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 our club is known as the “Holiday Club” because we sponsor organized walking events on or near holidays – New Year’s Eve and Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Halloween.   We also host many self-guided year-round-walks in Seattle.
