Experiencing the Everett Art Walk

A Walk to Remember in Everett

If you’re in town, this is an inspiring evening of the arts in Everett as the local business come together to celebrate the arts on this night each month. It’s a showcase of great visual, literary and performing artists hailing from Everett and from other regions about. It is locally called the popular Everett Art Walk and people from miles around fill the strip just walking in leisurely and curious fashion.

Often, you find the usual participating businesses. Along Hewitt Avenue itself, visit the Black Lab Gallery, where they say “art doesn’t suck”, with a featured emerging or known contemporary artist displaying his or her works. It even has its own brew bar. Or perhaps you’d prefer another beer joint on the same street, The Independent Beer Bar, with 16 taps of beer and cider to choose from.

If wine is more to your taste, the Port Gardner Bay Winery is the place to hang out in their new location in Rucker Street. For your tattooing and piercing needs your go-to shops are the Lion’s Paw on Wetmore and the Sunken Ship on Hewitt, and get tattooed by some of Everett’s celebrated tattooists.

Another art space to see is the Artspace Everett Loft on Hoyt Avenue, where Everett’s young and emerging artists live and work. See their varied forms of art in painted and sculpted expressions. A full service photography solution, Clear Image, located in Colby avenue, caters to all your photo needs. The Anchor Pub is a concert venue, bar and restaurant, and the place to eat healthy is the Valley Organic Deli for your meals, served fresh, organic and different. These are just some of the participating businesses you’d encounter if you walk the Art Walk in Everett.

Living near Art

Stay close to the action every Art Walk event if you stay at our hotel in Everett. Don’t miss this once-a-month celebration of art and performance. Every third Thursday of the month, from 6PM to 10PM, a strip of avenue in Everett comes alive in lights, colors and sounds celebrating art and a few other things besides.

The Charm of Everett’s Museums

A Collection of Museums for the Whole Family

Everett boasts of a couple of history-rich aviation museums plus other museums that are as engaging, educational, and inspiring to kids and adults.

The Flying Heritage Museum located in Paine Field, Everett offers aeronautical discovery of largely combat aircraft used in the last world war with the latest technology of the time. Aircraft from Japan, Great Britain, Germany, Russia, and the US, where some are the last surviving units of its kind, can be appreciated on the grounds or when they take to the skies. Small by standards, the museum’s rare offerings are unquestionably authentic.

Another museum, the Museum of Flight Restoration Center in Paine Field Airport also, is a restorative museum and a reserve collection where volunteers work thousands of hours to accurately restore acquired planes to their original aesthetics and function. The public is invited to see on-going work on these vintage planes.

The Schack Art Center features art work exhibits from local and international artists, also professionals and emerging artists. It has first class production studios for learning art, art sales and auctions, and even a glassblowing experience.

At Imagine Children’s Museum, a fun space for kids 12 years and below, near the Schack Art Center, is a multi-awarded art center with a water-play area and a rooftop playground.

What’s inside Boeing?

Surely you have flown on a 747 in your lifetime and must have wondered where they build those
jumbo jets. While Boeing’s corporate offices are headquartered in Seattle, a much larger manufacturing plant, the size of 40 football fields, sprung in Everett in the 1960s to be the birthplace of the 747, the world’s most recognizable aircraft. After its maiden flight in 1969, the 747 held the largest passenger capacity record in the next 37 years with over 1,500 jets made in Everett since.

The much admired company opened its doors for public tours of their massive facilities so that everyone can have an appreciation of great American aviation ingenuity spread in 90 acres of land making it the biggest manufacturing building in the world, where over 30,000 aerospace employees call home. Boeing Everett receives 1,000 visitors every day.

Your tour begins at the Future of Flight Aviation Center in Seattle. Then the tour of the Assembly Plant follows in Everett where you can watch how the 747 and other Boeing jet models are put together. It’s a great getaway for kids and the family.

The Business Traveler at Everett Hotel

A Good Night Sleep

There are many business hotels around with top rate amenities like fancy board rooms and sprawling conference halls, and yet a frequent business traveller is just another tired guy who needs his good night sleep. Apart from a warm, comfortable bed in a clean, fresh-smelling space, the guest also looks forward to the amenities he paid for with good dollar.

Feedback tells of what a discerning business traveler values most in a hotel of choice. He would prefer some must-have amenities, like a fridge, a microwave oven, a coffee maker. Imperatives also are a good-sized desk to work on, fast wi-fi, and a phone for local and overseas calls. A soft sofa and a TV would be great distractions if he wants to relax. Waking up to a hot complimentary breakfast, a 24-hour business center, a gym facility would make good business sense in hotel practice.

Not in the least will our travelling guest appreciate excellent concierge service, shuttle service, laundry service, and of course, dining options on-site and in proximity, including shopping.
