Just 30 minutes north of Seattle, Everett has waterfront dreams are made of with perfect views of the water and incredible food, drinks, attractions and places to stay. Your perfect day in Everett is right at your fingertips and with so much to do, you can’t stop the fun! With so much to do and see, we did the planning for you so you get right to adventuring. Here’s just one way to have the perfect waterfront day in Everett. 

Start your day with an espresso and a bagel sandwich from Seas the Day Café. Get there early to get a great morning meal that you can grab and go or sit back and enjoy. You might even catch part of the sunrise – as it rises over the Cascade Mountains, the pinks, blues, reds and oranges it casts over the water are breathtaking. 

Once you’ve fueled up on caffeine and breakfast, the waterfront offers all kinds of fun activities for the whole family.  For the first part of your day, we recommend renting a kayak or paddleboard from Kayakshare so, you can adventure around Port Garnder. Paddle over the Jetty Island for some fun in the sun and 2 miles of warm sand to explore and play. Don’t forget your water, sun screen and extra clothes to change into, ‘cause the adventure doesn’t stop there.

After soaking in the sun on the water, it’s time to be head back to the land and take in the sights, smells and sounds the Puget Sound is famous for. Choose between the many walking trails or going to watch the sunset at one of Everett’s beautiful parks overlooking the water.  

Hotel Indigo is right on the water so it’s time to head to the hotel! Staying at the waterfront doesn’t get easier (or more luxurious) than this. You might even be able to see the sunset from your room. The beautiful hotel is a quiet location with all the waterfront amenities. Now that you’ve settled in, it’s time for happy hour! 

See our guide on our favorite happy hour spots and explore new favorites, there are so many places to choose from. What are your taste buds in the mood for cider, brews, beer, or signature cocktails? Bluewater Distilling has signature cocktails that will knock your socks off! Limoncello drop, hot shot, the old man and the sea, and so many more to choose from. You might even have to flip a coin to decide what to drink with so many options, but you’ll love the fresh flavors no matter what you choose. 

Next up: dinner! With less than a couple minutes of a walk to Scuttlebutt Brewery from Hotel Indigo, you have some of the best food and micro-brews around.
