THINGS TO DO IN EVERETT WASHINGTON
ISLAND ADVENTURES WHALE WATCHING TOURS
Gray whales make one of the longest migrations of any mammal on earth. Every year they swim over 10,000 miles round-trip between Mexico's nursery lagoons and feeding grounds in the Arctic. Right now they're passing through Everett and you can see them by heading out on a whale watching tour that departs from the Everett Marina. More info here.

EAT + DRINK
We've been doing a lot of burger research (too much, honestly) for the EVVY awards. Last week, we checked out Billie On Gourmet, and Mikie's. We've been to Mikie's dozens of times. It's a classic! But, it was our first time going to Billie On Gourmet and we've gotta say, it was pretty dang good. The prices were fair and the burgers were delicious and huge. We loved the eclectic burgers on the menu, like the Korean-inspired Bulgogi burger.
ON THE BLOG
We started a new blog section last week that we're calling 'Everett Top 5.' They'll be short & simple top five lists of Everett's best things. Best is a totally subjective word, so we're inviting all of you Everett peeps to submit your top five lists. There are no real rules as to what a top five list should be about, just keep it clean and try to stay positive. You can email us your top five list at email@example.com.
Check out our first Everett Top 5 list all about picnic spots, here.
Also on the blog is the announcement Everett's best happy hour EVVY award winner. Check that out, here.
