Last Call for Summer Fun!

The summertime can be one of the South Sound’s best-kept secrets — it’s when we prove to people it doesn’t always rain here. We stock up on Vitamin D for those dreary months ahead. The tail end of summer is August and September, so take advantage of the (hopefully) blue skies and summer sun with hikes, bikes, and fishin’ lines. Here is your ultimate outdoor guide; you’ll find tips and tricks for everything from geocaching to hiking with your dog. Grab summer by the reins and get outside.
