Staycation opportunities abound in King County

As of this spring, 4,500 businesses in King County had either temporarily or permanently closed. These were our favorite restaurants and barsthe barber we’ve been going to for years or the local shop where we did our holiday shopping. There’s no doubt that our local businesses need our help now more than ever.

Fortunately, we know a lot more about the virus than we did back in the spring. And our business community has gone to great lengths to accommodate for COVID-19 precautions. Which means we can patronize our local businesses while still being safe.

Since many of us have canceled vacations, people are embracing staycations as a way to get out of the house. A destination like the Cedarbrook Lodge in SeaTac is the perfect staycation getaway, equipped with a spa and 18 acres of grounds to explore.
