Overview

Walking along the Seattle Waterfront is a perfect way to soak up some Northwest atmosphere. Take in views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains while exploring Olympic Sculpture Park, the Seattle Aquarium, shops, and restaurants like Ivar’s, a local landmark, where you can watch the ferries load and depart while you eat.

A nice place to visit if you’re in the area. Good restaurants and sights. Wish I had taken a boat tour, but I didn’t have time.

Nice view at both day and night time, it is a quiet and beautiful place to have a seaside walk alone or with friends.

The waterfront is a great place to walk. It houses a number of tourist destinations (the Great Wheel, the aquarium etc) but it’s also a destination in itself if you simply want to watch the water. Great views.
