Many activities in Lynnwood focus on locals instead of tourists. Alderwood Mall is a popular place to shop. You may also enjoy visiting the ice skating rink, the Alderwood Manor Heritage Cottage at Heritage Park, or one of several spas in the area.

When to Visit Lynnwood, Washington
Lynnwood is about 18 miles north of Seattle, far enough away that you'll be able to avoid some of the big city crowds, but close enough that you should expect some of Seattle's tourism to bleed into the surrounding areas, including Lynnwood. The most popular time to visit the Pacific Northwest is summer, when the weather is beautiful and the rain isn't too terrible. You'll notice hotel rates going up during the summer months, however, so either book well in advance or avoid this season to score the best rates.
