Activities and Attractions
In the past few years or so, there has been a big push in Bothell to revitalize its downtown area, both to celebrate the community’s past and keep up with the changing times. Now called ‘Bothell Landing
,’ this area is full of shops, restaurants, spas, and public spaces. The Park at Bothell Landing
is one of the main attractions, offering trails, a playground, a viewpoint on the river, and an amphitheater that hosts community events. You’ll also have access to the Sammamish River Trail
, a ten-mile paved walkway that is great for biking and jogging.
Many of the businesses in the downtown area have that great family-owned been-here-forever feel, like Hillcrest Bakery
, which has been concocting Dutch and European goodies since 1965, or the Ranch Drive-In
that has everything you’d expect from a drive-in: delicious burgers, crinkle-cut fries, and handmade malts.
The Country Village
is a quaint shopping center that features shops and boutiques, rides on a mini train, a farmer’s market in the summer months, and art, music, and dance classes. Heck, you can even hold your wedding there!
