head on over to Tukwila!
Is it cold outside? Yes. Has the sun been replaced by a moody expanse of clouds and an omnipresent drizzle that appears to be falling from all directions? Absolutely. But is that going to stop you from getting out of the house and making the most of this PNW winter? No way!
Here are a few ideas for keeping active and enjoying some serious fun this season.

This renowned collection of incredible air and space crafts, artifacts, galleries, and exhibits is just the right spark for your curiosity to light your way through the winter darkness.
