The Emerald City Wanderers
Seattle, Washington

We are a walking club which hosts non-competitive walking events for fun, fitness, and friendship.  We’re a Seattle-based chapter of America’s Walking Club, and we’re known as the “Holiday Club” because we host organized walking events on or near holidays – New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Halloween.   We also offer many self-guided year-round-walks in Seattle.


Join us for our next event!

Join us for a walk to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

Celebrate the Irish and all immigrant groups on an early Spring walk through the revitalized and redeveloped High Point neighborhood.  Enjoy sweeping Seattle views, beautiful planned-communities, the P-Patch, several parks, and the highest point in Seattle at Myrtle Reservoir Park.  Be sure to wear green if you fancy it.
