Ready to throw that list to the wind and enjoy the last few days of the holiday season?
Here are five ideas for some free Seattle holiday fun.

HAPPY holidays to you and yours.
Sheraton Gingerbread Village
Wander the festive atmosphere downtown; then pop into the Sheraton for a cozy stroll through gingerbread masterpieces.
Teddy Bear Suite
After the gingerbread village, take a short walk over to the Fairmont to tour this palatial teddy-packed suite. It’s a great spot for adorable kiddie photos, too—if your kids will stay still long enough and you have a good low-light camera.
(Make sure to grab a free candy cane on your way out.)
An armada of lighted ships alight at different waterfront communities around Seattle through December 23. There’s even a choir of carolers to add to the magic. For a full list of scheduled stops, click here.
Christmas Light Displays
Walk or drive around one of these impressive neighborhood light shows:
- Candy Cane Lane (Ravenna)
- Olympic Park Manor (North Ballard)
Seattle Center Winterfest Train
Stay warm inside while the kids marvel at miniature magnificence. (They could even get a turn operating the train!)
There are lots more Winterfest activities in and around the surrounding building, too, including ice skating. You can find a full list of events here.
And if you’re having a hard time letting go of all those to-do’s, this article should help you step back from the candy cane cliff.
