November is National Gratitude Month, and we invite you to express your thanks for the things that make you happy. Redmond, Washington is known as “Geek City USA” and we are geeking out over our community, and the myriad opportunities we have to get involved and give back.
Take a day to explore our many parks and trails, and be grateful that we live in a city surrounded by lush natural beauty. Walk through one of our incredible shopping and dining districts, and be grateful for our neighbors who provide such a diverse selection of storefronts for us to shop. Or, spend quality time with your loved ones by participating in a fundraising event, giving back to the community while showing your gratitude toward the people who are meaningful to your life.
The best way to say “I appreciate you” is to give your time to someone, and share a life-changing experience together. One fun way to make memories is to take advantage of the many escape room experiences offered in Redmond.
At Quest Factor, you and your friends can become a treasure hunter, scientist, or cryptologist, and immerse yourself in unforgettable live-action experiences. Or, think outside the box and challenge your group to a series of intricate logic puzzles mixed with Virtual Reality at Conundroom Quest. Or, you can bring fantasies to life by navigating your crew through five uniquely themed rooms at Flee Escape Rooms. If you’re feeling especially grateful (and adventurous), treat your friends to all three escape room experiences in one weekend — You can thank us later.
Gather your grateful group, and get involved at one of several charitable events this month. Bring the whole gang to the fun and family-friendly Winter Pineapple Classic, where you can geek out on doing good. Show a spark of kindness at Spark Pizza, raising money for suicide prevention & awareness. You can even find balance and peace-of-mind by bringing a loved one to the Magic of Forgiveness workshop at Redmond’s Hyatt House.
End your Redmond experience by strolling along Redmond Central Connector, where you can show gratitude for the fact that we have such a cool spot to connect with friends, access Redmond Town Center, or run/ride to visit nearby neighboring cities such as Kirkland or Sammamish. Redmond is pretty great, and we’re grateful to be here.
