Microadventures in Seattle Southside

A trip doesn't have to be of epic proportions to be incredible. In fact, some of the best travel stories come from finding joy, wonder, and fun in unexpected places. That's why here in Seattle Southside we are focusing on the microadventure - the walk off the beaten path that takes you on an incredible journey without taking up too much of your time, energy, or cash.

Maury Island Incident Mural

The origins of the Men in Black can be traced right back here to Seattle Southside, where a UFO sighting and subsequent possible hush-up operation called the Maury Island Incident took place over 75 years ago. Today, the events of this incident are commemorated with the Maury Island Incident Mural which you can visit at any time.
