Your group only has a couple of days to explore Seattle's Backyard. What are the musts? How can you provide some ideas your attendees will love?
We've got you covered. Take a look at these memorable morning, afternoon and evening group options to help round out your itinerary.
Seattle Southside's three communities are 10 minutes or less from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and easily navigated by way of the Link Light Rail, the Metro or several other group transportation options. Whether your group flies or drives in, they'll have plenty of time to get settled and start exploring.
One of the top attractions in Seattle Southside is the world-renowned Museum of Flight, featuring more than 150 of the world's most awe-inspiring airplanes—like the SR-71 Blackbird, the original Air Force One and more. As one of the area's unique meeting and event spaces, you can creatively maximize the attendee experience by planning a group tour and event in one setting!
Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar at Cedarbrook Lodge creates the perfect setting for an evening event—whether your group is staying at the Lodge or in one of the nearby meeting hotels. Plan a social mixer out on the terrace or a delectable dinner with locally sourced menu items.
Plan a pre-meeting fuel-up for your attendees at one of Seattle Southside's delicious breakfast spots. Some favorites include Waterleaf Restaurant & Bar at Hotel Interurban and Coffee Garden Restaurant at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport (featuring the largest event space in a Seattle Southside hotel).
After a day of networking and education, attendees can take a relaxing stroll through the stunning gardens at the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden, situated on approximately 11 acres and adjacent to the SeaTac Community Center. This living museum with event space lets Mother Nature provide the backdrop for a beautiful (and fragrant!) gathering.
Later, plan for a group dining or happy hour at Duke's Chowder House, with event space for private dining available. Introduce your attendees to some of the Pacific Northwest's best seafood (think sustainably sourced and savory dishes like award-winning clam chowder and wild Copper River Coho salmon)!
