Considered the home base for reunion groups traveling to the Pacific Northwest, Seattle Southside checks all the boxes for planners of military reunions.
When it comes to accessibility, our three communities are 10 minutes or less from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and 15 minutes from downtown Seattle, with complimentary airport shuttles to hotels.
When it comes to hospitality and affordability, there are more than 30 hotels with meeting and event space, and hotel rates are typically priced 20 to 30 percent less than downtown Seattle (with many including special reunion pricing).
Like many unique groups, military reunion attendees have particular needs and interests while gathering together, including what they do. Take a look at some special tours, historical experiences and memorable dining spots to help round out your itinerary.
Located in The Museum of Flight, Wings Café is an enjoyable and convenient spot for group dining after the tour. The 132-seat eatery features a substantial menu from snacks and pastries to healthy cold classics like salads and grilled chicken on pita, and hot entrees like burgers, wings and chili. The café also serves domestic and microbrew beers. Afterward, relax on the airport patio and take in all of the runway action.
Explore a piece of maritime history with your group by touring the USS Turner Joy (DD-951) Naval Destroyer Museum Ship. Located in Bremerton, Washington, attendees can take a quick 30-minute ferry ride from Seattle across the Puget Sound to see the famed Navy ship. As the last Forrest Sherman class destroyer built, the ship remains close to her original 1959 configuration and has been restored to reflect the appearance during her active years between 1960 and 1982.
Your group can experience a good old-fashioned diner and aviation museum in one unique setting at Randy’s Restaurant. Randy’s is one of Tukwila’s most beloved and iconic dining spots and has been a staple for more than three decades. From the nostalgic atmosphere and the civilian-military artifacts and memorabilia to the charming staff and, of course, the food, your group will feel like they’re eating among family as they’re transported back in time.
