Everett Things to Do

  • Jetty Island (generally only open July...

    Serving the dual purpose of both a recreational site and a bird habitat, Jetty Island was created for two completely different purposes: there needed to be a place to dump the riprap and sludge dredged from the port and the Snohomish River, and there was a desire to create a breakwater that protected the marina and port facilities from the rougher...

    Every summer I made sure I got to Jetty Island, it is an awesome place to go get away from it all and it's so close you can look out your window and see it. On a summers day you actually feel like your in a tropical paradise. Jetty Island began its existence in 1895 with plans to build a fresh water harbor. This man-made island was originally meant...

Everett Restaurants

  • Bar and Grill and Desserts

    I only walked up here from the train station to get a slice of cake. Therefore, I can say that I have sampled the food very extensively at all. It has the atmosphere more of a dive bar, but with a family dining area in it. It is unfortunate that it is kept so dark in here as having some seats face east towards the mountains might actually give the...

    This is the café inside the Everett Station, and there really isn't a huge amount of other food and drink options in the area immediately around the station - a block away there is one more, and several blocks further on there are a few more.For a relatively captive audience, the prices are not extremely bad, but the price for what you actually get...

  • Station Barbecue

    I did not eat here, having arrived at the place several minutes before closing time. However, other than the overpriced coffee shop inside Everett Station, this is your best bet in terms of finding something to eat near Everett Station. It is only about 1 block away from the main waiting room - and about two blocks from the bus platforms including...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Much of north Everett was built on landfill and can get terribly muddy. True story told by Everett historian Dave Dilgard... In the late 1890's a gentleman found a hat lying in the middle of Hewitt Avenue went to pick it up and there was a man's head under it. He told the gentleman to get some help as he had sunk in the mud and was sitting on his horse.
