Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority has announced the launch of its revamped website. The update site offers a comprehensive trip planning guide for visitors to Seattle, Tukwila, SeaTac and Des Moines. The guide has quick and easy access to destinations, restaurants, accommodations and more across Seattle Southside.

“This new website provides a powerful and visually compelling look at Seattle Southside as a destination,” says Ashley Comar, vice president of marketing and communications of Seattle Southside RTA. “We’re thrilled to offer a clean and easy-to-use site that group business, events, conferences, conventions and leisure travelers can use to plan their next trip to Seattle and beyond.”

Users of the updated website can browse through attractions and find special deals on parking, hotels, dining and adventures. The "Add to Trip" function adds the user's selections to a customized itinerary and creates a personalized URL that can be shared with fellow travelers.

“This new site truly showcases all there is to see and do in Seattle Southside and provides visitors with an easy way to plan their next visit,” says Katherine Kertzman, president and CEO of Seattle Southside RTA. “Visitors and groups can do and see more due to the destination’s affordability, central location to and from the airport and downtown Seattle, multiple transportation options and unique attractions like the Museum of Flight and the new Seattle Chocolates factory tour. All of this and more is easily found and easily accessible on the new website.”

At Brasada Ranch, guests are inspired by the wide-open setting, sustainable and contemporary design, limitless recreation opportunities and flexible event spaces that include indoor barn venues, outdoor areas, and new spaces including The Studio and Cascade Event Lawn.

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
