The Kirkland Tourism Program is building new itineraries to help visitors experience the best that Kirkland has to offer, and they want to hear from residents and local businesses.

What is your perfect day in Kirkland? What are the favorite activities, restaurants or places that spark your interest? Or, what are the unique experiences that define Kirkland?

Share your thoughts on the new tourism Facebook page at Explore Kirkland. This new page will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in Kirkland, so be sure to “like” the page so you don’t miss out.

“We aim to bring people together so we can all experience the many things that Kirkland has to offer,” said Ellen Miller-Wolfe, the City of Kirkland’s Economic Development manager. “We know that everyone has a different way of looking at the city and we need that perspective.”

The upcoming Northwest Bookfest is an example of one of many events to be featured on the Explore Kirkland Facebook page. Bookfest is happening Oct. 1-2 at various downtown Kirkland locations. The event will feature celebrity authors from across the country, writing workshops and fun activities for the entire family.

Businesses and residents are also encouraged to submit events on the Explore Kirkland Web site. Events must be of interest to visitors. Events that are posted on the Web page may be included on the Facebook page and in monthly event guides.
