With three kids, I need deals like these in this recession. My favorite which I already knew about? Baja Fresh,. Hand down.

I ate there last Sunday with 2 kids for less then $8. My daughter loves their fresh and FREE salsa bar and ate like a quart of their pico de gallo.

Then we went on to Sears and bought a heavily reduced Land's End Down vest from for my daughter for $4, originally $38. Nice, eh?

Next Stop? We found 2 polyester Speedo competition suits for my daughter for $16 which were normally $60 each. Thank you Marshalls.

I figure that Sunday I saved over $120. Can't go wrong with that, eh?

Free Sail Boats Excursions

LocationThe Center for Wooden Boats, 1010 Valley St, Seattle, WA
Event typePublic Events
Action WordsBoat

Our Cast Off! program allows visitors the chance to sail in classic boats.
The boats we use include: Admirable, a Bristol Bay Gillnetter, Amie, a Friendship sloop, Colleen Wagner, an Egret Sharpie, our long-boat Discovery, our New Haven Sharpie Betsy D, or a visiting classic.

Before and after your sail take a walk on the docks and discover the boats. Watch the volunteer crews rigging the boats. They’ll be happy to answer any question you might have, and you may even have a chance to help with the rigging!

We sail rain or shine, but wind conditions may keep us at the dock. Reservations are taken day-of-sail only at the CWB front desk. We do not accept phone reservations. This is a popular activity so please arrive early to reserve a spot on the boat.
