This year I’ve spent a lot of time exploring Seattle North Country (Snohomish County). One of my favorite adventures happened in the Paine Field Aviation District. An easy day trip from Seattle, or even a weekend getaway, this district will have you discovering airplanes used during WWII like the Polikarpov U-2/Po-2 flown by the “Night Witches” to modern-day planes like the 787 Dreamliners at Boeing.
There are also plenty of places for drinks and eats at places like Diamon Knot Brewery & Alehouse, The Scotsman Bistro, and Z’s Burgers. Best of all, everything is only a short drive from the Hilton Garden Inn North Seattle, which happens to be right across from the Future of Flight Center.
