Ways to Pass Time on a Rainy Winter Day in the PNW

To most, the rainy days seem never-ending during the winter months in the Pacific Northwest. Luckily, Alexan Heartwood’s centralized location provides easy access to a multitude of rainy day activities! Listed below are just a few ways we occupy ourselves during the cold and rainy winter months here in Issaquah!! 


What better way to kill time waiting for the rain to pass than by enjoying a movie? Regal Issaquah Highlands IMAX theater is the perfect place to catch the new blockbuster movie! Lean back in their reclining seats and grab some popcorn, their wide selection of movies to choose from is sure to entertain your entire family! Plus, children and seniors get special discounted tickets! 


There are plenty of museums in our surrounding area to check out including the Bellevue Arts Museum,  home to multiple large gallery host shows and installations, the Gilman Town Hall Museum that traces the history of Issaquah, and the KidQuest Children’s Museum, the perfect place for your little ones to burn off some energy!


Host a good old-fashioned game night in the comfort of your Alexan Heartwood apartment home! Your open concept floor plan allows for you to invite over a handful of friends for an evening of friendly competition! Grab some snacks from our neighborhood Safeway and swing by our local Target to pick up a new board game!


What better way to pass the time than by getting lost in a good book! No matter what genre piques your interest, you’re sure to find your next read when you stop into Half Priced Books, Barnes and Nobel, or Brick and Mortar!


Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about finding ways to occupy your time while you’re stuck inside! We hope we were able to provide you with a few ideas as to how to spend your next rainy day!  Don’t forget to stay up to date with all of Alexan Heartwood’s most recent happenings by following us on Facebook and Instagram!
