Top Ten Things to do in Seattle
Grab your umbrella (we’re serious about the umbrella) and walking shoes, and come explore Seattle! Seattle is a culturally-diverse city surrounded by water and breathtaking mountain ranges. The Grants Managers Network Host Committee is putting together fun activities and tasty places to dine for the conference. Plan to come early or stay longer and enjoy getting to know the local cuisine, culture and natural beauty.
The Host Committee has put together a “Top 10” list of things to sample during your stay. To see the full list, complete with pictures, click here go to the blog.
We will be adding to the blog periodically until the conference, so feel free to post comments or questions.
Here is an abbreviated version of the Top 10 list:
