Great places for bowling, all around Seattle

Go have a ball! Where to knock down tenpins with kids.

Seattle bowling: Things are rolling along at local bowling alleys again, with COVID precautions and distancing and masking, of course. 

Many young kids love bowling as it’s fairly easy to pick up, and most bowling alleys will gutters for children, as well as rolling stations so kids can get help directing the huge balls before they themselves have huge biceps. 

Here are some great lanes to hit when you and your child need an indoor activity away from home. Grab your masks and bring along sanitizer! The lanes are open at limited capacity (at 20 or 50 percent, depending on the local phase), with social distancing, and shoes and balls are sanitized regularly. Check websites for the most up-to-date information on hours, reservation recommendations and the local COVID phase requirements.
