Owned and operated by veteran competitive swimmer David Tait, Evo Swim School leads fun, structured classes that tutor young pupils in the watery arts. The classes start swimmers at a young age, introducing babes as young as 9 months to the water, and range up to lessons in advanced strokes that prep 12-year-olds for competitive swimming. The school sets parents' minds at ease with low student-to-teacher ratios; entry level and intermediate classes have one instructor in the pool for every four students.
During classes, parents are free to relax in the WiFi-enabled waiting room, where pool-overlooking windows provide an easy way to keep an eye on paddling young'uns. A kids' play area is also on hand to keep water-shy siblings and rust-prone sibling bots occupied while their amphibious brethren frolic in the water.

Long waits and harsh lighting are just two inconveniences that can plague a standard trip to the post office. The process leaves little room for relaxation, let alone time to kick back and enjoy a freshly made latte. That's what Sip and Ship hopes to remedy. The family-owned business combines two different worlds—the post office and a coffee shop—into an operation that runs as smoothly as its coffee goes down.
The process is both friendly and simple: customers bring in items they need to send far away, such a piece of art, an old-fashioned letter, or a cursed monkey's paw. The Sip and Ship team wraps, packs, and ships it—all while customers wind down with organic, locally roasted drinks and homemade cookies and scones. In between all the sipping and shipping, customers can squeeze in some shopping, too; the store stocks its shelves with bottled wine, bath products, and even children's toys.
Belltown Pull-Apart's Seattle pedal-cab tour is the premier eco-friendly way to tour the city's downtown must-sees. Because the two-seat pedal cabs—also known as pedicabs, bicycle-taxis, rickshaws, and bike-shaws—are powered entirely by enormous human calf muscles, they produce no pollution, noise, or bilious green clouds. As you glide past landmarks such as the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, and Nicola Tesla's enormous rain generator, your ebullient pedaler will share all sorts of insider Seattle lore. Belltown Pull-Apart makes sure that each cab is sturdy, stable, and completely bear-free, so you can cozy up to your seatmate without fear of the lunatic beast's furry claw. Tours run year-round and depart from 2308 4th Avenue. Call ahead to schedule your tour.
