If you’re looking for a deeper dive in the sometimes forgotten corners of our region’s history, then Atlas Obscura tours are for you. I took one of Lake View Cemetery — a place I thought I knew well from my underage drinking years — and was surprised by all I learned.
The beloved website — known for guiding travelers “off the beaten path” — has set up operations here in the form of cool workshops and tours. Upcoming offerings include a walking tour of the “Past, Present and Future of the Alaska Way Viaduct,” a “Mechanical Music” workshop with Antiquarian Horologist (it means someone who studies time) Nico Cox, and a “Sculpture Stroll” around Magnuson park, including a visit to the original Sound Garden.
And you thought you didn’t have anything to do this weekend!
