Seattle waterfront has stunning views over West Seattle and the Puget Sound, and it’s a fun place to walk and explore. There are multiple seafood restaurants for a quick bite (Anthony’s Bell Street Diner) or fine dining (Six Seven). You can also shop at unique souvenir or novelty shops or ride the Great Wheel.
Covered in monumental artworks, this award-winning nine-acre sculpture park on the waterfront is Seattle’s largest downtown green space. Free public tours take place Saturdays and Sundays at 1 pm. Tours begin outside the PACCAR Pavilion.
Take the water taxi from its dock near the Seattle Ferry Terminal and enjoy a 15-min boat ride to Alki beach. From here, take a leisure stroll along the beach on a 2.5 mile flat and well-maintained path. Lighthouse, restaurants, bars and cafes are along the beach. Salty’s on Alki with sweeping views of Elliott Bay and Seattle skyline offers award-winning weekend brunch.
