The Olympic Peninsula »                . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Naturally, our first question to you is, "What type of entertainment do you like?" You will find just about any form of entertainment you can imagine within a comfortable driving distance of Skokomish Farms.

Just a few miles from the Farms, you'll find the Mason County Fairgrounds where there's something going on nearly every weekend like traveling garage sales to the Oysterfest where oyster shuckers from around the U.S. come to compete. And the Mason County Fair in August where you see your favorites from jams and jellies to livestock. Or better yet exhibit your goods in the Fair.

Between Allyn and Grapeview, there's a quaint Arts & Crafts Festival during the summer, where artists in small tents gather at the Fair Harbor Marina on the South Sound to display their talents.

During the spring the Skokomish Tribe participates with other tribes from around the Puget Sound in long canoes paddling their way to Lummi Island in the north Puget Sound.

Don't miss Logging Days in the early summer and Fantasy Forest in late fall that kicks off the Christmas season.

At the Skokomish Tribe's Lucky Dog Casino you can listen to live music on the weekends, and if you, or drive a few miles south to the Little Creek Casino where you'll find top name entertainment on a regular basis.

Now, let's shift to a considerably larger area - the Puget Sound region.

The great thing about living in Mason County, is that you're outside life in the fast lane, but everything you'd like to do is usually within a comfortable driving distance.

You can spend the day on the Pacific Ocean at Ocean Shores about 60 miles west, and that night watch hockey at the Tacoma Dome.

Bellingham, near Canada's British Columbia border, looks like forever and a day away, but is actually less than four hours of which 30 minutes is a relaxing ferry ride from Kingston to Edmonds.

Leave your car at Bremerton, and take the ferry to spend a day at Pike Street Market Place in Seattle. Make sure you take a shopping bag, there's lots of local organic produce. There's always a great fish throwing show by the local fish mongers at the entrance.  

And someday soon, we hope to see Skokomish Farms with a booth at the Market.

While you're walking back to the ferry drop by "SAM", the Seattle Art Museum. Assuming you're afoot, the Puget Sound ferry is free to Seattle, then a small charge returning to Bremerton.

Trying to relate every activity that takes place during the year around the Puget Sound would take pages. Remember, you're talking about an area that has a 4.1 million population.

And at night, come back to Skokomish Farms, where everything is wonderfully very, very quiet.........


The Seattle City Lights »
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

We'd be remiss if we didn't isolate Seattle by itself since it's really one of the five major entertainment hubs of the West Coast.

You'll find everything from first-run Broadway productions to honky-tonk jazz on a regular basis. There are small theatres with local talent everywhere in the city. 

For pro-sports you have the Seattle Seahawks for football, the Seattle Mariners in baseball. And then there's ice hockey, basketball, soccer, among other sports. Choose your favorite, and root for the home team 

Seattle even supports an international film festival, acronym SIFF. We attended this year, and were stunned at the huge local support of the movie festival.

There are also mini-productions throughout the area by small theatre groups.

There are countless seminars, workshops, and classes throughout the Puget Sound region all year long. And if education is your goal there are a myriad of universities, colleges and learning institutions throughout the Puget Sound.

A great place to search when you're trying to decide what to see and do is to visit the Seattle Times website at
