There's nothing quite like the holiday season. Something magical happens around this time of year that makes these cold, dark days seem like the warmest and brightest, and Everett is no exception to that magic. We go all-in to celebrate and make this season one to remember.

We've got a ho-ho-whole bunch of holiday happenings in Everett this season to help you and your crew celebrate safely. Before you order all your gifts online and spend yet another holiday binge-watching Netflix, check out all of the ways Everett's Wintertide season can bring you some holiday cheer.

Let's face it, flying to a tropical paradise this holiday season is probably not in the cards. Cozy up with a book in a room overlooking the Salish Sea. It’s the right kind of respite from this hectic year. Make a weekend out of your Wintertide adventures.
