Seattle Southside is this place to be for adventures on the extreme side!
There’s plenty of fun to be had here for the adrenaline junkie in all of us. Here’s a three-day itinerary for those looking to get a little more thrill out of their vacation.
Let the fun begin in Puget Sound on a scuba diving tour with Seattle Dive Tours! Swim around exploring the aquatic home of starfish, urchins, and rockfish on a half-day guided tour. Dive tours are a must for lovers of marine biology and it’s not uncommon to come across a Giant Pacific Octopus or a Wolf eel to get the heart pounding!
If you chose to do the hike, then you’ll have some time left for another thrilling aerial adventure. Just across the parking lot from The Museum of Flight, sits some rather striking red and yellow open-cockpit biplanes. If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to fly in the early 1900s, now’s your chance! Olde Thyme Aviation will take you on a historic flight around some of the most iconic Seattle landmarks! After this flight, it’ll be hard to go back to the regular, closed-cabin commercial planes.
Next stop, Sykart, for some high-octane go-kart racing. This isn’t your nephew’s go-kart track…In fact, you have to have a driver’s license just to race (with the exception of youth track days)! Once you’ve raced at Sykart, no other go-kart will ever compare!
If your need for speed has been satisfied and you’re feeling hungry, stop by Mizuki Buffet for an Asian/American smorgasbord of flavor. This isn’t some lackluster run-of-the-mill buffet. Mizuki specializes in sushi, but they’ve got plenty of hot and fresh delicacies from the far East and closer to home. What’s more, the dessert buffet is exquisite. Once you’ve had your fill, head to your final stop on this thrilling journey, Virtual Sports.
Virtual Sports has brought the experience of Call of Duty to the real world with COD game modes using training rifles instead of classic laser tag toys. Strap on your tactical vest and go team vs. team in “king of the hill” and “team deathmatch” games. Or, if you crave a little more fear in your experience, try zombie mode where you battle the undead horde (actors) in an effort to make it out alive.
Whether you’re in search of a restaurant near you, seafood restaurants, quaint café, Indian restaurants, family-friendly restaurants, Italian restaurants or fine dining, you’ll find Seattle Southside ready to serve.
Go ahead, stay an extra night.
