You might think you have exhausted all the best spots to take your family in SnoCo, but there’s always more to explore. Pack up your masks, hand sanitizer and water for an adventure to northern Snohomish County!
Farther from some of SnoCo’s urban centers, the northern region of the county is the perfect place for a quiet, comforting escape. Here are some of the ways your family can have fun and support local businesses.
On your way up north, stop by Nature Together, a retail shop for outdoor enthusiasts. Here, you’ll find gifts, toys, clothing, jewelry and more! There’s something for every member of the family. Nature Together also offers children’s outdoor school to get kiddos familiar with and curious about nature.
For your next stop, head up to Willow and Jim’s Country Café nestled between the Stillaguamish River and South Slough in Silvana. From savory sandwiches to homemade pies, this cozy eatery will give your family comfort and full bellies on the way to your next stop. As a staple in the community for over 15 years, locals adore this family-owned café.
After visiting a store dedicated to the outdoors and fueled with made-with-love snacks, your little ones may be itching to get outside! It’s a perfect time to take a serene winter walk through Whitehorse Trail. Take one of three trailheads and go explore! Be sure to check the County website for updates on road closures and as always, pack warm clothes and good boots.
Make sure everyone works up an appetite on that walk, because, once again, it’s time for pie! Hanky Pies in Granite Falls serves up 11 different flavors, plus all-day breakfast and lunch specials! Not only does Hanky Pies support local farmers, they offer discounts for veterans, active military and first responders.
