Washington Homeschool Convention and Curriculum

LeMay Car Museum

  • Where/When: Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Seven days a week through Labor Day at the LeMay Car Museum (2702 East D Street in Tacoma)
  • Why Go: If you're hankering for the new-museum smell -- sort of like that new-car smell -- LeMay might just do it for you as it just opened in early June! The museum aims to celebrate America's love affair with the automobile and is set to house up to 350 cars, trucks and motorcycles from private owners, corporations and the LeMay collection, which amassed a Guinness Book record of more than 3,500 vehicles in the mid 90s.
  • Pricing: $14 General Admission (more details)



  • Where/When: Broadway Performance Hall (1625 Broadway in Seattle) at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 15, Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17; additional 2 p.m. show on Sunday, June 17
  • Why Go: Seussical brings to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination, Jojo. Journey with the youthful cast of Broadway Bound though the colorful characters as they transport you from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
  • Pricing: $17.50
