UPDATE: This post has been changed since it was first published. Jaxx Boutique is open today and has been added to the list.
The Fourth of July is Monday and many businesses in Eastlake will be open. Check our list below to see which stores and restaurants will be operating.
Getting in and out of the neighborhood, particularly late in the day and in the evening before and after the fireworks can be tricky. You may find much of what you need right here in the neighborhood.
For information on where to drive and park in Eastlake on the Fourth, see our previous post complete with a downloadable map. Information on Metro transit is at the end of the list.
Information on the Family Fourth at Lake Union and the fireworks show (which usually begins around 10 p.m.) can be found on the event’s website.
If I missed your Eastlake business, please let me know what hours you’ll be open on the Fourth and if you have anything special planned for the holiday. Email me at email@example.com.
