The Ultimate Spring Break Staycation in Issaquah

Before the first day of spring arrives on March 20th, you better get busy making Spring Break plans! If a tropical vacation isn’t in the cards for you this year, there are a ton of activities in and around our Issaquah community to explore during your week off! Keep reading for our top Spring Break activities you can find right here in our neighborhood! 


A visit to the Cougar Mountain Zoo is the perfect day trip! On the Northside of Cougar Mountain, you can admire endangered species such as Madagascar Lemurs, Bengal Tigers from India, and a multitude of birds from all over the world! You can even see tigers up close and personal with a walk through the ‘Tiger Tunnel’!


If you’re looking to get out and explore nature, a hike on Tiger Mountain might be perfect for you! With six peaks to explore, including Rattlesnake Ridge and Cougar Mountian, you can spend the whole day adventuring. Make sure to pack a sack lunch, some hikes are up to 6.2 miles long!


Are you an adrenaline junkie? Spend your Spring Break paragliding off Poo Poo Point! Located on the shoulder of West Tiger Mountain the area was logged as recently as the 1970s resulting in a clear area, perfect for taking flight! Seattle Paragliding organizes tandem flights so no experience is necessary! 


If you’re looking to keep your feet on the ground, you might enjoy a stroll through Issaquah admiring all the public art and murals that our community offers! Along Front Street, you’ll find James Kenedy’s “And Mirtha Danced” sculpture as well as Larry Kangas’ mural titled “A Century of Dairying in Issaquah.” 

You don’t need a sandy beach or a fruity drink in your hand to have a memorable Spring Break! You can make memories that will last a lifetime right in your own neighborhood!
