Explore Kirkland’s Endless Activities

November 30th, 2017

Kirkland Marina

Downtown Kirkland is a vibrant, waterfront neighborhood with a variety of activities, shops, restaurants and things to do.

It's safe to say that boredom is not a common state here.

The best part is, we’re located smack dab in the middle - right in the heart of downtown.

Taste your way through the array of restaurants and pubs.

Shop and explore the downtown stores and boutiques.

Catch a show at the Kirkland Performance Center.

Play a round of mini golf and enjoy a beer at Flatstick Pub.

Paint and sip wine at Canvas.

Picnic and take in the views at the multiple waterfront parks.

Depending on the season and weather, paddle board on Lake Washington.

The possibilities are endless.

Not only are there a variety of things to do in Kirkland, but Seattle is also located just a short drive west of Kirkland.

Some Seattle area activities and things to do include:

  • - Pike Place Market
  • - Space Needle
  • - Smith Tower
  • - Seattle Aquarium
  • - Woodland Park Zoo
  • - Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room
  • - Seahawks football or Sounders soccer game at CenturyLink field

Enjoy wine? Woodinville Wine Country is located just 20 minutes northeast of Kirkland with more than 90 wineries and tasting rooms. You are sure to have a grape time (pun intended).

We make it easy for guests to explore the neighborhood.

Take advantage of our complimentary bicycle rental and ride around town or our complimentary SUV service will take you within a 10-mile radius of the hotel.

Just like us, Kirkland is also very dog-friendly. Your four-legged best friend will enjoy walking around downtown, tagging along at dog-friendly restaurants, and swimming and playing fetch in a variety of waterfront parks.

Kirkland is your perfect home base city and offers the best of both worlds with its location.

It is situated far enough from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, allowing a peaceful, tranquil experience, but close enough to an array of attractions and activities.

Come experience Kirkland today.
