Federal Way Things to Do

  • Go to Seattle

    When in Federal Way, the choice is allways going to seattle since the small city of federal way has not much of a night life and attractions. Federal way ias actually nearer to Tacoma, being the next door neighbor but most locals prefer to go to Seattle which is about a 35 minute drive via Interstate 5 North so it is not much a hassle going to...

  • Drive Around Tips

    Driving in Federal Way can be confusing with the assortment of different numbered streets and the directions. An example is 1617 S 324th St, meaning its 1677 south at 324th street. If it is your first time here, better have a map quest or rand mcnally maps handy in your car. Remember that you main point of reference is the Interstate 5!

  • Water sports

    Water is big around Federal Way. The city is located right on the Puget Sound, and the area has many lakes. Everyone has a boat of some sort. My family had four -- a canoe, two kayaks and a ski boat that my dad built from some sort of kit, and which could only pull a skiier out of the water if he or she weighed 80 pounds or less. (I was over the...

  • Seafair

    Perhaps the biggest event in the Puget Sound area is Seafair. It is held throughout July and into the first week of August every year and features hydroplane races on Lake Washington. In 2006, the 57th annual race will be held. Seafair is more than just hydroplane races - although the races are definitely the big draw. The fair also features an air...

  • Olympic National Park

    When I am in the Seattle area for an extended stay, one of my most favorite things to do is visit Olympic National Park on the Olympic Peninsula. It is easily accessed from Federal Way by driving south through Tacoma and then over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (aka, "Galloping Gerty")The Olympic National Park is huge, beautiful and remote. The hiking...

Federal Way Restaurants

  • Don't Pass up the Gyros!!!

    I had to click on one of the themes for this restaurants, and because they did not list Greek, I just picked as you see. I have to say that this is without a doubt the best Greek food that I have tasted here in the Seattle/Tacoma area! This is a very low end place that seats about 20, but the food will make up for any decor/location faults! The...

  • Waterfront Dining

    Amid an overabundance of chain stores and restaurants, Salty's is breath of fresh air. It does have sister restaurants in Alkai Beach and Portland, but it is not really a chain. Salty's is an institution in Redondo Beach, just next door to Federal Way. It was there when I was growing up, and was there long before all the chains in Federal Way...

  • Please tell me it ain't so!

    Federal Way is very middle class, with no extreme wealth and no extreme poverty either. Most homes are single family dwellings with shingle roofs and wood siding painted in subtle earth tones. Except for one.During my latest trip to Seattle, I took a side trip down memory lane to take a gander at the house my family lived in during my junior high,...

  • School Daze

    This could have been Federal Way's most interesting architecture. This is Federal Way High School, my alma mater. Go Eagles! When I moved to Federal Way, it was the only high school in the area, and had been for several decades. During my early years, Federal Way went through a growth spurt, and Thomas Jeffersen, the rival school was built. Then...
