Summer in Belltown- The Coolest Place to Be.

Posted on May 20, 2012

Can you almost feel it? Summer, warm air smelling of saltwater, people smiling at eachother. Well it is ALMOST here! So I wanted to give you a heads up for what’s on the docket in Belltown for Summer 2012. Update your calendar so that you can make the most of it!! This is not an exhaustive list, so please include anything that I left out in the comments section. Enjoy!

Olympic Sculpture Park-

Think free outdoor Zumba and Yoga classes all summer long! I compiled a list of those free classes in This Google Doc.  Also check out the complete OSP Calendar here - http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/calendar/calendar.asp

Seattle Center, Movies at the Mural-

Outdoor summer movies: grab a blanket and some take-out and head to Seattle Center to watch a movie under the stars (and a space needle). Here is the line-up for Movies at the Mural.

Seattle Center Playway-

Do you have children? Are you tired of boring old parks for playtime? Here is the coolest place to take them to play in the city this summer. 250 foot zip-line for the bigger kids and rotating inflatable rides and bouncy things for the smaller ones. http://www.seattlecenter.com/playway/

Concerts at the Mural-

Concerts at the Mural with local upcoming bands. Check out the dates Here.

Special Events at Seattle Center-

Seafair, cultural festival and the seattle symphony community celebration! Details Here.

Downtown Seattle Parks Events-

A huge array of cool events and festivals at downtown parks. Check it out Here.

P.S. Has anyone seen the huge monstrosity of a Ferris Wheel on Pier 57? Obviously the waterfront will be packed with visitors this year. A ferris wheel, arcade, the aquarium, water taxis, sailing rides, etc.

Belltown continues to be the best place to be this summer and the coolest place to live in the greater Seattle area. See you out in the neighborhood this summer!
