Trying new things keeps life from getting stale and out of touch—It’s like updating your technology, hairstyle or (out)look. We encourage you to switch it up, and pledge to try one new local thing this month. It’s a new year, and a good opportunity to challenge yourself to try something you’ve always thought about doing, all while supporting the Redmond community in the process.
Discover a new restaurant and share your special finding with others. Many of our local restaurants are offering curbside pickup and/or home delivery so you can enjoy delicious meals while ensuring adherence to safety guidelines. Try something exciting and give your taste buds some new flavors. Visit our Geeking Out on Takeout blog to find a new Redmond restaurant you’ll surely enjoy.
A New Year is an opportunity to start the year strong and get back on track, and since local gyms may not yet be open, now is the perfect time to try a new style of health and fitness. From flat and even routes to more challenging terrain, Redmond has all kinds of trails to get your heart rate pumping and get you feeling exhilarated. Challenge yourself with a walking or biking path that will provide you with a change of scenery and will shake up your regular routine—a perfect kickstart to your goals for 2021. What’s more, you can support Redmond’s local economy through our Bike Shops, find out how here!
New reason to vacation: National Plan for Vacation Day celebrated on January 26, 2021. This is the perfect opportunity to plan your next adventure. Experience a warm water style “Polar Plunge” at the Archer Hotel. Their pool is open and guests can reserve a time slot for just their room (like a private pool reservation!) and if you’re a Pacific Northwest resident, book through ArcherHotel.com to receive up to 25% off your stay. This is a perfect way to getaway without going far, while also supporting Redmond’s economy through lodging locally.
If you’re planning on hosting an event in Redmond you should check out The Emerald Forest. Featured on an episode of Treehouse Masters, this unique treehouse is an open-space room surrounded by Redmond’s green forest. And while you’ll be minutes away from the city, you’ll feel like you’re in an entirely new world. Learn more and book your tour here!
Happy New Year from all of us at Experience Redmond!
